The holiday season may look a little different this year due to COVID, and medical experts are asking for scaled down holiday celebrations this season. Adam Schafer, a registered dietitian with OSF Healthcare says that virtual gatherings will be a big thing this year.

 

 

Schafer says that since large families will not be gathering this year, having a scaled down dinner and a meal prepared safely can go a long way towards preventing issues later on down the road.

 

 

One way that you can avoid feeling full after eating is to get some activity after you eat.

 

 

Other recommendations include eating until you feel 80% full, drink plenty of water, use smaller plates, and avoid calorie full dips. Schafer suggests leaving food in the kitchen so when you’re in the living room you won’t be tempted to snack all throughout the day.
