TIPS FOR HOLIDAY EATING…

by

Ladies,

It’s unavoidable – work luncheons, boxes of chocolate everywhere you turn, family parties, traveling…. the temptation of eating is EVERYWHERE in December!

IN THE UNITED STATES, HALF OF ALL ANNUAL WEIGHT GAIN OCCURS DURING THE HOLIDAY PERIOD.

Ok, so let’s establish that few people are watching their waistlines between now and January 1st.  The least I can offer you to help the excess weight gain is this:

If you’re going to eat, CONTROL THE CARBS!
CARBOHYDRATES, although necessary, are what contribute to most of the weight gain, so eat them strategically over the the holidays.  Don’t deprive yourself, just take in smaller portions.

Examples…

  1.  Load up on meat/chicken/fish and vegetables – and less rice or potato.

  2. Dessert – you see a variety of sweets that you like?  Take a bite size serving of each.  All you need is a taste right??   I mean think about it…  why waste your calories on something that has absolutely no nutritional value?

  3. Drink of choice – WATER.  Would you rather eat the calories or drink them?  Plus, what better way to wash everything down and stay refreshed.

  4. Don’t eat until you feel sick – GEEZ!  Eating is for energy! Remind yourself that eating is about fuel, it’s about providing our bodies with the nutrients and energy needed to be productive as we move and think.  We don’t need much!  Don’t overfill the tank to the point where you’re sluggish and uncomfortable.

    DON’T BE THIS GUY!
