The holidays are difficult not just for people who are trying to shed pounds, but also for those who want to maintain their weight.
“Even if you only gain a few pounds during the holidays, you may not be able to lose that weight easily,” says Stephen Nagy, MD, internal medicine physician at Saint Francis Clinic Poplar Bluff. “Over the years, the extra weight can add up.”
Here are tips to keep from overeating:
- Eat healthy food before arriving at gatherings so you are not very hungry.
- Choose a small plate and make sure foods are not touching each other, so you do not overfill it.
- If you want to indulge, eat only foods you really like. Take a pass on foods that are not your favorite.
