WASHINGTON, DC. - Personal trainer Emily Newman knows a thing or two about maintaining fitness and health over the holidays—she’s been a trainer with Onelife Fitness Skyline in Falls Church for over 16 years, counts her macros, and sees around six clients per day, plus is certified across the board to train on hardcore stuff like kettlebells.

When it comes to eggnog-fueled gatherings, Newman relies on intuitive eating. “Be mindful of how you want to feel before you eat. I can remember a Thanksgiving where I felt so bloated I almost had to unzip my pants,” she says. “The true meaning of the holiday meal is to be social with friends and family and enjoy everyone’s company… There is no reason to miss out on anything, but also no reason to go overboard, either.”

Here are Newman’s pro tips for staying on track during the most gluttonous time of the year.
