Certain times of the year make sense for weight loss goals; the holiday season is NOT one of them, particularly for those who attend several ‘holiday events’ over the break. Instead, here are some tips to help you maintain your weight and stay conscious of your eating habits: 1) Do a walkthrough. Check out the food before sitting down to eat and plan your plate. 2) Wear fitted clothing. It may seem silly but wearing fitted clothing will help you be aware of your body and may prevent you from overindulging as you remind yourself of the fit. 3) Don’t skip meals. Starving yourself during the day in anticipation of dinner is counter-productive. If you don’t want to overindulge during dinner, be sure your stomach isn’t running on empty. Be aware of the choices you make but don’t be afraid to treat yourself.
