I have 3 rules for you:
1. Eat more of the things that are good for you and less of the things that are bad.
2. Do not overindulge. Moderation is key.
3. Guilt makes everything worse. Do not worry incessantly about the chips or the piece of cheesecake. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
Enjoy yourself this holiday. Have a glass of wine and one desert. Eat that cheese dip. Just don’t go off the deep end. These foods and traditions are culturally significant and missing out on them completely does not make us feel good.
More health, less junk, moderation, no guilt means you will get through the season with your body and mind in tact.
