Navigate Holiday Parties without packing on the LBS this season!

How to navigate holiday parties without packing on the 10 plus pounds 
the average American gains between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. 

PLUS a Holiday Tips to Stay Fit Video from Stroller Moms! 
  • Treat the holiday or the party as one event – not lasting 2 days, a week, or a holiday season! 3500 calories = 1 lb. of fat, it is unlikely you will over consume that many calories at one event, it is the , it is the continual addition of extra calories the day after and week after, which is why it is important to watch what and how much you choose at the many holiday parties you attend.
    • Allow yourself small portions of what you want, at that meal/party.  Small indulgences are not what packs on the pounds.  Use small cocktail size plate for appetizers and limit yourself to one plate.
    • Appetizer party? Try to go for fruit and veggie trays, lean meat options – like chicken skewers, few squares of cheese.  Watch out for dips, sauces, and anything fried, crunchy, or crispy.
    • Dinner party? Follow MYPLATE.gov Make half your plate fruits, veggies, and salad.  The other half add 1 scoop of the starch (mashed potatoes, rice, sweet potatoes) and the rest of the plate should be your lean protein (Roast turkey, filet mignon, baked ham, tofu, etc.)
    • Contribute to the food table. This way you can ensure that there is an item or two you can eat without guilt or worry. Make a salad, bring fresh cut fruit, make a “lightened up” version of your favorite holiday side dish or appetizer.
  • Plan ahead!
    • If you know you are going to a party, make sure you do NOT go famished! If you are hungry, you will be more lax in your choices and less likely to be mindful of portions.
    • Make sure you stick to your normal eating schedule: ideally, eating breakfast and balanced snacks every 3-4 hours in the day to keep your metabolism up leading into the party.
    • Since party snacks tend to be carbohydrate heavy, save your carbs for the party, and stick to lean protein, fruits, and veggies for your snacks before the party.
  • HYDRATE! Did you know that often times when you are hungry, you actually may just be thirsty? Make sure to keep your water intake up during the holiday season to minimize unneeded calories, especially on the party days when your sodium intake will most likely be higher since you are eating out.
  • Watch out for cocktails and/or beverages with calories!
    • Liquid calories add up quickly. Follow the 2 drink rule at parties and drink water in between cocktails.
    • Watch out for mixers! Sugary mixers can double your cocktail calories.  For example: stick to vodka with club soda and a splash of juice instead of a vodka and cranberry and save over 120 calories.  Or use diet soda, diet tonic, or bring crystal light to-go packets with you.
