Nutrition Focus: How Overeating During the Holidays Affects Your Waistline, Watchung, New Jersey

More is a common word we hear during the holiday season, and most people are guilty of overindulging in their favorite sweet treats. While it’s wonderful to enjoy delicious food, it’s smart to focus on nutrition and how what you eat affects your diet and waistline. The professional nutritionists and weight loss specialists at NutriMost Watchung, based in New Jersey, understand just how tricky it can be to get through the season healthily.

It’s not impossible, especially when you consider the effects that overeating can have on your diet. Here are some things to remember during the season:

  • Drinking Your Calories: During holiday parties and family gatherings, drinks run the gamut from wines and martinis to hot chocolates and frothy mochas. These can quickly add up—nutrition panels show that many contain hundreds of calories per serving—so drink them sparingly. Instead, sip water throughout your meal, and if you are planning to enjoy a “dessert” beverage, factor that into your calorie intake throughout the day so that you don’t go overboard later.
  • nutritionIndulging In Dessert: ‘Tis the season to indulge, but often those indulgences are to blame for the extra pounds we desperately try to shed in the new year. Mix up your desserts, so you aren’t eating pies, cookies, and baked goods every night of the week. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a block or two of dark chocolate (it’s a powerhouse of nutrition, too), or enjoy a bowl of fruit topped with some light whipped cream.
  • Exploring The Buffet: Whether you’re at a restaurant or a party, chances are you’ll encounter a buffet spread at some point during the season. Resist the urge to go back for seconds and thirds, and don’t use it as an excuse to heap your plate with food—it’s so easy to overeat in this environment. Instead, eat slowly, drink water throughout, and focus on healthy proteins and vegetables. Keep fried appetizers and similarly high-calorie treats to a minimum.

You don’t have to suffer the consequences of adding a few extra sweets to your diet during the holiday season. By limiting your indulgences and practicing healthy eating habits overall, you can find the right balance and still enjoy your favorite foods.
