Avoid the Holiday ‘Indulge and Bulge’ Trap

By admin – December 5, 2012

Every year about this time, I find myself completely amazed that the holiday season is here already. Usually, I am reminded by clients, when I ask them what challenges they see coming up. Inevitably, the struggles this time of year include the multitude of holiday parties and family gatherings. Buffets, the seasonal lattes at your favorite coffee house, pecan pies, eggnog, alcohol, and entire parties centered on food such as the always-delicious cookie exchange. Toss in some extra stress from parents, in-laws, co-workers and your boss and you may find yourself using food as an escape. In reality, when you think about it, you have probably been dealing with these same challenges all year, there just happen to be many more of them crammed into November and December. Food is everywhere this time of year, so instead of avoiding it or using it as a reward or an escape from stress, learn to improve your relationship with food so you can eat what you truly enjoy and stay healthy.
