Football season provides many challenges to those living a healthy lifestyle. Weekly watch parties often include a potluck full of unhealthy snacks and very few Medifast-friendly treats. This weekend during the big game, stay on track with these registered dietitian tips and recommendations!
1. Visit with your friends away from the food table.
If you spend time close to the snacks, you might be tempted to over-indulge! Pick a spot on the opposite side of the room, and focus on the great conversation and the big game.
2. Focus on what you CAN have instead of what you CAN’T.
Are you bringing your favorite healthy dessert or dip? Enjoy the foods you’re able to eat instead of thinking about the treats you won’t indulge in.
3. Drink more water!
Many party snacks, such as chips and pretzels, are high in sodium. Drinking more water will keep you hydrated, and it will also keep you feeling full all night!
4. Don’t skip breakfast or try to “save up” calories.
Eating regularly throughout the day will keep you from getting too hungry and overeating unhealthy food.
5. Skip the alcohol and stick to low-calorie drinks, such as club soda with a lime or your favorite Medifast Flavor Infuser!
