This time of year it seems that everyone turns into a food pusher. "Here, taste these cookies. I got you this wonderful box of cholates for Christmas. Here’s a dish that you have to try…I made it myself! Sound familiar? Unfortunately, the holidays are a time when food pushing is not only accepted, but is expected. It happens! Rather than give in, and end up gaining the average 7-10 pounds of fat this holiday season, arm yourself with these 5 clever ways to stop food pushers in their tracks. #1: “Try this new treat I made, you’ll love it!” Response: “I wish that I had room right now, but I’m stuffed.” #2: “I know this dish is your favorite! Hand me your plate.” Response: “I really can’t wait to try some in a little bit.” #3: “Take these treats and leftovers home!” Response: "Thanks, but I want you to keep the food so that you can take a break from all the cooking you’ve been doing.” #4: “You are obsessed with dieting. Just take a break today.” Response: "Thank you for noticing all of the healthy changes I’ve been making! It’s not easy, but I’m on track with my goals and it’s all worth it. Your support means a lot.” #5: “I only make this dish once a year – you MUST eat some!” Response: “Wow, that looks amazing! I’m going to skip it this year so that I can live to see many more wonderful holidays with you.” (said in humor of course!) Take control of your eating this holiday season, and don’t ever let a food pusher decide what you’re going to eat! If you use some of the responses from above, you'll be able to avoid the typical holiday weight gain and start the New Year off right!

HERE'S TO 2015!
