Lifestyle 5 Steps to Prevent Weight Gain Over the Holidays

The holidays seem to be where we all gain a few extra pounds from all the festivities and feasts. Prevent weight gain and don’t let this year’s holidays ruin your health goal!

5 steps to keeping off the holiday weight

Use these 5 tips to prevent weight gain over the holidays:

1. A short workout in the morning can lead to huge benefits later in the day

I’ve looked all over for a simple/ workout for everyone to do, and I found it here.  On the day of your feast, perform this workout first thing in the morning to put your metabolism into overdrive for the rest of the day. A faster metabolism means calories burn at a faster rate. Find the workout here.

2. Having a high protein breakfast before your big feast can help prevent weight gain

When you eat a lot of protein, you tend to be fuller for longer, burn more calories, and even preventing muscle breakdown. Learn more about a high protein breakfast here.  You can also apply this technique to the actual meal, all you have to do is eat all the protein on your plate prior to the other foods.

3. Now you can’t just show up empty handed right?

4. Alright, you had your meal and I hope you enjoyed it cause you need to get back on track for your health goal.

After you had your fill of your favorite foods, its time to give away all the leftovers. If you have it in the house, you’re going to be tempted to continue to eat it.

Get rid of the temptation and continue your health goal.
