8 Ways to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
The holidays are one of the best times of year, but if you’re not careful, you can pack on the pounds. Studies show that the average American gains anywhere between 5 and 10 pounds this time of year. If you want to avoid falling prey to that stat, try some of my favorites tips for keeping holiday weight gain at bay.
1. Stick to Your Exercise Routine
The holidays are the busiest time of year, but while it’s tempting to forgo your workouts, this is the worst thing you can do. Schedule each workout like an appointment and stick to it no matter what. If anything, you should increase your physical activity to compensate for some of the extra calories you may consume. In addition, stick to your facial exercises to maintain those results you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
2. Dry Brush
Dry brushing is fundamental because it boosts circulation to boost your overall glow and stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps rid your body of toxins. Keep it up during the holidays and your skin will look luminous.
3. Avoid Carbs After 5 pm
I live by this rule and promote it for those trying to lose weight and enhance their results from No Lipo Lipo. It especially helps this time of year, when temptation is upon us. Fill up on veggies, lean protein and fiber-rich foods so that you aren’t tempted to consume fattening simple carbs.
4. Don’t Go Anywhere Hungry
Stick to your normal meal routine and don’t skip meals so that you can eat more at a holiday meal or event. This leads to a sluggish metabolism and will result in you overeating later on in the day or at the event.
5. Do No Lipo Lipo
Whether you’re already using this revolutionary body sculpting technique or are just starting, this is the perfect time of year to employ it. It’s part of my own beauty and antiaging triple threat that also includes facial exercises and dry brushing.
6. Slow it Down
When you hit those holiday festivities, eat very slowly. Savor each bite so that your stomach has time to signal your brain that it’s full, which usually takes about 20 minutes.
7. Use Small Plates
At those buffet-style events, opt for appetizer and salad plates instead of full dinner plates. You’ll fill up on less food and it will slow your eating down overall.
8. Re-gift Treats
If you receive loads of food baskets and treats this time of year, bring them to the office or re-gift them to someone who is not so fortunate.
