The turkey is waving its drumsticks at you and the gravy and mashed potatoes and pies and homemade rolls are enticing you to eat them. Yes, it’s the holiday season and all your favorite foods are teasing you.
Well, it is okay to eat them all but the trick is to eat in moderation and start with a smaller plate. Fill your plate with protein foods first and then two tablespoons of carbohydrate based side. By doing this, you will fill up faster.
Slow down and savor each scrumptious mouthful with the company of your family and friends. If you’re going to consume a high amount of carbs during a meal, simply eat fewer carbs during the days before and after. Eating is a social function as well as needed sustenance. We often must relearn our lifelong eating habits. Allow your brain time to catch up with your stomach rumblings.
And watch the drinks for added calories. LiveLight encourages you to embrace the festive times of your life without guilt, just watch the quantity and you will stay on track with your weight loss goals.
It’s going to be a beautiful day, so take a walk with your family. Save the turkey and ham to enjoy as leftovers for next week.
