To Eat Or Not To Eat

Today is Thanksgiving. How will you spend it? Most of the people I spoke to this week told me of spending time with their families and sitting down to a traditional holiday meal.

When my clients ask me how they should eat in times like this I tell them that these days are the reasons that they are good all year. My usual answer is that if you’re strict all year with your nutrition goals then on times like vacations, birthdays (yours, not everyone you know) and holidays they can then let loose.

On the other hand if you want to lose weight but all you do is play at your goals while you watch the scale go up and down. Then what makes it alright to eat on “special” occasions?

So if you have done well, enjoy all the trimmings that are offered, of course within reason.

If this has been a year of challenged focus? Put the fork down and enjoy the social aspects of the day. There are plenty. The good news is that you have a few weeks to get right with your goals before the annual Christmas dinner.

And if not, then I’ll see you on January 1st as we discuss getting rid of those “holiday” pounds.
