How To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
Posted on: 31 December 2016 by Shari Pelham
It have been learnt that making a few things non-negotiable upon return is the key to looking and feeling better quickly!
Since you have probably been eating more than you normally do, simply returning to your normal eating habit will help cut all the excess calories.
During the holidays, weight gaining is not a big dilemma. There is no need to complicate weight loss as it's simple: burn more calories than you take in.
Do not use HOT tea water as it will kill all the nutrients of the fruits you eat.
Here are some tips to lose weight post vacations effortlessly:
People often mistake thirst for hunger, so next time you feel hunger pangs, reach for water first. Drinking also helps you feel full.
Some experts suggest sipping water (or iced tea) just before you sit down to a meal is ideal. Continue drinking as you eat to add volume and weight to your meal.
Make weekly resolutions
Don't try to overhaul your diet overnight. If you make too many changes at once, chances are you'll get frustrated and throw in the towel.
Instead, make one change, such as eating at least one piece of fruit daily, every week.
Take one-third off
When you dine out, reduce the temptation to clean your plate by setting aside one-third of your meal.
Ask the server for a doggie bag and take it home for lunch the next day. Try serving yourself one-third less at home too.
This simple example tactic could subtract more than 500 calories a day.
Don't just eat - 'Dine'
Eating on the run or in front of the television invites mindless munching. Instead, set the table every time you eat.
Make a conscious choice to sit down and savor every bite. Placing a portion of chips on your best china helps focus your attention so you don't eat the whole bag.
