Holiday Eating Challenges

Just a quick post about the Challenges of Holiday Eating.  We all end up in January with extra pounds, well most of us anyway!  And I am never happy to see them on my hips and other places.  So this year I am going to follow a few simple rules when it comes to Holiday Eating.  Hope they will help you maintain a healthy relationship with food throughout the holidays!

Give the Gift of Health

1.  I will eat small meals throughout the day, keeping my energy level up and my craving for sweets on impulse down to a minimum.  Small meals will keep my protein and carbohydrate levels in balance, so I can resist those plates of sweet calories that float through the the day tempting me! Of course I will take my Shaklee Supplements!

2.  I will stay hydrated. Drinking half of my weight in ounces of water each day will help me stay hydrated, keeping my body healthy, brain sharp and stomach full feeling.  Often when we reach for something to eat it is because we are de-hydrated and need water.  So hop on the scale and look at your weight.  Take half of that figure and drink that in ounces each day.  So if you weight 150 pounds, you will need to sip on 75 ounces of water throughout the day.  Not tea, not coffee, not sodas, but filtered water!   Don’t try to drink it all at once.  It is to be sipped throughout the day.

3.  I will eat a treat each day, thereby avoiding the possibility of eating a whole cake or platter of cookies because I have not eaten treats for several days.  I will admit that I love, LOVE Chocolate and will be amiss if I don’t try to reign-in the desire to eat a whole platter of brownies at a party!  So eating a treat each day is the way to control the weight!

4.  I will not give up on myself if I make one error and eat too much one time.  But I will not let that be an excuse for eating too much every day.  Prevention is the way to stay healthy and I don’t plan on being ill.  I plan on staying healthy for many, many years to come.

So, what is your plan to make it through the endless food detours that are in our near future?  We have another month or more of food opportunities to sabotage our healthy weight goals and we really need to plan our way through rather than Eat our way through the next month!  Stay Well!  And Happy Holiday Eating!
