How much weight do you gain during holidays?

Did you know the average person gains less than a pound during the holidays? Instead of stressing out about weight gain, focus on eating and drinking for energy throughout the season. Here are some tips that may help: Eating natural whole foods will protect your mental health, energy levels, and digestion. Before a party, try to eat a balanced meal, complete with complex carbs, healthy fats, and quality protein. For potluck parties, offer to bring something healthy like a fruit salad or veggie tray. Don’t be afraid to try a seasonal treat! Eat treats mindfully, taking the time to savor the flavors. In the moment it might feel like alcoholic drinks make things merry, but keep in mind that alcohol is a depressant, reduces decision-making skills, dehydrates your cells, and of course isn’t safe if you drive. If you’re already feeling stressed, alcohol can often make things worse. Fortunately, a lot of exciting non-alcoholic drinks have entered the market, including kombucha, much-improved non-alcoholic beer, and low-sugar sparkling drinks. If you do want to drink alcohol, be sure to drink a lot of water after every drink. Looking for more tips on how to enjoy healthy and stress free holidays?
