Doesn’t it seem as if the holidays are coming faster and faster each year? It’s also the season where the pounds are quickly packed on and waistlines tend to expand, which makes it feel as if you can never truly lose the weight. All the added calories and unhealthy holiday eating and partying only leads to panic and unhappiness after the holidays. Rather than dealing with the sudden panic in January, try starting your holiday weight loss plan now.
Dump the Sugar
If you’re looking to lose a few pounds before the holidays, it starts with your diet. Sugars are empty calories that don’t have any nutritional value. Cut back on the sugar before the holidays to help you lose pounds now. Then once the holidays hit, try to resist as much as you can. It will only help you in the long run.
Green veggies are especially good if you’re trying to lose some weight, they’re packed with vitamins, and they give your metabolism a boost.
Pack on the Protein
Protein helps build muscles and muscles help burn fat. Before the holidays, start eating fish and lean meats such as chicken breast and turkey. Eggs are also a good source of protein.
Keep Track of Your Health
There are so many fitness and health apps on the market that it makes tracking your activity and calories easy. If you’re serious about losing weight, keeping track of your fitness will help motivate you to meet your goals and not get off track during the season of temptation.
Regular exercise is crucial and will provide the ultimate benefit to a healthier lifestyle. Get to the gym regularly, set goals for yourself and workout. Hiring a personal trainer can help you meet your goals fast with customized, efficient, fat burning exercises.
