How can I stay lean and even lose weight throughout the holiday season?
Here are some of the strategies I use which you can easily implement to your lifestyle to get through the holidays like a champ! :
1.) Never show up hungry. I usually will eat a healthy meal before I leave for a party or event so that when I am there, I am not there to eat. I am there for the true purpose of socializing and celebrating the event.
2.) I create my rules before getting out of my car. If I choose to drink I say to myself, “ I will have 1 or 2 glasses of...”, “If I choose to eat, I will only eat...”, “I will stay away from...” The choices become very clear if you stick to your plan.
3.) I focus on eating nutrient dense foods, and stay away from calorie dense foods. If you chose to eat at a party, then have a bite, wait 5 minutes, and have another bite. No one is forcing you to eat everything in front of you and gorging yourself.
4.) I put in extra effort at home to eat healthy knowing that I am adding extra calories at a party, so eat extra clean at home.
5.) I implement intermittent fasting into my week, enjoying the empty feeling and allowing my body time to process everything fully before adding more.
6.) Plan to workout the day of and the day after the party and drink plenty of water. For every unit of alcohol consumed, drink 2-3 glasses of water or seltzer.
