Erena DiGonis(Licensed Social Worker and Certified Health Coach)answered(6/14/2012)Great question! Here are my top 3 tips that I give to clients:
1) End the hunger games now. Deprivation leads to overeating. Eat regular meals and snacks.
2) 2. Eat mindfully. Be present with what you are eating, taste and savor every bite. In Scuba training you learn to Stop, Breathe, Think and then Act!
3) 4. Plan fun activities that are NOT centered around food. We are a foodcentric culture, be creative and try something that is fun and no food related!
Keep us posted!
Cori D. Cohen, RD(Registered Dietitian)answered(8/28/2012)Alcohol is a major source of calories during the holiday season. If you want to enjoy a holiday party cocktail pass on the cranberry and orange juice and opt for less sugary mixers like club soda. If you are a wine drinker make a spritzer instead of having a full glass of wine. To make a wine spritzer simply halve the amount of wine (4 oz), add club soda, and garnish with citrus fruit like lemons, limes, or sliced oranges. This will cut calories and sugar that could easily add up and lead to holiday season weight gain!
