The holiday season usually comes with extra pounds, but it doesn’t have to be that way! My patients’ goal for this period is to maintain a diet. Balance is the key, take care of yourself and celebrate the progress you have made so far!

How do we manage the comments of those around the table during the holidays?

‘What they say’ VERSUS ‘How can you answer’

You have to eat from this pie! -> It looks delicious, but I think I’ll only taste a little after dinner.

Why don’t you have a glass of wine? Are you pregnant? -> A glass of water is enough for the moment, thank you.

Why don’t you want to taste this rich meal? -> I’ll taste it later, after I get my protein and vegetable portion first.

You look very good! No need to diet! -> It’s not just about how I look, I want to stay in good health.
