Holiday Eating: Survival Tip # 2

Let the celebrating begin! You can enjoy the holiday season while maintaining your commitment to optimal health. Remember this basic concept: Drink plenty of water. Water can be filling which may diminish hunger and allow for healthful food decision making. You can dilute juice drinks with water, which will lower the amount of sugar and calories you take in. If you are partying, I recommend alternating water with alcoholic beverages to prevent overdoing the alcohol as well as decrease your simple carbohydrate and calorie intake (and minimize the morning after headache…).


Holiday Eating: Survival Tip # 1

Let the celebrating begin! You can enjoy the holiday season while maintaining your commitment to optimal health. Remember this basic concept: Eat 5 small meals per day. This approach to eating is recommended to both maintain efficient metabolism and to minimize hunger. Eating often throughout the day allows for healthful food decision making. You know what happens when you become ravenous—you will eat any and all food put in front of you!

"With you guiding me through the HeartMatters program, I was able to achieve a level of physical fitness that made regular and focused exercise feel more like a natural part of my day. I had slipped into a malaise that meant exercise could be ‘put aside’ for work or other important activities. Getting past this is a subtle but powerful accomplishment.

I really enjoyed playing and exercising with you outdoors (my preferred MO for our time together). The joy you bring to your work is wonderful. This flexibility put a kind of structure into my day that helped me ‘choose’ again – showed me how to take back some control of my schedule for important things like meditation and exercise.  It was also part of my journey of re-learning how to say NO to things. This represents additional forward movement for me.

Thanks Robin – I have really benefited from your work in more ways than just the obvious fitter, leaner, stronger me."
