and the last and final Healthy Holiday Tip to keep you rockin through this time of year- #9:
Holidays can mean lots of parties. If you know you have a party to attend to that evening, watch your food intake during the day. Now I am not saying skip meals! ALWAYS eat breakfast!! Eating breakfast makes you less vulnerable to cravings and hunger that will sneak up on you later in the day. Have a heartier breakfast and keep lunch on the light side and choose smaller snacks in between. Snack frequently but lightly during the day to allot yourself a few more calories at the party because you know it's bound to happen.
