The holidays are coming up and you may think to yourself that all that hard work and working out everyday was for nothing because you want to pig out on the holidays. But fear not, you do not have to throw months of hard work away. Just remember these nine guilt free ways to enjoy your holidays and the meals that come with them.

Nine Guilt Free Ways to Enjoy Holiday Meals –

1) Ensure at least one healthy choice at potlucks by contributing a dish.  Throw a few carrots or some fruit on your plate!

2) Scan the dinner table before choosing what to eat. Remember, you don’t need to try everything.

3) Stick to one or two servings, but fill at least half your plate with veggies and whole grain dishes.

4) Refrain from taking second helpings, unless it is a vegetable dish.

5) Station yourself away from the buffet table.

6) Resist the urge to completely deprive yourself. Eat dessert, but do so in little amounts.

7) Do not worry about how much you ate. Instead, acknowledge when you were successful.

8) Consider ways to improve your food selections at future events.

9) If you happen to eat more then you planned, follow your healthy routine the next day.
