“If there’s a Christmas cookie you love and it’s disappearing at an alarming rate, by all means throw some ‘bows and snag one for yourself!”
With Thanksgiving around the corner, I decided it’s about time to write a healthy holiday eating post. While it can be a daunting time of year for well-intentioned dieters, it’s not unmanageable. You just have to have a game plan!
When there’s still leftover Halloween candy, when the turkey stuffing’s placed within arm’s reach, when your favorite Christmas cookies seem to be breeding – it can be so overwhelming.
I actually had a conversation about this with my patients earlier today. They mentioned some of the hurdles they face, and asked for advice on how to overcome them. Everyone has different healthy holiday eating barriers depending on the holidays they celebrate, their traditions, and the people around them. So I’ll try to make this list as comprehensive as I can. If I miss anything feel free to ask in the comments below, or be sure to make your own game plan before the issue arrives.
