Being FIT & Healthy while you FEAST!
3) Moderation- That is such a tough word during a season when everything is presented to you so beautifully and so often. The stores are full of new Fall and Christmas treats! The office co-workers begin to bring in all their favorite treats to show you how much they love you (Sure...Thanks a lot ;-)
Perhaps you are in a leadership position and now every gift is a food during this special season of giving Thanks and Celebrating. Planning ahead helps you moderate but the best way to moderate is to go ahead and plan to donate and re-gift those foodie presents. Say "yes" to some and "No" to others. When you say "yes" make sure you share it! Never bring a whole pie home to yourself. Instead plan to bring that desert to a dinner party or to your family to split. Sometimes those food gifts can be frozen and enjoyed at another time. Freezing food gifts if you can is such a great idea because the temptation is no longer readily available to eat when it comes 10pm!! Moderation Tips also include- On slice, one serving, smaller dining plates, drink water before/during your meals, eat a healthy balanced meal prior to a party where there is unhealthy choices that way you don't eat too much of the unhealthy stuff.
