Make sure you have a good breakfast. Get up at an appropriate time and prepare a breakfast rich in fruits, vegetables and proteins. This will take care of hunger during the day and will help prevent the urge to overeat during the Christmas dinner.
If your family is organizing the Christmas dinner, make sure that a healthy and nutritious element, either a salad or vegetables cooked in olive oil, is included in the menu.
After your breakfast, make sure you eat healthy food after three hours. A couple of oatmeal cookies to keep hungry or a small lunch are ideal.
At the most anticipated time of the Christmas banquet, be sure to measure your portions. Your first round of food has to be the healthiest. Choose the salad, vegetables and a protein. The best thing is to fill yourself with healthy food and then in the second portion you are more full and choose to eat the basics.
Accompany your dinner with a glass of natural water or fruit, no added sugar, no juices.
Take a cup of tea before, or instead of, dessert. Tea has a lot of antioxidants, and liquid fills, so you're less likely to have two dessert servings.
