The Holiday and weight gain season is right around the corner starting with Halloween and ending with New Year’s.
Here are some tips that will help you to lose or maintain your weight during this eating-fest time of the year.
This is the start of the sugar binging and weight gain season.
Tip: Do not buy candy you like so you will not eat what is leftover. So if you like peanut butter then do not buy candy with peanut butter in them or you like chocolate then buy hard candy.
Everyone blames the poor turkey for making them tired and lazy after they eat but the blame really needs to shift to all the starchy carbs being consumed like sweet potatoes, dressing, mashed potatoes, rolls, and pumpkin pie.
Tip: Focus on eating more non-starchy veggies like green salads, carrots, celery (not stuffed with cheese cream or peanut butter), and cucumbers.
This is when things can really get out of control. By the time most of us get to the Holiday party season we are stressed or burned out, maybe emotionally eating, maybe drinking more than usual, or maybe just in a funk.
Tips: Start doing movement or exercise daily to help raise your serotonin and dopamine levels. Eat before you go to a party so you won’t be as tempted to eat food layer in fat, salt and sugar. Drink a glass of water in between your drinks to minimize the effects of alcohol on your body like converting it directly to belly fat.
We at Discover Optimal Wellness hope these tips will help you maintain or lose weight during the Holiday Season.

Have a safe and happy Holiday Season!!
The days are counting down to Christmas, but for many of us that means the pounds are counting up! Oh no! The holidays are difficult for even the most strong-willed, health-conscious bodybuilder, much less for the every day person!
At Discover Optimal Wellness we have compiled a list of gifts that you could put under your tree this year, for yourself and for your family and friends, that will give you a head start on those New Year's Resolutions.
We want to give a special congratulations to everyone going through the program right now! You are a superstar! This experience will make the rest of the year a piece of...apple!
Before you read further, really think about the people you're gifting this season. What kinds of health goals have they confided about with you? We never want to force our friends or family into a lifestyle they're not ready for, and we don't want to be accused of calling anyone overweight or unhealthy!
Ok, now you're ready. Look at the list and think about what would your gift recipients LOVE, rather than what you think they really need! We are all moving toward wellness at our own pace! Also, note that many of these gifts are intended for children and teenagers (but please feel free to be young at heart!).
Great Gifts that will help you and yours Discover Optimal Wellness:
We are also happy to put together a gift package for your friend or family member that includes recipes and coaching and much more! Please contact us for more information.
