Get-togethers with our loved ones during the holiday season make it tough for anyone to stay on track. Yet no-one wants to greet 2018 with any extra pounds.

Here are a few tips to help you survive the holidays and sail through the season happy, healthy, and very wise.

  1. Eat your breakfast! You'll be less tempted to overindulge on holiday goodies. Start your day out right with the most important meal of the day.
  2. Stay hydrated! Drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day. (150 pounds = 75 ounces of water) You'll fight hunger and holiday fatigue.
  3. Eat before you go to a party and prepare a healthy  appetizer to take with you. Those with similar goals looking for better options will thank you!
  4. Enjoy your holiday favorites but practice portion control. Often, a few bites will satisfy any craving and won't blow your weight loss goals. Listen to your body.
  5. Since many traditional holiday foods are loaded with calories, do an internet search and give your favorites a healthy upgrade. Use the words "healthy", "low-cal", "gluten free" or "dairy free". Whatever your vice is, you'll be surprised at how many healthy alternatives are available for you to do some tweaking.
  6. Give family, friends and neighbors nonfood treats. An ornament, a gift certificate, something calorie free that will last longer than a few bites.
  7. Rev up your metabolism by exercising before and after holiday dinners so those calories do not find a resting place. Grab your family and friends and take the opportunity to spend quality time together!
  8. Pack your shopping cart with even more fruits and vegetables this time of year. Make them easily accessible for a quick and healthy snack.
  9. Plan your meals ahead of time. When the craziness of the holidays sets in, you'll be ready with better choices.
  10. Stay focused on your goals and keep your promise to yourself that you will have a healthy and rewarding holiday season and a major jump on the new year. While you may not be able to control what you are being served at all times, you always have control over what you eat.
