4 Highly Effective Strategies to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
- Posted on: Dec 22 2012
Apart from the unlimited pouring of snow and gifts, the holidays almost always equate to sinfully delicious meals. If you’re not really careful with what you eat, the extra calories could translate into additional inches on your waistline. If you’re still caught with the extra baggage even after exercise and some lifestyle revisions, consider Dr. York Yates expertise in any Salt Lake City body contouring procedure. It could be a tummy tuck, liposuction or brachioplasty.
Some quick tips on how to avoid the beer bellies and love handles this holiday season are provided below.
1. Never attend a party with an empty stomach.
An empty stomach will only drive you to eat more, thus gaining more weight. If you do arrive famished, try to drink water first before hitting the buffet.
2. Use the smallest plate possible.
To avoid stacking on too much food, go for the smallest plate.
3. Take your time in eating your meals.
Chew at a leisurely pace. You’ll be surprised to find out that you haven’t really eaten that much if you simply take your time eating. An additional tip would be putting your utensils down in between bites.
4. Remind yourself that the holidays are not just about the food.
There’s more to the holidays than food. Apart from looking forward to what will be served during parties or gatherings, look forward to the people you’ll meet instead — from relatives you haven’t seen for a long time to meeting new friends.
