Dieting During the Holidays- Make a Game Plan
Think about what you’re going to eat before the big day arrives and plan for healthy options and splurges. If you can’t resist a huge slice of pumpkin pie, what will you cut back on to compensate for it? What will your plate look like? What will leave you feeling satisfied? If you’re not preparing the Thanksgiving meal yourself, ask your host if it would be all right to bring a dish that meets your dietary needs. Consider bringing a sugar-free or low-carb dessert. Or talk to a fellow dieter before Thanksgiving. Plan to give each other moral support throughout the meal.
