Most people will indulge at least a few times, but the nature of these indulgences and their frequency are what will determine whether you’ll be starting the new year with a weight loss resolution.
Let’s go over a few of the top holiday season eating tips that you should remember so that you don’t see the weight gain most people do once Christmas wraps up.
Don’t Eat Standing
The first quick tip to remember with regards to holiday eating is that you should avoid eating while standing up. If you’re nibbling on food here and there, it’s going to really add up over time and in most cases, people won’t even realize that they’re actually eating.
It’s far too easy to stand there and snack while having a discussion with someone, so make it a general rule this holiday season that you can only eat if you’re sitting down at a table.
This will go a long way towards preventing mindless eating.
