Keep an eye out for recipes with fruits and vegetables that can fill almost half your plate.

Give Up Alcohol

We hate to be a killjoy, but for the sake of slimmer abs, you may want to step away from the bar cart and keep tabs on your alcohol consumption this season.

Choose Your Sweets Wisely

After a holiday feast, you may feel pressured to indulge in something sweet — even if you didn't actually save room.

Make Protein a Priority

Skip Sweet Drinks

A surprising source of extra calories this time of year are beverages, and we don't just mean the kind of alcohol.

Many people are looking for ways to keep up with their health goals during the holiday season, which can sometimes prove difficult but important.
