If you are on a weight loss program and find it difficult to resist temptation ,the easierst thing to do is to remove yourself from the situation.
One little cookie won’t do much damage, eh? Well, did you realize that one little cookie a day for a month can add an extra pound to your weight? Well, the temptation of those mouth-watering treats and sumptuous dinners can be a little overwhelming at time, and here’s how you can keep yourself glued to your weight loss goals during the holiday season.
Never Skip Meals. This is the best formula to get you grouchy, feeling tired and hungry all the time. If you think skipping a few meals can make up for your intentions to splurge on those tasty holiday meals, you are dead wrong! What will be more likely to happen is it will turn you into a voracious eating monster during the festive season and end up feeling bloated and with a lot more calories than you could have do without if you weren’t so hungry.
You must eat before the party. It is a good idea to snack before the party, and select a high fiber meal. Adding lots of fiber to your diet will help make you feel full so you’re less likely to binge on all the sweets and high calorie holiday goodies.
Keep away from the buffet table. Resisting a wonderful looking dish can be hard enough, but smelling it can break the toughest of willpowers. Choose a healthy helping of those foods you need-the salads the fruits and a snack or two and move away from the table as fast as you can. At times when you are about to give in to those urges to eat, it helps to distract yourself by participating in a conversation that is of great interest to you.
Drink water. Water is essential to any weight loss program, not only because it keeps you from dehydrating, it also keeps hunger under control by helping you feel full. Try to drink plenty of them over the course of the party in order to avoid hunger-they’ll fill your stomach and kill your desire to binge on the food. Water helps you jolt your metabolic rate and flush away the fats.
A Good Amount of Exercise. Exercise is very crucial to keeping your metabolism raised up and the adrenalin going so you don’t have to turn to food to feel good. Don’t let the holiday season hold you back from exercising. This is the worst excuse to have for not exercising.
