Even though I grew up in Florida, I've lived in the northeast for almost a decade now. And I'm still amazed at how cold it gets this time of year! While cold weather might lead us to think of comfort foods, those foods don't have to be high in calories or fat: Nutritious foods like spaghetti squash and pomegranate can be oh so comforting.
With a little planning, you can enjoy the holidays while also keeping the pounds off (and maybe even losing a few, too). Yes, you can lose weight this holiday season! See what advice I give in this ReadersDigest.com article. Need some help in cooking at home? See my thoughts on Hello Fresh meals.
Let’s face it: Weight loss is difficult this time of year. Even as a registered dietitian nutritionist, I know the struggle of wanting to chow down on one too many baked goods when faced with a holiday dessert buffet. However, taking control of my food choices during winter festivities can help prevent weight gain this season. Together, we can tackle the holidays, possibly even ending up a few pounds lighter!
