How To Eat During The Holidays
I have heard all the stats about how most people gains at least five pounds during the holidays. Here’s a staggering stat: people eat nearly 4500 calories on Thanksgiving alone!
However, there’s another thing to think about:
Thanksgiving is not the culprit and neither is Christmas.
It’s the days in between the holidays: All the Christmas parties and office parties.
Well, you are obviously looking to do something different because you’re reading this. So, here are some ideas for keeping your trim figure that you’ve worked so hard for…or ready to start working for.
- Eat with your non-dominant hand. Odd, right? Well, think about this, you have to concentrate on using your non-dominant hand (right for me), and you eat slower. If you eat slower then, guess what? You’ll eat less. When you eat less, you’ll still fit into your skinny jeans. Speaking of which…
- Wear your skinny jean to the Christmas parties. Yep, weird tip number 2. If you wear your skinny clothes to the party, you are going to be less likely to overeat because when you overeat your stomach expands. Wearing your skinny jeans prevents that. Guys don’t wear “skinny jeans” so in this case make sure you leave the elastic band pants at home and wear something that fits…something my fiancée gets on me about. I’m some of you guys can relate.
- Eat a healthy meal before you leave for the party. This one is a two-fold solution. One, if you’re going out to eat, this saves you money that you could use to buy Christmas presents. Also, this helps you save calories because you’re already full from eating at home. Even if you do eat, it will be less. Especially if you’re following the previously mentioned steps.
There ya go! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section. If you’re looking to make some changes in your body, and want to get a head start, let me know that too!
