The holidays are here already! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and in this episode, Andrew dives into holiday nutrition. We all know that we tend to eat more during the holiday season, and food is typically the centerpiece of our holiday celebrations. What if we make nutrition a centerpiece too?
Andrew provides some great tips in this episode about living healthier during the holiday season, even though our plans this year may look a little bit different. It’s possible to enjoy the holidays without taking ourselves completely off course and feel the need to make a drastic change once the new year hits. Andrew includes tips on how to be present during the holidays and paying attention to our hunger cues. When we overeat, how much of it did we actually enjoy?
Looking at portion sizes, one huge meal at Thanksgiving is not going to make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. It’s when we overeat consistently throughout the holiday season that has the greatest impact on our health and well-being. Paying attention to our portion sizes can help us to continue enjoying what we love during the holidays without overdoing it.
Listen in on Andrew’s other great tips, such as adding value to our favorite holiday foods, thinking ahead of each meal, and striving to create a better balance. The holiday season can be the best time to pay attention to our nutrition habits. All in all, a few indulgent evenings are not going to make or break our results. It’s our habits during all of the other days of the year that matter most. Enjoy this episode where Andrew empowers us to develop a new holiday mindset around enjoying food while sustaining our performance.
