Navigating the holiday season can be a challenge, but here are some tips for eating well over Christmas:

  1. Portion Control: Opt for smaller portions and savor each bite. Enjoy the flavors without overindulging.
  2. Protein First: Prioritize protein-rich foods as they are essential for post-surgery nutrition. Turkey, chicken, and fish can be great choices.
  3. Hydrate: Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Sometimes, our bodies can mistake thirst for hunger, so staying hydrated is key.
  4. Avoid Sugary Drinks: Limit your intake of sugary beverages, as they can contribute to empty calories. Opt for water, herbal tea, or other low-calorie options.
  5. Choose Wisely: Be selective with your food choices. Fill your plate with lean proteins, vegetables, and small portions of festive treats.
  6. Mindful Eating: Pay attention to hunger and fullness cues. Eating slowly and savoring each bite can help prevent overeating.
  7. Plan Ahead: If you’re attending a gathering, consider bringing a dish that aligns with your dietary needs. This ensures you have a healthy option available.
  8. Stay Active: Incorporate some physical activity into your holiday routine. It not only helps with weight management but also boosts your mood and energy levels.
  9. Listen to Your Body: If a certain food doesn’t agree with you or if you’re feeling full, don’t force yourself to eat more. Listen to your body’s signals.

Remember, it’s about finding a balance that works for you. Enjoy the festivities, and take pride in the progress you’ve made on your journey to better health!
