Happy Holidays from Natural Solutions
The Holidays are in full swing and we all know what that means- food, family, food, friends, food, fun...and did we mention food? Although most of our Holiday traditions are centered around good food- you don't have to over-indulge and you can make better food choices, you just have to know what to pick and how to stick with it. And if by chance you do over indulge we can help you with sticking to your New Years resolutions and achieve those health goals.

Slice Holiday Calories
The holidays are upon us once again, meaning that sweets, treats, and high-calorie dishes often tag along to all our jolly gatherings-and pave the way for inevitable holiday weight gain. However, it is possible to enjoy this season without seeing the scale move in the wrong direction. With just a few adjustments (and without sacrificing flavor!), you can welcome the New Year without widening your waistline. Holiday weight gain typically starts-perhaps rather innocently-in mid-November. Between the taste-testing and the parties, a nibble here and a bite there, we may not even notice a major difference in our weight. The real culprit may be the first major meal of the season: Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, it's estimated that the average person consumes as many as 4,500 calories (or more!) during this meal.
Good Food- Healthy Holiday Parties
Stringing up multicolored lights and decorating the house for the holidays just puts me in a good mood. I guess that's because I like throwing parties and having the chance to cook for friends and family. We all have a lot to be thankful for, and there's nothing better than good food and good conversation to underscore that theme. As much as I love to concoct all kinds of delicacies in my kitchen though, it's getting trickier and trickier to plan these party menus. Lately, everyone seems to be on a different food wavelength. Join Maureen Callahan, RD as she shares how she had good food at her Holiday parties even with “special diets.”
Achieve Your New Years Health Goals
Every January 1, it's the same deal. I'm eager to write out a resolution list and get started on my goals, because this year I will drop 10 pounds, stress less, save more money, and be the most giving person I can be. Fast-forward a few weeks, or even several days: That list is now located under a mountain of papers on my desk, and I'm back to my same old routine of going to costly, caloric happy hours with friends, rushing through workouts, and stressing over deadlines. Sticking to your goals isn't easy. Get ideas on how better to achieve your goals for the New Year here!
