Eating through the Holidays can be tricky. You quickly lose track of what you eat as you enjoy the company of family and friends or get caught up in the spirit and traditions of the season. The attendees learned that planning and forethought is the first step to making it through the celebrations without throwing off their eating plan.
They discussed what to put on the plate first, fitting in exercise, standing far away from the buffet table, and not showing up hungry at the party and shared what worked for them in the past and what they could do this year.
