Tips for Mindful Eating During the Holidays


Gaining excessive weight during the holidays does not have to leave you nervous. It can become difficult to avoid overindulging in food at work parties, dinners, holiday snacks, and even while at family gatherings. 




Guess what? It is possible for you to stay on top of your cravings during the holiday season and all year round with these helpful tips!


Tip #1: Drink Water

Drink water as soon as you wake up and throughout the day. Water is also a great appetite suppressant. The more water you drink the fuller you will feel and the less you will crave.

Tip #2: Eat breakfast

You may have heard that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. You can make your breakfast one of the filling meals of the day, by not just snacking on an apple or banana. Add a little variety depending on your lifestyle. For example, if you make a smoothie to-go have it will some granola, nuts, or mixed fruits. Love boiled eggs? Then take a few with you on the go.

Tip #3: Pack Your Own Healthy Snacks

Whenever you are running errands or you are just home and your sweet tooth is out of control, it’s good to have a healthy snack stash. Veggie chips, rice cakes, Smart Pop Pop Corn, and even dark chocolate are all healthy snacks that you can eat in moderation. So, go head-on and get your carefree snack on!

Tip #4: Eat Slowly  

Take your time eating. Consuming your food too fast makes your body will not realize it’s full. When you eat quickly it can result in your overeating and weight gain.

Tip #5: Remember Your Why

Remember why you chose to embark on a healthy lifestyle in the beginning. The holidays will come, and they will go. Keep in mind that it takes longer to lose weight than it does to gain it. The way you think about and view your lifestyle matters. You do not have to let your holiday goals go in vain.

Tip #6 Herbal Teas Help

There are many types of herbal teas to choose from. Dessert, caffeinated, and even stress relief teas can all help you kick many of your sugar cravings. Herbal teas can also help detox your liver and kidneys no matter if you drink alcohol or not.
