DO NOT OVERINDULGE
Just because it is the holiday season, it does not mean you should eat everything that's put in front of you. Remember that the season will soon be over and you will have to get on that scale again. Try to control yourself at least a little bit.

CAREFUL WITH ALL THOSE DESSERTS
Desserts are very popular during the holiday season. Jose Fernandez's recommendation is to make your desserts at home, using moderate amounts of sugar. You should also include ingredients like fruits, almonds and all types of nuts, instead of sweets.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER
Drink two glasses of water half an hour before your Christmas Eve dinner. This will make your stomach feel full faster and, as a result, you will end up eating less.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS
When preparing food, try using natural, fresh ingredients. Stay away from regular sauces, which are loaded with sodium. Instead, choose one without salt.

LOOK FOR THAT FIBER

THE LESS SUGAR, THE BETTER
Try to stay away from sugar as much as possible. If you're making dessert, having coffee, tea or hot chocolate, use a sugar brand made from stevia, a species of herbs in the sunflower family used as a sweetener.

WALK, WALK, WALK
When you go Christmas shopping, park your car in the spot farthest from the store. That way you will walk more and burn some extra calories.
