Are You Indulging in Holiday Treats This Year?

If you've already been to a holiday party this season, you may have come face to face with eggnog, a cookie plate, or lots of fried latkes. It can be hard to resist these delicious treats, especially since the holidays are a time of enjoyment and celebration. While I always try to practice moderation during this decadent time of year, my usually fit friend gives herself a break over the holidays and indulges as much as she wants to — how about you?

Holidays are no excuse in my book - health comes before EVERYTHING to me!

um, probably not. personally, i don't see why it is ok for me to completely dismiss my clean eating just because that is the 'norm.' i know i will get plenty of comments from friends and family regarding this, but i can easily enjoy the holiday season without going crazy over indulgences.

If I can enjoy myself with fresh treats at one sitting, I will get it out of my system. But when people bring in all their stale leftovers and cheap food gifts (ie popcorn tins, bargan basement chocolate, old cookies, fruitcake--who eats that anyway!) blech! No thanks!

It depends -- only if I come across something worth the calories and fat.

I only eat seasonal indulgences that I make, so I know they are relatively good for me.

Ugh, I'm already overindulging- will have to work out extra hard and eat really clean after the big day.

I'll eat a small piece of fudge and a cookie or two, but only on Christmas Eve, not every day from now until New Years'.

I'll eat the treats that I want; that's how I always am. However, I know the difference between really wanting a treat or just eating it because it is there.

I love christmas cookies so I don't deny myself this joy! Homemade snickerdoodles are my favorite!

I'll be conscious of what I'm eating and try to not eat too horribly, but really I'm not too worried. It's the holidays. :)

I really only bake a ton of cookies and other things around the holidays, so I eat what I like and don't worry too much about eating some cookies every night after dinner. I still make sure to pack in lots of fruits and veggies, though.

I started eating gluten-free about six months ago due to stomach problems, so that makes it a lot easier to avoid baked goods. I still indulge in candy, chocolate, and wine though!

I am pregnant and rarely crave sweets. I will eat a delicious homemade cookie though! I don't bake so I would have to do that at others homes. Plus, without alcoholic beverages I really save calories that I can use to eat apple pie! :feedme: lol.

I am. Normally my indulgences are controlled and calculated but I'm pregnant with my last child this Xmas and have decided since I never stray from a clean diet that I'm okay with going with how I feel this time around. If that means some eggnog and chocolates, I'm cool with it. I'm also a personal trainer and nutritionist so any extra weight gain from this will be dealt with post-birth. :d
