Weight Loss Tips On Holidays

Holidays - It's that time of the year again, when you spread the cheer and make merry. The festive season, the most wonderful time of the year, always fills everyone with glee other than our bodies. It is a known fact that most people gain the most weight during the holiday season. Celebrations are focused on food and everything sweet that the hands can reach. The stress and exhaustion of holiday shopping can even lead to emotional overeating. And the cold weather adds to it by nudging people to have high calorie comfort food.
Not only is this weight gain during the holiday season frustrating but also is a big concern for people with food related ailments. Let's not even begin to mention the amount of effort required, post the holidays, to shed the extra kilos gained during the season, for most of the people this is a nightmare!
The Happy Holiday Eating Tips
So is it possible to avoid this excess weight gain and still enjoy the holiday season without the guilt of over eating? It sure is! Here are a few tips that will help you keep your sanity and maintain (maybe even lose) your weight.
  1. Eat slowly and savour the flavours. The more you chew the food, the easier it gets for the stomach to digest it quickly.
  2. Kill the craving for sweets by enjoying 1-2 cookies (which will have no side effects). The more you try to avoid the cravings; chances are the more you will binge on other fat-laden options.
  3. Load yourself up with salads before heading out for that dinner party. If you have already filled part of your stomach with a healthier option, you will eat less of the unhealthy food.
  4. Create awareness about the food that trigger off binge eating. Once you are aware of which food causes you to overeat, consciously cut down on the intake by replacing it with a healthier option available.
  5. Take time out for yourself and release that holiday stress. The more stressed you feel, the more junk food you eat to calm your nerves. Get a massage or take a nice relaxing shower.
  6. Pile up your day with all kinds of vegetables you can. Steamed, sautéed, soup or stewed - increase the intake of vegetable during the meals that are not party invites. The fibre and essential minerals will help you in cleansing out the body and also provide you with the much needed nutrients.
  7. At parties, make sure your plate has all types of elements needed for a wholesome meal - irons, minerals, protein and calcium - and not just fried and sweetened elements.
  8. If possible carry at least one healthy food option with you to parties for everyone to share. That way how much ever unhealthy food is at the serving, you will at least have one good food to balance it out.
  9. Last but not the least, exercise. No matter how busy or stressful a day, don't miss out on your workout regime.
