Throughout the holiday season, people head from one festive gathering to another, enjoying delicious food and delectable drinks along the way. While this is fun and enjoyable for a short period of time, it can easily lead to overeating and weight gain that can have long-term impacts on a person's appearance and health.
People in Newport Beach and throughout Orange County will surely be enjoying the holiday season to the fullest this year, and renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati wants to help them avoid common pitfalls that can lead to overeating. These easy-to-implement tips won't stop people from having an enjoyable time, and they will allow people to feel good about themselves long after the holiday season has come and gone.
How Can People Avoid Overeating and Gaining Weight Over the Holidays?
Be cautious when entering the buffet line. Buffets are filled with plenty of options and it's easy to choose portions that are too large. Choose lean meats and veggies from the buffet and avoid fattening dishes if possible.
Buy a dessert at the store rather than baking your own treats at home. This helps prevent the temptation of taste-testing your own creations prior to the party. This tip not only helps preserve your waistline, but it also helps you save time during this busy season.
Drink alcohol in moderation. This is beneficial for your health and also safer for you. Avoid eggnog this year, as it is high in calories. Wine has a lot of sugar, so you should minimize how much you drink. If you want to drink an alcoholic beverage, choose one with tequila because it will not impact your insulin as much as other alcoholic drinks.
If you accidentally eat too much at a party, choose to amp up your exercise routine that week in order to burn off the extra calories.
Have a healthy and filling snack before you go to any holiday party so that you don't arrive hungry and accidentally overeat.
Eat your veggies at every meal, as they will give you the nutrients you need in order to burn energy and stay healthy.
