  • As the holidays are approaching, visions of sugarplums may be dancing in your head. From

  • pies to cookies, the list of delectable holiday treats goes on and on. But traditional holiday

  • fare is often far from health-conscious. And while one or two sweet indulgences may not

  • be detrimental to your waistline or long-term health, balance is key. Making healthier choices

  • this holiday season could mean the difference between a satisfying treat and unbuttoned

  • jeans. Watch on to learn about our top 6 desserts to avoid this season..

  • 1. Apple Pie

  • Between the sugary filling and processed pie crust, this dessert can be somewhat of a wolf

  • in sheep’s clothing. A typical slice of apple pie contains between 300 and 400 calories,

  • 20 grams of fat and up to 20 grams of sugarand that’s if you don’t go back for

  • seconds!

  • 2. Pecan Pie

  • While this treat has been gracing holiday tables for decades - a single slice can contain

  • more than 500 calories, 27 grams of fat and 31 grams of sugar. Ouch. Although the impressive

  • calorie count could deter even the most passionate of pie lovers, the real danger here is the

  • sugar and fat content. At around 300 calories, pumpkin pie is a better choice.

  • 3. Cookies

  • Where there’s an abundance of cookies, most don’t stick with just one. If portion control

  • isn’t your strong suit, stick to healthier options like a handful of dark chocolate almonds,

  • which can provide heart-healthy antioxidants. If you can’t help but give in to the call

  • of the cookie, try making a batch yourself with healthy substitutions.

  • 4. Fudge

  • Chocolate lovers nationwide know that holiday season means fudge season. But at 5 grams

  • of fat per ounce, if youre unable to stick to a small serving, it may be wise to skip

  • the fudge altogether and opt for chocolate frozen yogurt instead.

  • 5. Cheesecake

  • A typical piece of cheesecake contains more than 250 calories and a whopping 18 grams

  • of fat. The danger in this dessert is the amount of saturated fat hiding in each slice

  • at almost 10 grams! While not all fat is bad, saturated fat can raise your cholesterol,

  • which can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

  • 6. Pumpkin Roll

  • Pumpkin desserts are seasonal, so many indulge while they can on high-calorie, high-fat versions.

  • But there’s a way to have your cake and eat it toowithout cake even coming into

  • the equation! Opt for pumpkin custard to get that sweet, seasonal taste. At around 200

  • calories per serving, this treat’s creamy texture will leave you satisfied.

  • It can be easy for your diet goals to go out the window when you see plates of decadent

  • holiday desserts. The key to making it to the new year in a healthy way lies in your

  • habits. Stay active and make a healthy holiday plan - by going into the season with a plan,

  • youll worry less about what’s on your plate and more about spending time with family

  • and friendswhich is the real reason for the season!
