As you prepare for the holidays, bake your pies with a crust made out of oats! You’ll feel less guilty about indulging since it’s a healthier option.
Have a food you’re not super fond of, but at least can eat? Keep trying it! Over time, you’ll learn to (hopefully!) love the flavor.
Believe it or not, your skin reflects your health. Foods like salmon, broccoli, berries, cauliflower and cucumber are all great options to eat – as well as drinking plenty of water!
Want a snack? Nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fats. Snacking on them can also help you curb your hunger.
Eat cereal for breakfast? How big are you flakes? Studies have shown that the smaller the flakes, the more you eat (since they fill the bowl more). Measure out a portion size so you can get a feel for how much it really is.
Purchase a plate that has a wide rim on it. You’ll think you’re getting more food, even though you’re not.
Did you know that you can use up to 75% less salt if you use fresh lemon juice or zest in your recipes? It’s an added flavor that you can benefit from!
Grab your green and orange veggies! Eating the two can help your intake of Vitamin A, which is good for your eyesight and immune system.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget, but beverages add calories too. Be mindful of what you drink (watch for things like soda, beer and energy drinks) and always stay hydrated by having plenty of water.
The holiday season can be a challenging time to lose weight, so aim to at least maintain it. By doing so, you’ll feel better about enjoying the season with family & friends and be on the ball to start losing weight come the new year.
