If you’ve made it this far staying true to your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier, good work! Don’t be nervous about the inevitable temptations you’ll face at the upcoming Super Bowl party. Just keep these tips in mind to help stay on track as you get ready to cheer on your favorite team.
Tip #1: Don't Get Too Hungry on Game Day
It's hard to make good food choices when you're hungry. Your hunger will not only dictate what you eat, but also how much. Be sure to have a high-protein breakfast, like an UNJURY® shake or bar and eat small, frequent meals throughout the day. Avoid going more than 4 hours without eating to keep blood sugar and hunger levels stable.
Tip #2: Be Your Own MVP
Don’t get so caught up in pre-party preparations that you’re distracted from your daily health goals. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to ensure you stay hydrated, and get some walking or other exercise in to keep your metabolism active.
Tip #3: Curb Your Appetite Before You Go
Many people think they should skip meals to "save" their calories for party foods. This often backfires. Try having an UNJURY® shake or bar before the party, so that hunger doesn’t get the best of you. Protein works better at curbing hunger than any other source of nutrition.
Tip #4: Make Healthy Alternatives Available
If you're the host, you can easily include plenty of healthy dishes in the spread. If you're a party guest, don't hesitate to bring a healthy dish to share. It's a thoughtful gesture, and will ensure that you have a good option. Check out these UNJURY Recipes for ideas!
