People who recover the most quickly from the holidays are the ones who go in with a plan. These are top healthy holiday tips to make it through any occasion without totally derailing your diet:
1. REACH FOR GREENS.
Fill at least half of your plate with a green veggie, like green beans or Brussels sprouts.
2. CHOOSE A CARB.
Instead of going wild on every carb-heavy dish at the table, pick your favorite. Remember to eat slow and savor every bite.
3. LOAD UP ON PROTEIN.
Whatever protein is being served will be your secret weapon for not going overboard on sugar later. Protein helps to balance your blood sugar and ease cravings, so you won’t be tempted to double down on dessert.
Limit the days your a little off track over and rebound your diet right after.
