Survival Tips for Healthy Eating at the Holidays Part 2

Hello again!  I hope you all enjoyed the previous tips from earlier this week.  Here are the last 5 tips for your consumption.

Thanksgiving Meal 2

5) Portion Control
More food equals more fat!  If you like it enough for a second helping, consider saving it as a leftover instead for a future meal.

4) SLEEP!
Disruptions in sleep will cause cortisol spikes, trading hours of sleep for pounds on the scale.

3) Take a walk after eating.
Ignore the desire to nap after a meal.  Give your body the signal to burn the food as fuel, not store it as fat.  Even a mild walk is enough.

2) Mixed glycemic approach to eating.
Back off on the stuffing and deserts.  Mix proteins, fats, and carbs to give your blood sugar a more controlled release and avoid the sugar crash later.

1) Make it a special occasion, not a lifestyle.  A special holiday meal is a great thing, but the pounds really pile on when that eating habit is maintained over a month or more.  Remember, it’s only special in moderation.

I hope that you all have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving!

To Your Health!

Dr. Harvey
