Dallas Medical Weight Loss- Holiday Weight Management Tip # 3
Eat Regular Meals
Skipping meals is the wrong strategy for weight control. It inevitably leads to overeating at the next meal. Eating “smart” low carbohydrate, high protein, low fat meals with fiber every 3-4 hours keeps the metabolic balance of metabolic hormones which stabilize your weight. It also keeps you full and satisfied so you don”t overindulge in heavy Holiday desserts and hor’devoures.
When planning for Holiday parties, it is best to eat ligt and smart all day to prevent overeating of calorie packed holiday foods.
