The holidays are once again upon us, and this is the only time of year that I throw all caution, and low-carb eating, to the wind. I have far too many happy, childhood memories surrounding the baking of bread, cookies, and other carb-loaded treats. I can ignore my cravings for 11 months out of the year, but in Decemeber my will power disappears and goes into hibernation.
I figure if I’m good with my diet and exercise (and I keep up that exercise throughout December), than the carb-loaded indulgences I allow myself during the holidays shouldn’t be so bad. I save all my “cheats” for this time of year, because this is the only time of year my carb cravings are overwhelming.
Are you following a low-carb lifestyle? How do you handle the holidays? Do you stick to your guns and refuse any and all carb-laden offerings, do you indulge in just the littlest of nibbles here and there, or do go whole-hog and just dive into all the carby goodness? Please leave a comment – I’d love to hear from you!
