Holiday Diet Success Strategies

Standard

  1. Eat Breakfast! Eating in the morning can prevent you from overeating later in the day. Also research suggests that people that eat breakfast regularly weigh less and develop less chronic diseases than those who do not (Timlin & Pereira 2007)
  2. Practice portion control: Accept that our perception of portions in the US is grossly overinflated. Read labels, use a smaller serving plate and try to stick to one serving.
  3. Practice mindful eating: Most people zone out and eat out of boredom or stress. Before eating ask if you’re really hungry and if what you’re about to eat is worth the calories.
  4. Don’t eat in front of the TV:Yes there will parades and football games off but save all of that for before or after you eat. Eating while televison watch encourages mindless eating.
