Dallas Medical Weight Loss- Holiday Weight Management Tip 4
Food Diary-Track What you Eat
Make it a habit to Keep track of what you eat by keeping a food diary during Holidays to help you stay on target. Holiday time is loaded with little temptations that somehow find their way into our mouth without any thought!
In our office, we tell our patients to allow themselves a “controlled treat time” for important occasions but keep portion size small and make up over the next couple of day. Denying yourself leads to frustration-breakdown and overindulgence. Plan ahead and be smart, have an occasional treat in moderation and make up the next couple of days. This helps our patients stay on weight goal target.
