Making Healthy Diet Decisions During the Holidays

Holiday Party Dieting Tips

Before you go:

  • Make a plan: is this a single night of indulgence OR are you having a single treat?
  • Bring something healthy to share!
  • Don’t leave the house hungry: have a snack with protein before going- stable blood sugar will make it easier to stick to your plan

At the party:

  • Eat protein, fiber, and fat BEFORE indulging in sweets and carbohydrates
  • Continue to drink water throughout the party
  • If you do indulge: ENJOY EVERY BITE (we mean it), once the enjoyment level goes down, you know it is time to stop!
