Avoid overeating

We all think of food when it comes to the holiday season and many family get togethers are usually built around a mealtime. This can be a great way to socialise and catch up. But what happens when you overeat too often?

Overeating can lead to weight gain and many other health conditions that may arise from it. Try to maintain a balanced and healthy diet during the holiday season and remember that this applies to your choice of beverages as well. Treating yourself to certain foods, indulgences or extra portions are okay once in a while – just try not to overdo it!
