The holidays are upon us. Before you've had time to polish off your kids' Halloween candy, Christmas displays appear. Your officemates fill the kitchen with delicacies, and the workweek becomes a five-day food frenzy. If you've wondered if it's possible to enjoy the festivities without gaining weight and eat well at the same time, the answer is yes. Try these tips for conscious eating the next time you're confronted with temptation and you'll find yourself eating better and feeling better.
Don't be a two-fisted eater.
Conscious eating means eliminating distractions and noticing how much food you're consuming. A perfect way to avoid shoveling in calorie-laden appetizers with both hands is to hold a bottle of water or a low-cal beverage in one. With only one hand reaching for food, you'll naturally slow down. Be sure to chew, talk, and maybe keep one hand free to wave at your friends across the room.
