Avoid Deprivation Disaster

Posted 12/24/2012 | By HealthCorps

Don’t try to abstain from your guilty pleasures during the holidays! Learning how to balance your favorite foods will help you maintain your weight without feeling cheated. The key is portions: reduce your serving size of calorie-dense foods and fill your plate with high fiber fruits, veggies, beans and whole grains.
Enjoy a tempting food this week by planning ahead and keeping portions small. You can easily mix vegetables in with your favorite entree, start your meal with a large salad or add fruit to a bite or two of your favorite dessert. Take time this Monday to brainstorm solutions for your next party or get together
