Sigh... Thanksgiving... a day wildly recognized for over indulging at the dinner table with your loved ones. Having grown up in a culture surrounded by a "Bigger is Better," mentality, it's only natural for Americans everywhere to have this eating habit-especially on this holiday! But I'm going to let you in on a couple little tips to help break through the trend this year.
Why? Because as tasty as your meal may be, you ‘re going to regret it an hour later, the next day, and the day after that! Once you begin binge eating you'll get that mentality in your head that "one more sugar cookie won't hurt anything" even though it may have been your sixth cookie. But you'll remind yourself that it's okay, because it's the holiday season. And then sure enough, you've got high cholesterol, high blood sugar, and maybe even gained a few pounds. Holiday binge eating is a dangerous, very real thing. But as said before, the problem is it's such a cultural norm. People do their best to take every opportunity imaginable to enjoy those sweets, and cocoa's because they are only seasonal treats. Allow me to help you get through this holiday season with a couple quick tips to both help your health and help you enjoy the season's gifts.
You'll be tempted by those rolls... I know, I get it. But remember to pace yourself and listen to your body. In the reality of things, all of these seasonal foods can be enjoyed throughout the year- just don't start hanging up your Christmas lights until AFTER Thanksgiving! (Just kidding, live your best life!)
