Stay Fit During the Holidays: 4 Seasonal Nutrition Tips, Watchung, New Jersey

Holidays are hard for those struggling with weight control or weight loss. Lots of home-cooked and comfort foods that only make an appearance once a year can tempt you to break from your eating plan. Watching relatives and friends indulge can make it even harder to eat in moderation. For help staying the course this holiday season, consider a fat loss system like NutriMost Watchung, in central Jersey. The weight loss specialists offer the following tips to practice good nutrition this holiday season.

4 Tips For Staying Healthy During The Holiday Season

1. Eat

This one may seem counter-intuitive, but it’s important. Do not skip meals as a way of saving calories for holidays feasts. Make sure you eat breakfast before Thanksgiving dinner, for example. Give your stomach something to chew on so that you are not starving when faced with a table full of delicious food. Your metabolism will do better if it’s not overworked.

nutrition2. Choose Healthy

Easier said than done, but make a commitment to at least start healthy. Fill your plate with vegetables; go for fiber if you can; and fill up on nutritional foods. You can always indulge a little when it comes time for dessert. 

3. Beat The Buffet

Holidays often serve buffet-style foods, which can pose problems for your diet and nutrition. Large portions are all too easy to accumulate when going back for second or third portions. Avoid overeating by choosing a small plate and filling it with healthy, fibrous options.

4. Celebrate

Remember, this is a holiday! Although an enticing part of the celebration is food, the other part is spending time with the people you love. Use conversation and socializing as an excuse to eat more slowly, and take a break between dinner and dessert.


The holidays are difficult for everyone to keep on track, but weight loss doesn’t have to take a hit. Considering the common weight gain during the holidays, make weight control your goal for November and December. You can resume a weight loss regime during the winter months, with plenty of support from NutriMost Watchung.
