How to stay healthy (and slim) over the Holidays

The Christmas season is famous for it’s many parties, drinks, and belt-loosening dinners. Here are some ways that you can stay healthy and energized over the winter break.

Hydrogenated Fat

One way to avoid weight gain is to stay away from foods made with hydrogenated fat (like margarine) – it will make your bodies detox system slow and increase the amount of energy it requires for digestion.

Snack frequently

Every couple hours have a small healthy snack to stabilize your blood sugar. If you have regular blood sugar fluctuations your energy will be used more quickly, you are more susceptible to weight gain, and your immune system will weaken. Try having pre-prepared snacks like carrots and dip and crackers and cheese ready for when you start to get the munchies.

Eat more fruit

Heavy food can slow down your lymphatic system and make you feel more tired. Eat plenty of fruit to cleanse your lymphatic system and make you feel more energetic.Eat healthy at home – when you aren’t attending parties or dinners, have a healthy meal at home like a big leafy salad with nuts and fruit.


It may be hard to find the time or location to do so, but it is important to exercise during the Holidays in order to maintain your stress and energy levels. 20 minutes of daily vigorous activity will get your blood flowing and keep your brain awake.

Plan Ahead

Many people feel stressed out during the holidays. This can hinder your mood and energy levels. If you plan your month ahead of time you will find that you won’t feel rushed when Christmas day closes in, and therefore you will feel less stress. Try to make sure you do your Christmas shopping and gift wrapping early, and try to do any baking ahead of time so that when the time comes, you aren’t rushing to get everything done.

Drink Water

During parties and dinners, be sure to drink plenty of water in order to prevent dehydration and help your body systems function properly.

Take it easy

Don’t over do yourself at the snack table. Eat in small amounts and go easy on the sugar – of course you are allowed to treat yourself every now and then.

Get lots of sleep

We tend to feel more sleepy during the winter months. Its important to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night to feel your best. To avoid burning out – take a nap when you begin to feel drowsy. This will ensure that you have enough energy for upcoming parties and evening events!

Take your Vitamins

Vitamins B and C are both reduced by alcohol and stress. To make sure that you are getting the vitamins and minerals you need, take vitamin B-Complex and vitamin C or a multivitamin. Enough vitamin B in the body helps reduce symptoms of stress.
