The J.D. Byrider community is proud to support the American Heart Association’s National Start Eating Healthy Day on Wednesday, Nov. 2nd by encouraging everyone to have a healthier, happier holiday season this year.
Take a big step toward a healthier lifestyle by making small changes to your holiday eating habits. Just a few ideas to get you going include:
• When preparing turkey, reach for the lighter pieces of meat; they have fewer calories and less fat than the darker ones.
• Keep portions in check. A serving of meat is 3 ounces, about the size of a deck of cards. So, be conscious of how much you put on your plate, and pass on the second helping.
• When enjoying alcoholic beverages, break it up! Reduce the amount of calorie-laden drinks you consume by drinking a glass of water between each beverage. This will help fill your stomach, leaving less room to overindulge.
• When it comes to desserts, treat yourself right. The best way to enjoy a holiday without losing control is by sampling, rather than having full servings. For example, have one bite of pie, half a cookie, and one small square of fudge.
AND, J.D. Byrider is giving away a prize pack that can help jump start your healthy eating habits AND buy your Thanksgiving dinner!
