Health Tip: Avoid Holiday Overeating

- It's especially easy to overeat during the holiday season.

Here are suggestions on how to avoid overindulging in food, courtesy of the U.S. Department of Agriculture:

  • Eat just an appetizer for your meal, as portion sizes usually are smaller than entrees.
  • If you order an entrée at a restaurant or are served a meal at someone's home, try splitting the portion with someone else.
  • When you get your meal, immediately set aside half of it to take home and eat later.
  • Don't feel like you have to eat everything in front of you -- when you start to get full, stop.
