Post Holiday Diet
Did you overeat these holidays? Holiday weight gain is real. In fact, study showed that the extra pounds you put on between Halloween and Christmas can take more than five months to lose. You will need a lot of will power to get back to eating right after spending the past few weeks filling up on holiday treats.
Take these tips if you’re looking to undo the damage of your holiday splurging and lose the holiday weight gain:
✓ Heap on the Healthy Meal
First, come to terms with the fact that the holiday is actually over and get back into the habit of regular grocery shopping for healthy ingredients to make nutritious, calorie-restricted meals. Try to focus on motivators for wanting to lose weight so you can be more mindful.
✓ Sweat It Out
You can’t expect to lose weight immediately through exercise. However, doing it will help give you cardiovascular strength, healthy bones, better sleep and stress levels which are the perfect antidote to holiday madness. Do something you enjoy and exercise to an extent that won’t make you stressed out. Your body, mind, and waistline will thank you.
If you want to release and flush out the toxins in your body, you need to make sure you’re getting a sufficient amount of water each day. The recommended amount is your weight divided in half and converted to ounces. For example, a 140 pound woman would want to drink 70 ounces of water a day, which amounts to just over 2 liters.
