With the holidays come big family meals, social dinners out, and travel-worthy holiday feasts. 

For many who are currently prioritizing weight management, this time of year can be really stressful. You may be worried that holiday meals will derail your goals. 

While this worry of weight gain is real and legitimate, our experience is that you can find a balance. Consider the social value of food as a way to come together with loved ones. This often has a more positive effect on our well-being than the increase in caloric intake has negatively. 

Don’t be afraid of a little pie this holiday season, and have compassion for yourself.
