Weight Loss Tips This Holiday Season
The holiday season is here and it is impossible to say no to all the good food that is right in front of the table, especially this Thanksgiving Day. There is going to be a lot of carbs and dessert, which means get ready to pound in some calories. You don’t want to offend your family and not eat the food they have prepared. Eating like a bird is not exactly something anyone should do during big holiday festivities.
The good news is, go ahead and don’t worry about eating a lot this time. You can even consider it your cheat day. But if you want to maintain your dietary habits, here are some tips on how you could lose all the calories you ate during Thanksgiving and the like.
Eat Before the Big Dinner: Believe it or not, this will do the trick. Munch in some little snack every now and then before the huge dinner comes and you will find yourself not eating a lot by the time you see all the good looking food is on the table. You can also opt to eat a light soup just about an hour the celebratory dinner and you will find yourself eating moderately.
Dress Up: According to psychology, if you dress up wearing something nice, you will end up not bingeing during Thanksgiving dinner. The rationale behind this is the fact that you would be conscious of what you eat and wouldn’t want to ruin what you look like in a gorgeous outfit. If you eat with your sweatpants and baggy shirts, you are one step closer to letting yourself go.
One Portion At A Time: This is another trick that would help you not indulge much on heavy and fatty foods. Just take one portion of each and everything that is on the table. Treat it like a free-taste buffet and you will notice that you will get full easily.
Be A Picky Eater: This is the time of the year where you can be picky with food. Before the huge dinner, imagine what you want to eat and if you don’t see that on the table, you don’t have to force yourself and eat anything that would replace what you had in mind. This will also save you from getting big.
Alcohol Versus Soda: Once you are on the table, pick only one choice of drink. Make up your mind between alcoholic beverages or drinks with sugar. Do not consume both especially if it is beer and soda. It doesn’t matter if it is a diet soda, there is still sugar in there and it could ruin your diet.
Before facing the table to be thankful for everything in your life, consider these diet hacks so you won’t just end up eating like a baby dinosaur the whole time. Through this tips, you would still enjoy the family dinner without being guilty in ruining your diet plans.
