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.
