Health Coach Q & A

What if family culture does a late night large meal at midnight Christmas Eve?

That’s a great question! Holiday meals related to religious, family, and cultural traditions can be big and indulgent. A large late-night meal at midnight Christmas Eve will probably involve extra calories, but there are some things you can do to support health. 

Here are some ideas.

  • If you have a meal at your usual dinner time (earlier in the evening), keep it a little smaller and include some vegetables and lean protein to keep blood sugar more stable and to reduce hunger.
  • Aim for smaller portions at your midnight meal.
  • Try to include healthy options like fruit and roasted vegetables.
  • Limit alcohol to improve sleep quality and reduce calories.
  • Sleep in as much as you can Christmas morning after the meal.
  • Go back to eating healthy the next day.

What if I have a question about how to tell the Lark app something?
