Considering no holiday get-together is complete without something to snack on, it is important to remember to keep the intake to a limit. Every holiday, there always seems to be an abundance of good things to eat, so it is no wonder people have a problem not consuming too much, as well as keeping the weight off. Health professionals are trying to save some overindulgers this holiday from having to loosen their belt buckles by providing some healthy tips.
One way to help keep from feeling 'eater's remorse' is to stick to one plate per meal time. Going back for seconds and thirds is not always the wisest decision, even if you do think there is room in your stomach. Another way to burn some of the energy off from all of the calorie intake this season is to get active. Going on a family hike or playing a pickup game of basketball will help get the heart rate up and the blood pumping.
So to prevent the 'jiggle' during these upcoming months, remember to take it slow, and try not to overdo it.
