Health Tip: Holiday Diet
If after Thanksgiving you feel somewhat defeated by your diet, it’s no reason to wait until New Year’s Day to start over. It is possible (and important) to maintain an healthy and nutritious diet through the holidays, while still enjoying all of the feasts and festivities.

A study by the New England Journal of Medicine found that most people gained about one pound between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. Although it doesn’t seem like much, the problem is that we often don’t loose that pound and they accumulate over the years. In addition, high stress during the holidays can lead to increased food or alcohol intake, and can have serious long-term health consequences.
Seek additional support if you feel you are overindulging in unhealthy food or alcohol to alleviate stress. Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), family doctors or clergy can provide valuable assistance and resources to help you feel more in control.
