Holiday Gut Check
4 simple tips to avoid jelly belly
The coming holidays are a time for catching up with friends and family—and, of course, “catching up” inevitably means chowing down on mountains of food. But don’t resign yourself to a winter of baggy sweatshirts or wait until the ball drops to make a weight-loss resolution. Take a gut check today with these tips on eating healthy during the holidays (yes, it can be done).
1. Hit the Veggie Platter
Appetizers are a waist-wrecker at parties because they’re usually high in calories and so small that you can mindlessly pack away a half dozen before you’ve even said hello to the hosts. Stay away from the sugary and starchy stuff, and load up your plate with veggies and hummus instead of ranch dressing, and protein snacks, like pistachios and shrimp—they’ll help keep your calories down and keep you more full.
2. Talk More, Eat Less
Spend more time chatting and less time chewing at the dinner table. Take a few bites, then strike up a conversation with the person sitting next to you (please swallow first). Eat a healthy snack like some peanut butter on celery, or yogurt and string cheese an hour before the meal so you’re not ravenous, and slow down: A British study found fast-eating persons were 84 percent more likely to be overweight than slower eaters.
3. Shake Up Your Cheat Days
One cheat day a week is good for the body and mind. So be sure to make your big holiday meal your cheat day this week, and eat merry. It's the holidays, after all.
4.) Replace the sugar with all natural Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and Steviva Brand Stevia Powder.
Just doing this could save you nearly 20,000 calories over the holidays and this translates into over 5 lbs!
Have an excellent holiday season.
