Calories: Bah! Humbug!

Delicious holiday cocktails, indulgent hors d’oeuvres and decadent desserts. The holiday season is in full swing, and the numbers on the scale may be, too. Here’s what it takes to keep calories in check.

First, let’s be clear. It’s OK to splurge a little (or a lot) during the holidays. A day or two here and there won’t crash your diet. Yet, it’s helpful to have an idea of how many calories you’re consuming, and how to keep your healthy eating plans merry and bright.

Calories Moderate-to-Intense Cardio (minutes)
Beer (pint) 245 25
Candy cane 60 1
Eggnog (1 cup) 224 (plain);
322 (spiked)
40-60
Hot Cocoa (1 cup) 192 (plain);
312 (spiked)
16-26
Mocha With a Glazed Donut 650 75
Sugar cookie (basic) 112 20
Wine (5 oz.) With Cheesecake (1 slice) 480 55
