Avoid overeating this Thanksgiving by following a dietitian’s ’15-minute rule’ to prevent feeling too full.


Oh, the joys of the holiday season! Cozy gatherings filled with laughter, love, and of course, indulgent feasts. But fear not, my fellow fashionistas, for I have a secret to share with you – you can indulge in all the seasonal delights without compromising your sartorial elegance or healthy routines.

Say goodbye to the vicious cycle of restriction and binging, my dear foodie fashionistas. According to renowned dietitian and author of “This Is What You’re Really Hungry For,” Kim Shapira, there’s a delicious way to enjoy holiday food while maintaining your healthy habits. Are you ready to savor the flavors without the guilt?

Imagine yourself seated at a beautifully adorned table, surrounded by mouthwatering delicacies. The aroma of sumptuous dishes fills the air as you prepare to embark on a culinary adventure. But before you dive in, let’s discuss Shapira’s ingenious strategy to navigate the holiday feast with grace and moderation.

The Art of Slow, Sensational Savoring


Forget about the hurried gobbling and mindless munching, my fashion-forward friends. This holiday season, we shall embrace the art of the leisurely feast. By simply slowing down and savoring each delectable morsel, we can tune into our body’s natural hunger cues.

Picture this: your plate adorned with half of your normal portion, enticing you to embark on a sensational culinary journey. But hold your fork, my lovely fashionistas! Spend at least 15 glorious moments of pure enjoyment with your first serving. Allow your body to register if you’re still hungry before considering seconds. Mindful and satisfying – isn’t that what we strive for in both fashion and food?

Leftovers of Magic and Mastery


Ah, the joy of leftovers! But before we dive headfirst into a mountain of excess, let’s consider Shapira’s wisdom. She reminds us that not every meal should be devoured as if it’s our last. Fortunately, holiday feasts bless us with an abundance of leftovers, ready to be transformed into culinary masterpieces or devoured as midnight snacks.

Don’t let persistent restriction rule your gastronomic experience, my stylish darlings. Embrace the joy of guilt-free indulgence. Sample the array of seasonal flavors, taking small dollops of everything that tempts your tastebuds. Allow your natural hunger cues and discerning palate to guide you, ensuring each mouthful is a delightful celebration of taste and texture.

And remember, there’s always more to come! Make a stylish to-go plate of your favorites to enjoy later – letting go of the notion that this meal is the ultimate feast. Trust in the abundance of life and flavors, for food is meant to be savored, celebrated, and relished.

The Gracious Pitfalls of Pre-Feast Restriction


My beloved fashionistas, let us abandon the futile pursuit of pre-feast starvation. Instead of depriving ourselves in anticipation of the grand holiday feast, let’s embrace consistency. Our bodies thrive on it, just like a perfectly tailored dress or a meticulously curated outfit.

In an all-or-nothing world, we must be realistic. Maintain your healthy routines, sip your water like a lady with utmost poise, and take a leisurely stroll in that fabulous new coat. However, remember to surrender to the festive spirit and savor the joyous moments. Striving for perfection may lead us astray, my darlings. Allow yourself to indulge, to enjoy, and to revel in the decadent delights of the season.

So, my fellow fashionistas, as we embark on this holiday season, remember to celebrate with style, grace, and a healthy dose of ‘bon appétit.’ Embrace the art of joyful feasting, savor each flavor-filled moment, and let your fashion prowess shine. Happy holidays darlings, may your feasts be delicious and your fashion flawless!
