Tips To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain


We all know that the holidays are a time for indulgence. And while it's fun to be able to eat whatever you want and not worry about the consequences, it can be hard to stay on track with your healthy eating plan when the world suddenly becomes your oyster (so to speak). But there are steps you can take now before the festivities begin to avoid holiday weight gain—and they're more straightforward than you think!

Watch your portions and make intelligent choices.

If you eat smaller portions, it's easier to avoid weight gain. Also, ensure that the food you eat is healthy and nutritious.

  • Don't go to parties hungry: You're more likely to overeat if you eat on an empty stomach.
  • Don't fill up on bread, chips, and crackers: Overeating of these low-nutrient foods can cause some people to feel full without consuming many calories and may leave little room for healthier options like fruits and vegetables.

Eat Before Going To Party

You are eating a healthy meal before a party can help you avoid overeating at the event. This will keep your blood sugar in check and prevent the inevitable hangover accompanying overindulgence, especially on holiday booze.

And if you’re going to a barbeque, make sure you eat something before heading there too! You don't want to be hungry and eat way more than your body needs or wants. If this happens, walking around being uncomfortable is likely—and no one wants that.

Don't skip exercising.

Don't skip exercising.

Exercising is a great way to keep your stress levels down, stay in shape and help you sleep better. Even if you don't have time to go to the gym or run every day, try getting out for at least one walk a day with your family or friends.


Holiday weight gain is inevitable. It's a fact of life. However, you can avoid it by following these tips. Just remember that it's not just about the food you eat this holiday season; what matters more are the choices you make throughout the year regarding diet and exercise!
