The fall season has officially begun, the weather is a little cooler and the biggest holiday season approaches. You know what that means – FOOD FOOD AND MORE FOOD!
It’s not just any ‘ol food either, it’s the season of comfort eating. The food that makes you full, keeps you cuddled and adds to the calorie count. That summer body you worked so hard for is in a danger zone. (LOL) I don’t know about you, but eating is a great joy. This time of year is cooler so people eat and cuddle with their couches, beds and blankets.
Now the big question, is how to avoid gaining weight while still enjoying one of the perks of the holiday season?
Well I say to you, where there is a will there is a way!
To help us all out, here are a few tips that I have come across to keep the momentum of your weight loss or fitness goals. The good news is the tips are practical and these are things that you probably already are doing or have done.
Just a little discipline and willpower…
1.) Curve Your Appetite: Drink a bottle of water before you head to that dinner party or while you prepare that meal at home.
2.) Weighing In: Now I have read articles that state it’s a great idea to weigh in and others that say not so much. Personally I prefer to weigh in hardly ever. It’s a better surprise for me. I say do whatever works for you.
3.) Don’t Skip Your Workout: I know it’s cold out and if you workout outdoors it gets dark a bit sooner than summer months but turn your living room into a workout space. You can also join you local gym. Another option I have found to be cost effective and convenient is a local recreation center. According to health.com the best time to workout is in the morning.
“Exercising in the morning can help ensure better behavior all day long, according to a study published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise.” -health.com
4.) Moderation: I think this is pretty self explanatory. If you can use a smaller plate do so. While everyone uses the dessert plate to fix their cake, use yours for your meal.
5.) Take Your Time :No need to rush when eating your food, give your brain a chance to tell you that you are full. Some people wait all day to eat, that’s a bad idea! When you get the chance to eat you are “starving,” so you can’t wait to eat.
Disclaimer:I’m not expert or professional I definitely say consult with your doctor before going on any diets. This is just a list of things I have tried personally or people close to me have done.
Do you have any tips?
