Holiday season is a season of happiness as well as sadness! We are happy because finally we are able to take a break from our daily grunt work and meet our family and enjoy some quality time with them, but we are also sad at the same time because of the approaching holiday weight gain! After all, with all the delicious snacks and drinks we get to taste during this season, who could avoid weight gain?
But it doesn’t have to be like this! There are ways you could prevent weight gain during this time! If you are wondering how that is possible, I am going to discuss it in this article!
1. Don’t quit your exercise program: As the holiday season approaches, some people avoid workouts out of laziness; they prefer to have a nice time at home instead! Others avoid exercises because they don’t want to venture out in the cold. Keep in mind that you don’t need to hit the gym everyday to keep the pounds away, nor is it necessary to spend hours upon hours on exercises in order to keep the weight away!
Do you know that there are simple exercises you can do at home to keep the pounds away! Even better, focus only on those home workouts which won’t require you to spend more than 2 hours per week! Yep, you heard me right: there are special intense exercises which would help you burn a lot of calories within a very short time!
Now you simply don’t have any excuse left for not doing your regular workouts!
2. Don’t skip meals: Most people believe that skipping meals is the best way to lose a lot of pounds quickly or avoid weight gain! I tell you what, this is completely bizarre thinking! In fact, if you skip your meals, especially breakfast, you would be hungry throughout the day. And when you are on a hungry stomach craving for food, it is much easier to stuff yourself with junk foods than otherwise! As you can see, skipping meals is not a very wise on your part!
3. Prepare your eating plan before attending a party: At holiday parties it is pretty hard to avoid junk food cravings, what with so many tempting foods floating all around, right? Wrong! If you exercise self-discipline and prepare a list of foods you would be eating at the party in advance, it would be easier for you to control your junk food intake! If you have difficulty in preparing the food plan, you might want to consult with your nutritionist or doctor!
