emoticon Drink water.

Holiday beverages, from eggnog to champagne abound! But they also add empty calories to your diet. Stay hydrated by drinking water all day. At the party, alternate water with other beverages.

emoticon Rest Up.

emoticon Don't skimp on sleep during the holidays—you'll only feel stressed out and run down. Plan your days so you can check off your to-do list and still make it to bed for 8 hours of shut eye.

emoticon Make healthy substitutions.

Try applesauce in place of oil, two egg whites instead of one egg, and skim milk in place of regular milk when baking. Look for ways to cut sugar and use whole grains too.

You don't have to stay to the end of every party or attend every gathering. Look at your list of events and obligations and see
where you can cut back on time, energy, and money.

Make just one trip to the food table, and fill only a salad-sized plate with your favorites. This helps keeps portions under control.

Cut calories by cutting portion sizes. Cut pies into 10 slices(not 6-8). Cut brownies and cakes into bite-sized pieces; and bake smaller cookies and mini muffins.

Just because everyone is eating does not mean that you have to. Choosing smaller portions shouldn’t offend a host, but sometimes it may be necessary to decline.

emoticon Shop when full!

Shopping on an empty stomach can lead to overeating on the unhealthy food court fare. Also stash some emergency healthy snacks in your car or purse. Try nuts, whole grain crackers, and dried fruit.

emoticon Sharing Sparks' Ideas on how to Stay on Track this Holiday Season!

Please feel free to note if you make any special healthy dishes for your gatherings!

12/5- emoticon Try healthier recipes!

When treats are in the house, more of the dessert usually ends up in your belly than in your guests. So keep some low fat, low-calorie recipes and foods on hand.

*I always try to keep the veggie trays filled at our gatherings--crunching on fresh veggies is delicious, healthy and can help curb that temptation to take more than 1 cookie, etc., at times. I just focus on eating in moderation the best I can and enjoying the holiday foods as well.
