Sweets! Honey-glazed ham! Candy cane truffles! Holiday food can inspire anxiety or ecstasy—or both—depending on your mind-set. Here’s the good news: The average weight gain for the holiday season is just one pound. Now for the bad: While that might not sound like much, research shows we don’t lose it, and that one pound adds up year after year… 

I know for me, and I’m sure for you as well, sweet treats and rich meals can be like landmines, yet we want to enjoy the Holidays and who wants to feel deprived during the hap- hap-iest season of all??!!  Seriously though…!? 

Here’s the good news…

 
➡️ THERE’S NO NEED TO FEAR WITH THESE FIVE EASY “DO LIFE FIT HOLIDAY SURVIVAL TIPS”! 👇👇👇

PACE YOURSELF: Your eyes are usually bigger than your stomach. Eat a small portion and then wait before diving in for seconds. As well pick only the foods that give you true enjoyment. If something doesn’t make you swoon, leave it on the sideline.

HYDRATE: A lot of times we mistake thirst for hunger. Drink a full glass of water between each helping of a meal for hydration and appetite control.

EXERCISE EARLY: That way, you ensure it doesn’t get pushed back by family plans or lack of energy. Plus, you’re more likely to make healthier choices after a nice sweaty workout. If time is limited, opt for a HIIT workout (They are super effective and quick!).

ONE IS ENOUGH: Don’t deprive yourself of the joy of the holidays. Indulge in dessert but remember that one is enough: Have one piece of pie – not three!

PLAN AHEAD: If you know your’ll be enjoying a high-calorie meal later in the day, eat light and healthy leading up to that meal. I usually will have my healthy Shake in the morning and sometime at lunch as well if I know I will be cheating later on!

My wish for you is that you enjoy your Holiday Season to the fullest! If you follow these 5 easy tips, you will feel a lot better with yourself once the holidays are all over and back to the regular routine!  

REMEMBER, IT’S EASY, IT’S FUN, IT’S DO LIFE FIT!!!
