Avoid Post Holiday Blues

The holidays are wonderful times to enjoy family, great friends and good food.

Here are a few tips to avoid post-holiday “what did the scale say?” blues!

1. Use a smaller plate than the traditional 11 inch.
2. Get everything you like but a smaller portion.
3. Sit beside someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, in order to talk more and eat less during the meal.
4. Let the fork rest on the plate for a few minutes between bites.

With a little planning and discipline you can avoid extra pounds this season.

Wishing you and your family a safe, happy and healthy holiday.
