We’re officially in the season of dread for those trying to stay on-track with their diets. The 63 days from Halloween to New Year’s Day is typically when we give ourselves unspoken permission to over-indulge…it’s the holidays, after all!
Plus, it’s hard to stay diligent when you’re surrounded by candies, baked goods, and high-calorie beverages.
So what can you do? Two things come to mind:
- You can make your “holiday game plan” now. By planning out a few targeted goals, you can still enjoy the holidays without compromising your health. Read more about it here.
- Don’t add to your stress by planning elaborate meals during the week. Eat simply by making these quick, easy meals which are featured in The 21-Day Meal Plan. Another way to save time in the kitchen is by batch cooking once or twice a week. Watch this video for my batch cooking suggestions.
Remember, surviving the holidays is not about deprivation! It’s about forming a strategy to eat healthy, delicious foods while avoiding the temptation of all those high-calorie, high-fat weight- and health-busters. As an extra bonus, you’ll avoid the guilt AND the bloat when the holidays are over. 🙂
A sensible person sees trouble and hides,
but naive people keep going and pay the penalty. (Proverbs 27:12, EHV)
