Weight Management

When it comes to holiday eating, one of the biggest mistakes people make is skipping breakfast and lunch in prep for a big dinner. Although this may seem like a way to minimize calories throughout the day, this approach lends itself to overeating and ultimately putting on the pounds. Nutritionists instead recommend eating a hearty breakfast and lunch rich in fibers on the day of a holiday meal to control hunger. If you still find yourself craving second helpings at dinner, wait 10 to 20 minutes before actually filling your plate. This gives your brain time to recognize if you’re actually full.
