πŸ† How to Master Thanksgiving and Christmas

If there is one thing that you learn from this, it’s that a few Holiday meals won’t break you. We are a product of the habits we practice consistently.

 

Feast Strategies

  • πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Plan a mini-workout a friend or family member! This is your secret weapon because it can make up for eating a little more. And of course, it’s a great way to start the day!

  • πŸ₯— Eat a “lighter” meal in the morning that’s full of protein and veggies. If you have company try this Sheet Pan Kale & Egg Bake or if you’re solo, opt for a simple Protein smoothie!

  • πŸ’¦ Drink plenty of water in the morning leading up to the big feast. And make sure to hydrate a few hours after the meal.

  • 🍽 Grab ONE plate and don’t plan for seconds.Β  Start with a couple of proteins, pile on the veggies (even it has sauce on top) and then 1-2 of your favorite carb-like sides. With a generous portion of protein and veggies on your plate, you will feel satisfied! See how to Holiday-proof your plate belowπŸ‘‡πŸΌ.

  • πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ DO NOT TRACK YOUR CALORIES!!! Take a break from it all, slow down and enjoy the company! Make memories and laugh – it burns more calories :).

    • If you want to monitor your calories and keep your calories in check (without counting them), create rules ahead of time.Β  If you get nervous or anxious about going to parties or special events, having some guidelines for how much you will eat is a great start! Ex. Limit yourself to one plate of whatever you want or even put a cap on the # of drinks you have.
  • πŸ₯§ Pick your FAVORITE dessert, not multiple. After you’ve cleaned your main plate, allow yourself a smaller plate of your dessert of choice. Choosing one vs. multiple will likely fill you up faster and leave you feeling less guilty.

  • πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈTake a walk post-meal. Instead of heading straight to the couch for your turkey coma ritual, take a leisure walk outside! This will help with digestion and blood flow.

  • ☝🏼 Expect a bump on the scale. If you plan on eating in a caloric surplus (more than what you would eat normally) this will naturally cause aΒ temporary increase due to water, food and gut content. Not to fret, this is NOT FAT.

 

And lastly,

ENJOY!
