Make Sure You Eat! – Don’t go all day without eating in hopes to be able to enjoy bigger helpings of the “good stuff”. Make sure you eat small meals throughout the day so you stay balanced; but remember portion control.

Skip the Gravy and Fatty Dressings – You can still enjoy all that the holiday dinners have to offer while making healthy choices. Try cutting down calories by avoiding the gravy and fatty dressings.

Fill Your Plate With Veggies – Load up on the vegetables. Instead of getting double servings of the infamous stuffing, have extra vegetables. Your waist line will thank you for it later.

Drink Water – Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day. This will help you not feel as hungry later.

Limit Alcohol Consumption – Sure a drink or two isn’t all that bad. Just make sure you drink plenty of water in between. Some alcohol contains a lot of calories; especially the indulgent mixed drinks.

Add Spices To Your Food – Spicy food helps boost your metabolism. Try adding some red pepper flakes or hot sauce to your food.
