It's the time of the year when the word diet is simply unacceptable. The holiday season has arrived and it only means one thing—FOOD! There's no excuse for not eating anything (especially during Noche Buena!) and for us Filipinos, it's one thing we all have in common—we love bonding over good food. With this in mind, we still have to remember that we have to keep our bodies fit even though there are temptations everywhere! Candy gives you tips on how to enjoy Christmas without worrying about our weight.

1. Don't go to any Christmas party on an empty stomach
Your tendency is to overeat if you're hungry and feel bloated by the end of the night. Be sure to grab a light snack before heading to any Christmas parties to avoid over indulging.

2. Watch what you eat
Even though everyone says that it's an excuse to eat anything this season, you still have to watch your food intake. It's just a matter of moderation and self-control.

3. Drink lots of water
Drinking water will wash all the toxins from your body. It will also help you feel full so you won't think of eating a lot.

4. Exercise
The most important thing is to sweat it all out! Take a 30-minute walk around your village or go for a run. There's nothing better than burning the extra calories and have room for more Christmas food!

5. Have fun!
Don't stress yourself if you think you're going to get fat and not eat at all. Just loosen up and be kind to your body. Eat what you can and enjoy!
