Eat your protein first. This helps to control appetite and regulate blood sugar.
Don’t Deprive Yourself. We all appreciate our favorite treats during the holidays. Allow yourself 1 or 2 bites and move on.
Opt for several small meals throughout the day. Larger meals lead to spikes in blood sugar & over eating. Enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables in small portions throughout the day to avoid hunger pangs and binging.
Avoid or reduce caffeine. Instead choose healthy green teas. Caffeine can intensify stress levels and cause hormonal imbalances.
Make time for exercise. Exercising lowers stress, regulates blood sugar, burns fat, builds muscle and makes us feel and look great!
Don’t sacrifice sleep. Holidays are a busy time. It's more important than ever to get the ZZZZ's you need to conquer your day! Lack of sleep is linked to over eating & higher stress levels.
Let your artistic creativity shine through! Update your holiday appetizer menu to include healthier and tasty options: Smoked salmon, trout, marinated vegetables & fresh fruit.
