Some words about nutrition:
Nutrition is such a touchy subject for some people… People generally know what they should be doing but are constantly bombarded with confusing advice. Most people need to eat more healthy fats in their diets, it’s really good for improving good hormone profiles. Try to cook your own food as much as possible and buy things with one ingredient. For example, Potato, Broccoli, Steak, etc. The last part, and maybe most important is to not feel bad about indulging in good food. Having a positive relationship with food can sometimes be even more important in determining how your body responds to it than the food itself. If you’re going to have a cookie, just have it, but enjoy it and don’t feel bad about it.
It’s holiday fat gain season, a time when nearly everyone packs on a few pounds. Rather than joining the masses and loosening your belt another notch, use these 5 Holiday Fat Loss Hacks and avoid putting on a single pound.
Eat a sensible meal before the party.
Bring a healthy dish to share.
Never drink calories.
Fill your plate, but only once.
Taste dessert, just a taste.
That’s it—all you need to know to not gain a single pound at holiday parties. But what about the rest of the year? Wouldn’t you love to make 2015 the year that you transform your body? Wouldn’t it feel great to throw out all of your fat clothes? To look forward to bathing suit season? To be given a clean bill of health from your doctor? And to be showered with compliments by family, friends and that special someone? It’s all more possible than you think. But you’ll need to take massive action!
The holidays can become a stressful time, with places to go, presents to wrap and parties to plan. There is ample evidence that stress has a negative effect on your body and your metabolism. When your body is under stress it produces cortisol, a hormone related to the fight or flight response. This increase in cortisol causes weight gain, decreased metabolism and even depression.
This holiday season don’t let stress get the better of you. Give yourself time to relax – you’ll be leaner for it 🙂
