MemorialCare Health System Maintain Healthy Eating Habits During the Holidays
Plan AheadIf you know you are going to be attending a holiday party at night and will be indulging in not-so-healthy foods, eat healthy and low-calorie foods during the day to balance out your caloric intake, while still getting your daily nutrients.
Also, be sure to exercise that day to balance out the calories consumed and burned.
Make SubstitutionsMany ingredients in traditional holiday recipes can be substituted for ones that are not as unhealthy. Making healthy substitutions will lower your fat, calorie and sodium intake, helping you stay healthy this holiday season.
Avoid OvereatingYou will be much happier and feel better the next day if you resist the temptation of overeating.
Beverage ControlAlthough it is perfectly OK to raise a glass for a holiday toast, it is important to be conscious not to consume excessive calories through beverages.
ExerciseBe sure to keep up your normal exercise routine if you have the time to do so. For those whose exercise schedule is altered by the holidays, there are other ways to get your exercise in during the holiday season.
Be SelectiveBefore you begin eating at a holiday party, check out all of the options and choose the foods that you really want to eat. Enjoy the holidays and follow these tips to stay healthy and prepare for the New Year.
