Holiday Weight Loss Tip: Pick a Treat

This time of year treats are everywhere, so don't even try to tell yourself you are not going to partake in any. That's just not realistic--and like a diet, it doesn't work! And if you do succeed chances are really good that at some point in the New Year something inside you is going to rebel--and she will be pissed off, and rightfully so, that she missed out on some of the year's best goodies!

Rather than risking the wrath of this inner demon, pick a holiday favorite (or two...) and really enjoy them. Savor every morsel. Really taste the flavors, feel the sensation in your mouth and across your tongue. Enjoy it for as long as you can.

It isn't about eating massive is about relishing what you do eat. The pleasure is in the mouth, so let it linger there a little bit longer before you swallow.

So if you love candy canes and divinity, then enjoy them and leave the Gingerbread men for the rest of us!
