Healthy Holiday Eating

Posted by Dr. Susan on December 10, 2005

It’s that time of year again–the holidays have arrived and unhealthy food is everywhere!! You’re probably thinking “I’ll start my diet in January…that’s my New Year’s resolution”. But, guess what that’s not the way to go!! Your BIG DIET will hang over your head until January making you feel like you’d better eat every single fattening thing you can find until then. This is not only unhealthy, it won’t work!! Instead, you’ll feel guilty as you stuff your face now, and then in January, you’ll deprive yourself to try and take away that guilt. Here’s a better idea–forget the dieting!! Instead, don’t deprive yourself of holiday goodies, just eat a little bit of everything instead of tons of it. If you want more, take home a doggy bag and have it the next day. The key is to NOT feel deprived now, in January or ever. Love your body–don’t stuff it or starve it. Happy holidays
