Stressors of Keto During the Holidays

 

You don't have to cheat your way through family occasions and ruin all of your hard work. Staying Keto during the holidays can be a positive experience.You know how to eat Keto and you have been doing it successfully for some time now.  It’s nothing new. However, the holidays do bring along some unique challenges that can get in your way.  

One of those could be a simple temptation. You may be used to your current diet, but you are also used to your holiday traditions.

 You may catch yourself looking forward to your favorite holiday dish, or loading your plate with goodies only to realize they are all carbs and sugar.  

The other potential stressor might be even harder to overcome. That is your relative’s expectations and attitudes toward your diet.

These things are both tough to get over, but you can manage them to stay Keto during the holidays.

Dealing with Temptation

 

Temptation can be strong when the holidays come around even if the Keto diet is old hat to you.  

The pull to indulge in former holiday traditions can be very strong.

You will find yourself in a unique situation during family dinners where temptation is all around you.  

Usually, you have the sense to keep those things away. If you are lucky enough to be hosting your family, this is not as big of a problem, but if not bring a dessert or side dish of your own.

 That will help ensure you have something that is Keto friendly.

It’s better to indulge in what you know is Keto friendly than to cheat on your diet.

Another good idea is to stay on track, but be a little less strict about dishes with gray areas.  

If it seems to be pretty Keto, but you aren’t sure about a sauce component, you don’t necessarily have to say no.

Dealing with Family

 

Family can be tough to deal with when you are on any kind of diet, they can be pushy, and inconsiderate.  

You may communicate in advance that you have this diet that you are sticking to and they might totally disregard it.  

It helps if you have one understanding person that you can enlist as your advocate if things get bad.

The most important thing is to have an answer ready when people push you about Keto.  

Let them know it is important to you to stay on track during the holidays.

If you have brought your own food, your contribution will also help spread goodwill.

 

Aftermath

 

If you mess up, don’t be too hard on yourself and don’t try to overcompensate.  

Just get right back into your diet and be positive. Otherwise, you will spiral and you might lose more control.  

One bad day is not the end of the world, but if you get stuck on your mistakes you might just keep making them over and over.
