Generally considered a time of merriment and good cheer, the holiday season can also be stressful for many people. How you're feeling around the holidays can directly impact how well you're eating. If you're stressed out about money or time, or in a bad mood for other reasons, you may find yourself mindlessly nibbling on those tempting, sugary, starchy, and fat-laden holiday treats to ease your anxiety. If you're following the South Beach Diet lifestyle, you know that filling up on sugar cookies, eggnog, or too many potato latkes can cause swings in blood sugar and cravings for more of the same — and ultimately derail your weight-loss goals. Keep the following pointers in mind when the holiday season becomes overwhelming.
