Rob Hill Presents: How to Enjoy Your Christmas to the Fullest—and Not Put on the Pounds🎅🏼🎄

By: Rob Hill

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is a week to indulge in food, drink, and soirees. But that doesn’t mean you need to watch your waistline grow.

While on a normal day, the average person consumes 2,000-3,000 calories, during the Christmas holiday that can go to 4,500 to 5,500 calories. But it doesn’t have to be that way. First, you don’t haveto stop eating what you like—just eat less of it. For instance, have your slice of pumpkin pie but not two, and skip the ice cream. Instead of using caramels, chocolates, and sweets as dessert toppings, use honey, fruit, and cinnamon.

When it comes to sauces—go light! You may not be able to control what’s being served at a holiday party, but you can make the turkey, roast beef, mashed potatoes, steaks, and stuffing much healthier by being mindful of the amount of sauce or gravy you use.

To be sure, avoid drinking too much alcohol. Sure, have a few glasses of wine or champagne, but stay away from heavy, calorie-laden concoctions like eggnog, White Russians or Bourbon Milk Punch’s. Also, when drinking alcohol have a glass of water for every drink, it will make you drink—and eat—less.

Finally, learn to say no. We all love pigs in a blanket, meatballs, and pot stickers. But instead of reaching for these devilish treats, grab a handful of carrots, peanuts, or broccoli. And don’t forget to take a brisk 15-20 walk in between parties.
