5 Foolproof Ways To Reverse Holiday Weight Gain
With all the seasonal pressure coming up, indulging on good food may be a difficult temptation to avoid. And although the holiday season may not be the best time to lose weight, these 5 steps could easily help you maintain your current weight or even end up weighing less without the stress.
Flush away bloat
Some of the weight we gain throughout the holiday season is just because we feel bloated.
By staying hydrated, you can easily flush some of the extra sodium and bloat from the body, and avoid getting false hunger cues.
Incorporate fresh plants to your meal
Start your day with veggies and eggs, have a salad at lunch, or at least eat one vegetable for dinner.
Incorporating veggies throughout the day is really important, as it’ll keep you full and satiated. Vegetables are high in fiber and very low in calories!
Focus on complex carbs
Stay away from items that have low nutritional value like cookies, cakes, bagels, baked goods, cereals, syrups, and soda. Instead, focus on brown foods like whole wheat, farro, quinoa, and brown rice.
Keep your drinks “clean”
All those festive holiday coffee drinks and cocktails contain a lot of sugar! Cutting alcohol is also a great way to reduce calories.
Snacking throughout the day can help keep your energy up, and your blood sugar levels steady. However, skip the processed and packaged snacks as these have a lot of sugar, salt, and additives.
Plan snacks ahead of time and choose fresh or dried fruits, cheese, raw vegetables, nuts or nut butter, hard-boiled eggs, whole grain crackers, and hummus.
