I would like to share some tips of a friend of mine, Jennifer Lynn-Pullman. Many of you know her as the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist that works clients of B3. This time of year she is especially busy helping people develop a “game plan” for the holidays. Here are her tips developing your game plan for every phase of Thanksgiving day and dinner! Turkey Day Strategizing Another Holiday season is approaching quickly. For many people trying to lose weight or maintain their weight loss holidays can be really scary. Why would holiday’s be scary? Studies have shown that the average person gains 5-10 pounds during the holiday season. The holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas is about a month. Add in New Year’s and you are looking at about 5-6 weeks. This is a very short time in which to gain 5-10 pounds. When you have worked so hard to lose weight and get in the best shape you can, 5-10 pounds can really set you back. This Thanksgiving you can survive by following these simple tips. Maintain your normal routine Do not skip meals – eat breakfast and lunch – don’t try to “save up” calories. You will end up so hungry that you will definitely over do it and eat more than you need. Do not skip your exercise routine. – holidays are not vacations for exercise. Exercise is also not an excuse to eat more! Watch your portions Fill half your plate with vegetables, 1/4 starches, 1/4 protein Say no to seconds Limit calorie containing beverages Enjoy wine and cocktails in moderation – liquid calories do not fill you up, but they add up. Be smart about dessert Only eat the dessert you enjoy the most. If you can not narrow down your choice to just one, have just a taste of the desserts you like. What’s your game plan? What tips or techniques do you use during the holidays for healthy eating? Please take the time to share them with us by commenting below! Have a healthy and fit Thanksgiving!
