- Question from FranH: I have breast cancer. What should I be avoiding during the holidays?
- Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I would phrase it the other way—"What should I be enjoying?" There are endless enjoyable, healthy, delicious holiday foods and to think about what you can eat, what you want to eat, and what you will enjoy eating is what to think about as you survey the buffet table. And of course, with all treats, it's moderation.
- Jennifer Sabol, M.D., F.A.C.S. I think that's true. There is nothing you can't consume in moderation if you regard it as a special treat during the holidays. The good feelings associated with holidays do more for your overall health than any small deviation from a healthy diet.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Eating and Drinking Through the Holidays featured Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. and moderator Jennifer Sabol, M.D. answering your questions about how to stay healthy during the most hectic, high-calorie time of year.
