We all know that holiday celebrations like Christmas and New Year’s Eve are something we can’t avoid in our lives. We are also aware of the fact that when it’s celebrations’ time we consume large quantities of food and we forget about the dietary plans we are on. Read on to find the perfect solution to keeping your slender figure after any celebration. One thing we need to take into account is that balance should be our ally. Put simply, you don’t have to crave for food; you can be on a diet and still reward yourself for your accomplishments. Moreover, it is important that you give your body what it needs, be it a well balanced diet or a training program, even when celebrations are round the corner. Remember that the best plan to do this is by having an encouraging approach. Another important thing to do is to stay away from promises. If you are on a diet you should stick to it as much as you can, especially during the upcoming holidays considering it’s now labor day.
Promising yourself that you will stop eating such thing in the next few weeks is not the right way to go about a diet. The only thing you do when you make promises (that you know will not be kept) is stress yourself through the holidays. Give yourself a treat but in a moderate way. Remember that your success depends exclusively on balance. Action plan: Get moving: during the holiday period you are likely to have more free time. Therefore, it is important that you keep your training program. Training will allow you to get rid of those extra calories you consumed. Moreover, your training program will also help you keep the right intake of food because you will energy. If you don’t like going to the gym, you can always go running or trekking. Nourishment: remember to stick to your dietary plan of six meals a day. When you eat more often your body does not crave for food, thus you eat less than when you leave out a meal. If you leave out meals your metabolic rate will go slower and you won’t be able to burn fat as quickly.
Although holidays can be a hard period for some people, all you need to do is continue with your dietary plan to provide your body with what it needs. Preparation: it is very common to know in advance what you will be doing during the holidays period. All you have to do is find low, mid and high calories meals and make sure that your high calories meals match the holidays. It is important that during subsequent days you consume low calories meals. Dos and don’ts: one important thing is not to eat meals that are unidentifiable. Make sure that your plate is full of vegetables but with new recipes. Remember to restrain from sugary drinks, fried food and desserts. However, keep in mind that you can reward yourself.
Another thing you should do is choose what you are going to eat wisely. Dry out: during the holiday period we tend to increase the intake of alcoholic beverages. Booze will certainly make you gain weight because it has a lot of sugar. The problem is that the more sugar you give your body, the more insulin it frees and the more fat you gain. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a glass of wine. Remember that this is all about balance. Most people seem to forget that the holiday period is to spend time with family and friends. Next time you celebrate something remember why you are doing so and enjoy the event as much as you can.
