A Realists Guide to Holiday Eating

Posted in Fat Loss, Nutrition, Random Thoughts on December 9, 2009 by mboyle1959

My good friend and client Hank Morse of WROR and WKLB  asked me for my top 5 holiday eating tips so I thought I would share them with you.

#1- EAT LESS. This is the top tip. Eat less at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Remember, we don’t need 4-5 meals a day, we need 4-5 feedings a day.

#2 Plan to Fail- as above, don’t eat normally if you know you are going to attend a party. Eat sparingly during the day leading up to a party.

#3- Plan to Fail Part 2- get extra workouts in. Expend more calories in anticipation of taking in more calories.

#4- Forget all the stuff about sparkling water and celery. Just decrease your intake on “party” days and up your activity.

#5- Eat protein. Protein is filling and satiating. Better to eat chicken wings than chips in the mad, mad world of holiday parties.
