This beautiful festive time of the year is back! In addition to the well-deserved break and pleasant get-togethers with family and friends, many fear this time of year, which is often synonymous with weight gain. Here are a few tips to avoid taking in too many calories:

Avoid cravings! Do not skip meals for a more hearty meal; take a snack before you go. You will be less hungry and less tempted to throw yourself into appetizers or accept a second plate.

Include fruits and vegetables! Prepare raw veggies or homemade salsas. They are less caloric than appetizers such as fried food, puff pastries, pâtés, gravies, or rich and sweet desserts. Fill a part of the plate with vegetables or salad. For dessert, take pieces of fruit to accompany your sweets.

Enjoy and socialize! You have all the time, so chat and enjoy the moment, the company. Eating slowly and enjoying every bite will help reduce your consumption. A lot of the food served comes back only once a year, so take advantage!

Rapid intake of calories! The holiday season is often associated with alcohol consumption. Keep in mind that 1 drink (150 ml of wine, 1 bottle of beer or 1½ oz of spirits) contains between 100 and 150 kcal. Cocktails are often more caloric because of the juice or sweet liquor added. Enjoy each sip and alternate with glasses of water or sparkling water.

Be active! Nothing is better to burn extra calories and also have fun. Dance. Take the opportunity to go out and play with children, skiing, skating, snowshoeing, walking, etc.

Enjoy these beautiful moments with those who surround you and especially don’t sabotage your holiday time with feelings of guilt about your diet. Instead, remember that moderation tastes much better!

Happy holiday season!
