Q&A Wednesday

Q&A: How do you quit overeating around the holidays?

Happy Holidays!

Before I say anything else, I want to be very clear that NOTHING about my advice suggests depriving yourself. I’m a firm believer in indulging and enjoying every second of it!

But, I know that sometimes we fall into a pattern of eating mindlessly, and then we totally lose the enjoyment factor because we don’t even pay attention anymore! THEN we end up feeling bad because we ate too much AND we didn’t even enjoy it! That’s the worst!

So these are my best practices for making the most of your holiday meals without the guilt of overeating.


Over to you! Which of these do you employ? What would you add to my list?

    I love this!! The holidays are so overwhelming and it is crazy how out-of-shape our minds get. I am the only member of my family that is meat- and dairy-free so I spend the day before the holiday preparing my meal, making sure I make just enough to fill one plate and have a little bit of left overs only for the next day. The holiday season is a special time of year and much of the dishes we make we only make this time of year. I am totally guilty of eating about a dozen baked clams for an appetizer and not leaving room for my meal in the past, but they’re just so delicious!! Now I limit myself to one or two and pack two away in my leftovers. Limiting myself to one plate and making one container of leftovers seems to work best for me. Happy Holidays! xo
