Thanksgiving is quickly approaching!  Most families have a traditional holiday feast, with turkey, potatoes and pies galore.  This year indulge in moderation, and begin your new year on track to a healthier you!  Consider these simple suggestions when indulging this holiday season.

 STAY HYDRATED- Drink your water!  The average adult should drink 1/2-1 oz. of water per pound of body weight per day.  For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should be drinking 100-200 ounces/day.  A hydrated body has LESS hunger and cravings and MORE efficient metabolism and digestive function. It’s simple, and it works!  

 PRIORITIZE YOUR PLATE- Most holiday gatherings include a plethora of food options.  Ignore the so so, and stick to your favorites.  Don’t waste calories on food you don’t love, make those calories count!

 GET MOVING- Increased calorie intake over the holidays is bound to happen, compensate with increased physical activity and combat the aftermath with something simple, a family walk, or a football game, just get moving!

 FOCUS ON SOCIALIZING- Parties and get togethers aren’t all about food. Make social goals, it’ll preoccupy your mind and take it off all that food!

 CONTROL THE TEMPTATION - Sweets and treats come hand in hand with the holidays.  Control the temptation that surround you, when you make a sweet treat keep a small portion for your family and deliver the rest to friends and neighbors.  Tis the season, share memories, laughs and share your calories too!
