EAT BREAKFAST so that you’re not starving by the time you get to the main event.
Don’t eat cheese…save the space for foods that are special to this day 🙂
Try to limit your alcohol intake to 2 glasses…
If BREAD is being served, don’t eat it unless its some of the
best bread EVER.
Add lots of GREEN VEGETABLES, salad to your plate…
SO MANY CHOICES — Take SUPER small amounts of each dish — like SAMPLE SIZES to start because you’ll probably want to go back for just your favorites.
Limit the gravy to 1 tablespoon.
EAT SLOWLY…It takes10-20 min for the stomach to tell the brain that it’s full.
DESSERT: eat the ones that are special to this day–take a SLIVER of a piece of pie and a tablespoon of ice cream instead of a small plateful or opt out!
Try not to take home LEFTOVERS. This is where the weight gain really happens. One day of a 3000 calorie meal, okay. But 2-3 days of it = tight pants.
DON’T USE THE HOLIDAY AS AN EXCUSE to say F-it to your goals of living a healthy lifestyle. Get back into the routine of eating healthy and exercising on Monday 🙂
