Advisory: Online eating habits

Feeling all full of myself (pun intended) after bringing Facebook safety tips to your attention recently, now I turn my ever-watchful eye to other concerns.

I was searching for an image for a possible post about “gatekeeper.” I forget why. But I do know that the picture on the left was one of the results and it sure is an attention grabber. 🙂

The image has something to do with eating healthy at holiday parties. OK, fine. I’ll go ahead and spread that bit of healthy goodness, too. The tips seem to make logical sense to me and I’m going to give them a try. After all, I need to stay at my optimal fighting weight.

I watched the video so you don’t have to. Here are the tips:

  • Instead of filling up on foods you wish you hadn’t eaten, aim for first filling up on a lot of vegetables and low-calorie dishes.
  • Put only two items on your plate at a time.
  • Try to keep on the other side of the room from the (buffet) table.

If you’re still hungry you can always go back for seconds.

If you dig on this kind of advice from the USDA then you can go get your fill at MyPyramid.gov.
