Okay, let’s face it; the holidays can be a very difficult season to maneuver when you are trying to maintain the progress you’ve made in 2020. Getting through the whirlwind of treats can seem like a constant barrage of temptation to stray from your healthy eating goals. The holidays don’t have to be a relentless obstacle course requiring you to be battle-ready every moment, but they do require some preplanning and strategizing to make it safely through to 2021. Here are my top five healthy holiday tips:1. Eat OftenIt may seem logical to try “saving” your calories throughout the day before a large holiday meal. Unfortunately, this idea can backfire, leaving you ravenous and ready to eat everything in sight! Instead, try eating as you normally would, enjoying a high protein meal or snack throughout the day to help curb your pre-meal appetite.2. Stay HydratedMany times we mistakenly think we are hungry when really we are thirsty. Your body needs half your body weight in ounces of water (and unsweetened beverages) throughout the day.
