Don’t be a stuffed turkey!

Use these holiday eating tips to keep you on your game…
Pre-party…
 

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat something solid, preferably clean proteins and fats, BEFORE you head out

 
At the dinner table…
 

  • Prioritize Protein!   Focus on foods that are high in protein.  The term protein is derived from the Greek word proteios, meaning “primary” of first importance.  The satiating effect of protein will help you resist gorging yourself with that twelfth helping of dessert.
  • Watch those drinks! Alcohol can lessen inhibitions and induce overeating while non-alcoholic beverages can be full of calories and sugar.
  • If you have a food allergy consider bringing something to the party yourself, that way you know there will be at least one item you can enjoy.
