Why Your Nutritionist Wants You to Go Back For Seconds, Thirds…or Even Fourths

Every year around the holiday season, I read articles about the best ways to fight holiday weight gain. They all have tips about eating before you go, bringing a healthy dish to share or making exercise a priority. These are all great tips! In fact, I recommend them.

However, this year I want you to try something a little different. Instead of focusing on all of the stuff you shouldn’t have, go back for seconds! Let me explain…

Typically at holiday dinners, we build one enormous plate of food. It is piled high in a way that defies gravity and, if broken apart, could most likely feed a family of four. Then we sit down and eat the whole thing. Regardless of whether we like it or are even still hungry, we eat every last bit simply because it’s there. You can blame the clean plate club, or starving children in [insert country], or the belief that starting tomorrow we may never see turkey and mashed potatoes again. Whatever the reason, the end result is eating until we are sick and starting the New Year feeling bloated and disappointed.

This year, I want you to grab a very small amount of everything during the first go-around. It may seem silly or look funny in comparison to the leaning tower of latkes on your family member’s plate, but don’t worry! This isn’t the end of your meal. After you finish that plate, go back for seconds and grab your absolute favorites. When you are done, if you are still hungry, go back for thirds. You can go back as many times as you would like as long as you are still legitimately hungry.

What you will find is that, even with all the trips, you end up eating less than you would have with one giant plate. You also give your body a little time to register that it’s full so you don’t finish your delicious meal with antacids.

So, at that next big holiday feast, don’t be afraid of seconds – plan for them. This simple step will allow you to enjoy every bit of the holidays without spending the first quarter of 2013 making up for it.

And remember, a few small steps can lead to big changes.

  1. I just want to say I am just all new to blogs and definitely savored this blog. Very likely I’m planning to bookmark your blog . You actually have beneficial stories. Kudos for sharing your website.

  2. Yet another issue is that video games are usually serious anyway with the main focus on learning rather than amusement. Although, we have an entertainment factor to keep the kids engaged, just about every game is often designed to improve a specific skill set or curriculum, such as numbers or scientific research. Thanks for your posting.

  6. One other issue issue is that video games are generally serious in nature with the most important focus on understanding rather than leisure. Although, there’s an entertainment part to keep children engaged, each game will likely be designed to work with a specific set of skills or programs, such as math or technology. Thanks for your write-up.
