The best action is to do your best to stay on your diet plan. However, if there will be a cheat over the holidays, have it be a “cheat meal,” not a “cheat day,” to avoid a substantial increase in your calorie intake.

I always tell my patients who have a cheat meal to first eat any proteins, vegetables, or other items on the Approved Foods list. Then, only have a bite or two of something they crave. You could also incorporate our Carb Control supplement into your routine.

While a single cheat meal won’t derail your diet completely, it’s important to get back on your plan as soon as possible. If you have a lapse, remind yourself of your “why,” or purpose, behind your weight loss journey. This will help you get back on track and stay committed to your long-term success.

Remember: If you need additional support during the holidays, don’t hesitate to reach out to your RM Provider. We are here for you and will work with you to plan ahead for a successful holiday season.
