How to Survive Holiday Weight Gain
Halloween candy, Thanksgiving dinner, holiday cookies and treats- it seems almost impossible to avoid weight gain during the holidays. Going into the holiday season, here at Core Products
your health is our concern. Obesity is a major epidemic in the U.S. and most are finding it difficult to maintain an ideal weight. The temptations during the holidays only contribute to this problem, so it’s best to get a plan in action now to avoid those excess calories. Being overweight causes many health problems and is a major contributor to back pain
which plagues many.
Here are some steps to take now to avoid having to work off those extra lbs later.
Set a plan now for how you will limit excess calories. Perhaps increase your workout routine to account for the extra temptations, or vow to give up one of your favorite indulgences for the season.
-Eat Before a Party
If you are going to be attending a holiday party, it’s best to eat protein before you leave the house. Have a handful of almonds, this will tide you over and may even give you the power to resist the bread basket.
-Trade Water for Alcohol
Holiday parties are notorious for “drinking holiday cheer.” Alcoholic beverages are full of empty calories. Staying hydrated with lots of water will not only keep you away from the cocktails but it may also make you less inclined to indulge at dinner.
Holiday weight gain is definitely a concern for many- but having fun should also be a priority. Enjoying time with family and friends is priceless, but you can have just as good of a time without sampling everything on the dessert tray! Core Products
wishes everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!
