Budgeting Holiday Calories

Jeremiah Gums, M.D.
Internal Medicine


Around the holidays it's a good idea to think of calories like a budget.

So just like you budget your money, you want to budget your calories.

It's a good idea to spend those calories eating things that you really enjoy like a special homemade cookie recipe or a brownie recipe or something like that.

So this holiday season just remember you don't have to deprive yourself of those foods, just try not to overindulge and pick the foods that are very important to you.

Budgeting holiday calories can help avoid weight gain during the holidays. Dr. Jeremiah Gums​, Internist with Boys Town Internal Medicine, explains how you can make better choices this holiday season.​ ​​
