Want To Stay In Shape During The Holidays? These Images Show Exactly How Much Of Each Food You Need To Consume

Go easy on that eggnog.

Before you start calling us grinchy, know we are no different than everybody else. Our Christmas dinners include but are never limited to sampling all the stuff that is on the table (several times, at least) and trying to keep it together in front of our nosy relatives.

However, one thing we are really tired of is that feeling of guilt and regret when we step on the scales after the holidays and they're like: KAPOW! 

See, Joey gets it.

So this year we decided to try something new and unexplored.

Folks at Calorific, an extremely simple dieting app, did a great job preparing  this cheat sheet which visualizes what 200 calories of every Christmas food look like. 

It's important to be informed about what you're eating so that you can make the choices that are right for your body. And with the cheat sheet, you can make the perfect holiday menu without being too harsh on yourself (or feeling like you have to buy a 24/7 gym membership). 

Either way, we're confident you'll sparkle in that super tight dress you bought for New Year's Eve. You go, girl.
