This is a fear for many of my clients as they feel that Chanukah is the most difficult holiday to get through without gaining weight. There are eight consecutive nights of parties where tradition says to eat oil-drenched potatoes and oil-dipped dough. But did you also know that it’s not mandatory to partake in those traditions? They are exactly that, traditions, which you can easily suit to your plan. It’s not that you can’t have the less healthy options, but be smart about your choices and moderate them.
