According to Roots, tracking your food is “one of the best ways to hold yourself accountable to what you put in your mouth each day; however, still make sure you allow yourself the ability to enjoy all the good food the holidays have to offer, just in moderation!” Roots explains that you can “allow yourself 1-2 cheat meals each week to really enjoy some good food and good company, but be sure to get back on track right after.” Remember it’s a cheat MEAL, not a cheat day. “If you are going to a dinner party at night, get a good workout in that morning and eat healthy for the rest of the day to reduce any damage done,” she adds.
