Day 298-2 (W, 121024) — 11 Nice Ways to Say ‘No’ to Food Pushers

A Useful Resource.  I like SparkPeople.com.  I use their nutrition tracker every day and their recipe calculator often.

While I don’t agree with the “low-fat-will-save-you” version of standard nutrition advice they offer, they often have helpful articles about exercise, motivation, dieting tips and tricks, etc.  Here’s a good one they posted recently:

During the holiday season, food temptations are everywhere. From stuffing and pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving to eggnog and sugar cookies in December, the seasonal temptations are endless. It can be tough enough to navigate the turkey buffet without having your great aunt force an extra helping of potatoes on your plate or resisting Grandma Dolly’s pleas that you take a second piece of her famous apple pie.

Food pushers range from well-intentioned loved ones to total diet saboteurs. Regardless of their motivation, it’s important to stick to your guns. You can always be honest and say that you’re simply trying to eat healthier, but if that response gets ignored (or doesn’t come easily), the following retorts to their food-forcing ways will keep you in control of what goes on your plate and in your mouth!

Read and learn how to keep your (diet) cool this season.
