You have the power to make healthy food choices during the holidays

Did you know that the average person who experiences weight gain between Thanksgiving and New Years adds 10 to 20 lbs. over a ten year period? But there is good news according to Tom O’Connor, owner of Market Fresh Fruit in Seattle, Washington. Through exercise and a balanced diet that includes an abundance of fruits and vegetables, this can help keep the extra weight off.

“Eating more fruits and vegetables not only adds major disease-fighting benefits, but also helps with weight management,” said O’Connor, who offers fresh fruit delivery to offices in the Seattle area. “Our brains also function better when we eat nutrient-rich foods. Remember, you have the power to make healthy food choices during the holidays.”

"If you plan ahead, there are many strategies that can help you strike a balance between following a healthy diet and being part of the fun and celebrations," said nutritionist Heidi Scarsella, RD, CSO, LDN, in an article from the Duke Health website. Scarsella warned not to fill up a plate with just high calorie food items. “Have a little of everything,” she said. “But be sure to include lots of fruits and vegetables.”
