Do you go off your diet around the holidays?

Do you go off your diet around the holidays?

LavenderSkies LavenderSkies
With all of the great food around Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's hard for me to stay on a diet! For those also on one, do you give yourself the holidays "off"?

I'm not on a diet, but I don't cave and eat anything that isn't vegan, which is pretty much everything on the menu.

I cave in... "responsibly". I indulge, but don't go so crazy that I feel awful later. Usually.

Some of the vegan options are pretty ridiculous, calorie-wise. Field Roast's Celebration Roast is out to destroy waistlines everywhere (as many vegans have complained)! I suspect that's why the portions are so small. lol

Nevertheless, I think I want to get one this year.

I usually bend the rules between the end of November and January 1st.

Ditto - interesting assumption that everyone is perpetually on a diet.

I don't count calories and I cannot recall the last time I was on a scale that was not at the doctors office.

I monitor my caloric intake by intuition - and how tight my pants are

I've had the same size pants for 10+ years and they are 1 size up from the previous 10 years.

I feel like holidays are a lot less fun if you're on a diet! Food and family are some of the best things about the holidays. As others have said, I'm not on a diet, but I do tend to eat a bit more around the holidays.

In don't diet I just try to watch what I eat. But that time of year I usually slip up.

I don't diet at all. My eating habits don't change much around the holidays though, because I don't like most holiday food at all.
