Christmas season is finally here! With all the parties and delicious food, it will be very difficult to avoid the holiday weight gain. Self-discipline is key to help you stay in shape over the holiday season.
Here are simple tips to help you maintain your weight this season:
1. Eat in moderation.
Try not to eat too much. It is important to know when to stop to avoid overeating. Remember, overeating will lead to weight gain.
2. Eat slowly.
This will help you determine whether you have had enough to eat or not. According to research, it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to let you know you are full. That’s why it is important to listen to your body.
3. Eat healthy.
Make healthy food choices. Eat salad, vegetables, crackers and fruits instead of chips and other junk food.
4. Continue to Exercise.
Do not make parties as your excuse for not going to the gym. Set your goals and make it a point to find time to go to the gym. Regular exercise will not only help you lose or maintain your weight, it will also help you stay healthy and strong.
5. Do not skip meals.
Be sure to eat at least 3 regular meals and 2 snacks a day. Skipping meals will not help you lose weight as it may lead to overeating.
Have a joyous and a safe holiday season!
