3 Healthy Tips For Your Holiday Party

By Virginia Laird

It is the season for holiday parties to fill your nights and weekends. This also means it is time to get serious about managing your health while surrounded by far too many unhealthy food selections. Health and wellness experts have put together a list of a few tips to help you make healthier choices while enjoying your holiday festivities. These tips include: 

  • Make only one trip to the buffet
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Reduce your sugar consumption

Make Only One Trip to the Buffet

With the never-ending beauty of the buffet, it can be tempting to load up more than once. Health and wellness experts suggest that those who are serious about maintaining good health throughout the holidays should make it a habit to only visit the buffet once. This is a great way to manage your calorie consumption. Another tip to prevent you from heading back in for round two is to park yourself far from the buffet table. Sitting near the buffet, hearing everyone rave about how delicious some of the food is, can make it too difficult for you to avoid going back for more.

Drink Plenty of Water

Research suggests that staying properly hydrated is a great way to avoid cravings. When you are properly hydrated, the body has a way of feeling full. Since water is a zero calorie beverage, it is wise to use it as a tool to help you avoid overeating. Health and wellness experts recommend you drink at least half of your body weight in ounces each day to maintain proper hydration. If you are not one who loves water, it may be wise to consider adding some fruit to your drink to make it more appealing to your taste buds.

Reduce Your Sugar Consumption

During the holiday season it can be a struggle to reduce your sugar consumption. However, health and wellness experts advise this is a great way to help manage and maintain a variety of health-related issues. For those who need sugar to survive, it is recommended that you limit your consumption to one treat each week. This can help you get on a path of reducing your consumption without completely getting rid of sugar during the holidays.

Now, as you plan your party, you are prepared to keep your health a priority and still enjoy the food and friends.
