Keeping Your Diet in Check During Christmas

With Christmas around the corner it’s the perfect time—and excuse—for everyone to indulge, or overindulge!

The key is moderation. You should, of course, allow yourself a treat or two. But, you’ll want to cut back where you can (or try power-walking, playing some active games between your meals) to keep the calories from creating a permanent home on your hips.

Here’s a few tips to keep you in check for Christmas.

Go Easy on Gravy

Let yourself enjoy the gravy by suggesting you have your gravy on the side? This way you can dip into its deliciousness as needed without overdoing it.

Cut Down on Butter and Creams

Sure, everything tastes better with butter! We know this. But, you can swap out just a few ingredients (like butter or cream) in classic recipes like green-bean casserole or holiday standbys like butternut squash with great, alternative recipes that cut the fat and calories to keep you on track.

Eat Them Leafy Greens

They are useful in reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease since they are low in fat, high in dietary fiber, and rich in folic acid, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium, as well as containing a host of phytochemicals, such as lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene.

That being said, make sure you should enjoy your Christmas food.
