EatSmart Fans Weigh in With TOP TIPS to Avoid Weight Gain During the Holidays

Everyone loves a giveaway and EatSmart fans are no exception. For this month’s giveaway, we asked the many participants interested in winning an EatSmart Precision Tracker Bathroom Scale to share with us their Best Tip For Staying Healthy During the Holidays. Responses were many but there definitely was a consensus among the entrants:

Say NO to Nothing and Yes to Moderation

Here are just a few great tips from our fans:

My best tip for staying healthy over the holidays is to not waste calories on things I can eat any other day of the year (like bread, potatoes, chocolate, etc.).  Instead, I use on calories on a small portion of the treats that only come around the holidays (pumpkin pie, coconut cake, gingerbread, etc.)–Melissa

Choose one or two holiday treats for the season. Only eat what you really, really want instead of indulging in all the cookies and treats.–Marge Bowman

Eat something healthy at home before going to any parties, so that you’re not tempted to go overboard once you get there.–Jill K

Moderation is the key for me. If I deny myself something that I’ve looked forward to all year long, I’ve learned from past experience, that it leads to feeling cheated and obsessing about not having it.  I allow myself a small amount of my favorite food and then make sure I ramp up on the veggies and fruits and keep up with my exercise routine. That’s what works for me now.–Kimberly Palermo

Watch the amounts you eat! There are great foods to be eaten at this time of year so just watch how much and leave off the things you can get any time of year!–Shirlene McGuire

I recommend filling up on vegetables and just having small portions of your very favorite treats (and savor those bites so you’ll appreciate them)!–Robin O

My best tip for staying healthy during the holidays – is don’t deprive yourself of everything. Allowing ONE cookie of your favorite type – while eating healthier entree etc can cause you to feel satisfaction while not wanting to rebound.–Valerie Simko

Following these tips, coupled with some daily exercise will make for a healthy, enjoyable holiday season.

One last tip from me—Enjoy and treasure these happy times spent with family and friends!
