How to Stay Healthy During the Holiday Season

staying healthy in the winter

The holiday season is great, but it can get pretty stressful. There’s tons of shopping and preparing to do, work is busy and schools are wrapping up final exams. To top it all off, candy canes, gingerbread houses and other sugary treats seem to pop up everywhere. So, with less free time and tempting desserts staring you in the eye, how can you stay healthy during the holiday season? Here are some tips:

Embrace and Enjoy the Elements
If you live in a cold climate, it’s pretty easy to get cozy indoors and watch television or read a good book when winter sets in. That’s all well and good, but being outside during winter can be really fun and rewarding. Try skiing, hockey or a snow run to really break a sweat. Don’t want something that intense? Snowshoeing and snow hiking can be fun and get your heart pumping.

Pack Your Desserts with Protein  
Just because you want to live a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to skip eating dessert altogether. Try adding BiPro Whey Protein Isolate powder to anything from cookiesbrownies or even cheesecake. Protein is a natural appetite suppressant, so implementing it to your dessert recipes will make the treats more filling – keeping you from going back for second and third helpings. If you want a festive dessert idea, try these BiPro Gingerbread Bites!

Have a Snack Before Going to a Holiday Party
Jae Berman, a registered dietitian, wrote an article for the Washington Post outlining ways to avoid gaining weight during the holidays. Holiday parties are really fun, but the snacks at them are usually pretty unhealthy. So, Berman suggests eating before you go to a holiday party:

“A common approach is to save your calories because you know dinner is going to be large, but when you walk into an event hungry, you are not setting yourself up for success. You will probably overeat, and your body will store the extra food as fat,” Berman wrote.
