Healthy eating after the holidays: how to reboot good habits.

Yes, we know it’s hard… but we need to still fit into our old pants when things go back to normal (unless you have our streeeetchy Alana leggings), lol.

Here’s some quick tips!:

Portion control sizes are your best friend

Whenever possible, buy pre-portioned or individually wrapped items. Got an item in your pantry that isn’t pre-portioned? DIY! This is what those little snack-size ziplock bags were made for. It will help prevent things from going stale and keep you on the straight and narrow.

Drink Lots of Water

The more hydrated you are, the less hungry you will feel, so be sure to keep water near you at all times and try to sip consistently throughout the day. 

Know Your Weaknesses and Avoid Them

Whatever it is that you cannot be trusted with? Don’t buy it.

Swap In Healthier Versions of What You Love

Buy slightly healthier versions of the stuff you crave to make your indulgences a little less risky. Popcorn is better than pretzels, which are better than chips. Dark chocolate squares or chocolate-covered almonds are a better choice than candy bars, and gummy candies are better than chocolate.

Freeze (and Hide) Your Treats

Freeze baked goods so that they have to be thawed before eating, putting a dent in impulse binging. If possible, store only a couple of portions of any snack food in easy-access locations - take advantage of high shelves that require a step stool or basement storage so that out of sight can help with out of mind. 

Keep Your Hands Busy

Any project that engages both hands and mind is a good deterrent. Knitting, coloring, prepping items for cooking later - do everything you can to keep active.

Keep Your Body Busy

Stretch, do a 10-minute meditation, three yoga poses, walk some laps in your house, or go up and down the stairs.

Cut Yourself a Whole Lot of Slack

Finally, be kind and generous to yourself and realize that there is no wagon to fall off of. If you overdo it in the morning, the afternoon is yours to course-correct. If you have a bad day, there is always tomorrow. We’re all in this together. And this, too, shall pass.
