HOLIDAY SURVIVAL GUIDE TIPS: Here are five tips to keep you on track when you’re the host/hostess. Share with your friends and Clients to help keep them on track too!

1. Modify your favorites.
You may not have to give up traditional party favorites when you can make healthier versions of them. Mashed cauliflower makes a tasty alternative to mashed potatoes. Try sautéing in broth instead of butter.

2. Ask for (and accept) help.
Stress is a main trigger for unhealthy eating. Delegate tasks beforehand and don’t be afraid to ask your guests to bring a dish for all to enjoy.

3. Be leery of leftovers.
When you’re cleaning up, let someone else package leftovers while you wash dishes, sweep up, or take out the trash. Portion out healthy items into ready-made Lean & Green Meal™ servings for later.

4. Procrastinate with purpose.
If you’re baking or preparing calorie-rich foods for a gathering, wait and do so at the last minute so you spend less time looking at and smelling them.

5. Focus on your non-faves.
If you’re preparing party food, make it something that’s easier for you to resist. For example, if your weakness is chocolate, go with fruit. Not a huge fan of coconut? Bake macaroons.

You need to have yourself a little cheat now and again. If not you are heading for disaster. The rebound effect of extreme constant discipline could lead to binge eating which will be a lot worse than allowing yourself that piece of pie or cake on Christmas. Still count your calories for the day. And be cautious of food you do not prepare. But enjoy yourself. I plan to have German Double Chocolate Cake with Coconut Pecan Frosting and Ice Cream as my treat for Christmas. And I am very much looking forward to it.

Knowledge is important... As long as you understand how the body works when it comes to nutrition you can do whatever you want. Enjoy your cake and have a Merry Christmas.

Those nacho cheese ball things are horrible! My mother in law likes them and gave me a pack and I could barely choke down the whole thing!
