Christmas Eating Tips to Maintain Sugar Levels

Slow down during meals, allowing 20 minutes for your brain to register satisfaction. Consider second helpings of non-starchy vegetables.

Bring a nutritious appetizer to ensure a healthy option is available at gatherings.

Opt for lower-carb appetizers like veggies with dip or low-fat cheese, saving carbs for the main meal.

Choose smaller portions or limit yourself to 1-2 favorite carbohydrate side dishes during the main meal.

Stick to your regular meal schedule; plan a snack if holiday meals differ from your usual eating times.

Face away from the food table to reduce temptation.

Moderation is Key: Select two or three treats, savor them slowly, and enjoy them separately.
