10 Tips to Help You Survive the Holiday Season

friends-581753_1920
by: Natalie Logan, RD, LD, Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine

Although it has the tendency to get a little crazy, the holiday season tends to be everyone’s favorite time of year. It’s always fun to see your relatives but with all of the office parties and family gatherings, it’s very easy for your health and nutrition goals to get sabotaged. Here are several tips that can help you get through the next few weeks.

  • Is Your Belly Empty?  Don’t go to a function starving (or skip a meal before getting there) as you’re more likely to overeat and eat more of the not so healthy stuff.  Instead, eat a healthy snack like fresh fruit or vegetables paired with a protein or healthy fat (i.e. apple with nut butter, veggies with hummus and a hard-boiled egg)
  • Limit or avoid the high calorie or sugary drinks (think eggnog, creamy coffee drinks, hot chocolate).  Keep in mind that alcohol adds extra empty calories and also alters your thinking when it comes to choosing junk foods. Beware!
  • At the family feast!  Try to fill at least half your plate with the veggie dishes.  Then grab a handful of lean protein and the rest of the plate can be your favorite sweet potato dish or mashed potatoes.  All in moderation just don’t forget about the colorful veggies first!
  • Move more, not less!  Not only will taking a walk or getting a workout in get you energized for the day, it will help to reduce holiday stress and burn some of the extra calories you are consuming.
  • Slow Down!  Sit down with you friends and family and enjoy each and every bite of the homemade dishes and goodies.   When you eat fast it will take longer for your body to register it is full and you may already be on your second plate.  Yikes!
  • Going Overboard?  Sit down, relax.  Don’t beat yourself up too much if you ate way more than you planned to.  Some of those dishes are super special and your aunt or grand mom made them just for you…thank goodness you get them only one time a year.
  • You be the Good Guy!  Plan and prepare a healthy dish to your function – that way you know when in doubt, have what you brought.
  • Where are you hanging out?  We all know that if you’re hanging out by the appetizers you’re probably going to eat the appetizers…hungry or not.  A lot of family and friends like to gather in the kitchen even when it’s not time to eat.  Chances are you’ll mindless eat if the food is right there at arms distance.
  • Check the Spread!  Look at what all is offered before you devour everything.  Balance the good with the not so good and make healthy choices fill most of your plate first.
  • Research your Recipes!  Can you switch out lowfat milk or use broth instead of all the butter on a side dish? Can you use applesauce instead of sugar for a dessert? Take off excess skin or visible fat on your meats?

At Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine, we want to make it easy for you to eat healthy this holiday season. As Atlanta’s premier healthy meal and lifestyle service, we provide everything from meal prep to convenient pickup/delivery to free nutrition coaching and support. All of this will have you looking and feeling great during the holidays.

Staying Away from Fad Diets

tape-403595_960_720
With all the focus on weight in our society, it isn’t surprising that millions of people fall prey to fad diets and bogus weight-loss products. Conflicting claims, testimonials and hype by so-called “experts” can confuse even the most informed consumers. The bottom line is simple: If a diet or product sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

There are no foods or pills that magically burn fat. No super foods will alter your genetic code. No products will miraculously melt fat while you watch TV or sleep. Some ingredients in supplements and herbal products can be dangerous and even deadly for some people.

Steer clear of any diet plans, pills and products that make the following claims:

Rapid Weight Loss

Slow, steady weight loss is more likely to last than dramatic weight changes. Healthy plans aim for a loss of no more than 1 to 2 pounds per week. If you lose weight quickly, you’ll lose muscle, bone and water. You also will be more likely to regain the pounds quickly.

Quantities and Limitations

Ditch diets that allow unlimited quantities of any food, such as grapefruit and cabbage soup. It’s boring to eat the same thing over and over and hard to stick with monotonous plans. Avoid any diet that eliminates or severely restricts entire food groups, such as carbohydrates. Even if you take a multivitamin, you’ll still miss some critical nutrients.

Specific Food Combinations

There is no evidence that combining certain foods or eating foods at specific times of day will help with weight loss. Eating the “wrong” combinations of food doesn’t cause them to turn to fat immediately or to produce toxins in your intestines, as some plans claim.

Rigid Menus

Life is already complicated enough. Limiting food choices or following rigid meal plans can be an overwhelming, distasteful task. With any new diet, always ask yourself: “Can I eat this way for the rest of my life?” If the answer is no, the plan is not for you.

No Need to Exercise

Regular physical activity is essential for good health and healthy weight management. The key to success is to find physical activities that you enjoy and then aim for 30 to 60 minutes of activity on most days of the week.

If you want to maintain a healthy weight, build muscle and lose fat, the best path is a lifelong combination of eating smarter and moving more.

They say “variety is the spice of life,” and at Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine, we agreed 100%. Fad diets that limit what you can eat are not sustainable. What is sustainable, though, is a comprehensive meal plan service that provides the variety of over 350 meals spanning 5 different menus as well as nutritional coaching to help give you the support you need to make healthy choices. Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine offers all of that and more.

Start the holiday season off right with our calorie and portion controlled meals that are prepared fresh every week and are nutritionally balanced by our team of Registered Dietitians.
