8 Steps to Healthy Eating This Christmas

Christmas is a time of celebration, but it also tends to be a time of high-fat, high-calorie food. In fact, the average person eats about 6,000 calories of food on Christmas day!  Being part of the Christmas celebration without sabotaging your health goals may be difficult, but it is definitely doable. The key to eating healthy at Christmas is to plan ahead, bringing your own snacks and dishes if necessary, so that you don’t get caught unaware and end up filling up on unhealthy options.

Step 1

Eat a healthy breakfast on Christmas morning. Include at least one fruit or vegetable and some protein such as eggs or nuts. This will help stave off hunger and prevent overeating high-calorie snacks while waiting for the big lunch or dinner to be served.

Step 2

Bring a nutritious dish to the festivities. Offer beforehand to provide a salad or vegetable side dish so you can be assured that there will be at least one healthy item at the meal.


Life Tips for Success

A young entrepreneur approached a corporate leader after a seminar and asked, “I’m not very smart but I’m hardworking. Will I ever succeed?” Without blinking an eye, the expert said, “You will definitely succeed! You have three of the most important traits for success: hardworking, knowing what you don’t know, and asking for help.”

We at The Academy of Kings completely agree with that answer. Intelligence seems to be quite over-rated as an ingredient for success. In fact, intelligence can mean trouble for the young, because it can often make one lazy, over-confident and proud. The most successful people in any field are those who ask for help because they know what they do not know. And they work hard.

Keep that in mind the next time you’re tempted to doubt if you’ll ever make it in a world where everybody seems to value degrees and titles above everything else.
