MCKOOL: Uh oh, it’s the holidays

Without a doubt there are many, many tips out there this time of year on how to not over-indulge and stay healthy over the holidays – eat a healthy meal before the big Christmas dinner, just taste small portions of the things you love, only have one serving – not two, push yourself away from the table as soon as you start feeling full, go for a walk after dinner, drink lots of water before-hand so you feel fuller by dinner time, and so on.
