7 Simple Tips to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

By Chalene Johnson

1. Drink less. Avoid calorie-laden beverages like alcohol, egg nog,

peppermint lattes and hot chocolate. Permanently attach a bottle of water to

your hand from Thanksgiving until January 1st. One cocktail is fine. But keep in

mind, alcohol usually makes you less attractive, less articulate, less

responsible, and more likely to overeat. Cheers!

2. Bake less. One of the sneakiest ways calories creep up on us is via

the mixing bowl! Avoid volunteering to bake your famous snicker doodle

cheesecake and you'll instantly cut down on unneeded stress and calories.

3. Be fashionably late. This accomplishes two things. One, the less time

you spend at the party, the less time you spend with a plate of cheese stuffed

mini-quiche and uncomfortable small talk with the boss. Two, the more guests

there before you, the less food available when you arrive.

4. Throw away leftovers. I know your Mother would "gasp at such a

wasteful suggestion. I'll let you in on a little secret, that half-eaten pumpkin

pie is not exactly what the local food bank had in mind. Toss it and get over

it. Your neighbor brings over a delicious plate of cookies. Take a nibble and

toss the rest! She'll never know the difference and your thighs will thank you.

5. Amp up your workouts. Many Americans excuse themselves from healthy

eating and regular workouts because, "it's that time of year". Poor choice.

Rather than skipping workouts, intensify yours. Holidays are when you really

need the mood enhancing, stress busting effects of exercise more than ever. You

deserve it. You'll be more proficient because of it, so make time to do it!

6. Enjoy a taste. Some do well by swearing off "forbidden foods, but for

many of us that notion only leads to bingeing or a feeling of deprivation. If

that's the case, allow yourself the treat, just make it a small portion and

account for it during your next Cardio Party!.

7. Scrap the "dieters mentality". I forbid you to say these 5 little

words ever again, "I'm starting my diet tomorrow." This mentality leads people

to believe that healthy eating is all or nothing. Have a cookie or two, but

catch yourself before you slip into the "Oh, I've blown it so now I might as

well have 10 more! way of thinking. That mentality is the root of all yo-yo

dieting. Think of your eating as a way of life, not a diet. Enjoy the occasional

treat, but do so in moderation.
