Of course not! No one plans for that. It just sort of happens.
Want to avoid those holiday pounds? Stay trim this holiday season with these 3 steps:
This holiday season try to re-focus your attention away from food and back on to what’s really important—friends, family, giving, and traditions. Stay focused on the reason for the season rather than the plate full of hors d'oeuvres in front of you.
2. Be Strategic
It’s important to use strategy when approaching the many celebrations held this time of year. Do not arrive at the party hungry. Instead, eat a small low-calorie snack ahead of time to prevent overeating.
Another idea is to chew gum before and after a meal, so you won’t be tempted to overindulge in appetizers and desserts.
Also, find room in your busy holiday schedule for exercise. This will help you fight off the extra weight trying to attach itself to your midsection and rear.
Enjoy the goodness of the season, but in moderation. Trim calories where you can by limiting your trimmings-cheeses, gravy, sauces, creams, and nuts.
Also, be sure to limit the amount of alcoholic beverages you drink. While you may not know it, they’re filled with calories, too. Try alternating an alcoholic drink with a non-alcoholic drink.
Remember that exercise is a huge part of the equation when it comes to achieving weight loss.
