PARTY PARTY PARTY! FOOD FOOD FOOD! EVERYWHERE!
let me guess.... out goes the gym, say good bye to your trainer, and HELLO happiness overload!
But what if I told you "you can have it all"
too good to be true?
You really Can!
With a few helpful tips, you can not gain those 5 extra pounds, avoid sugar crashes, and holiday hangovers!
HERE YOU GO:
1. Do not skip meals because you will eat lots later
One of the biggest mistakes I see people make is waiting to eat. Then when they get to the party they over indulge and give into urges they normally wouldn't even be tempted with.
Skipping meals all day slows down your metabolism and leaves your body feeling hungry even after you have eaten a sufficient amount of food. Unless your only goal is to be a cheap and possibly sloppy date...
2. Eat something healthy before you head to the party
Try to get in some fiber and protein so you will feel full heading into the party where most things will be simple carbs and empty calories anyway. That way you don't only eat things that will do nothing for you... like not even make you full until it is too late
3. Do indulge!
Once you get to the party don't tell yourself you can't have any of they beautiful and festive food, that will just leave you wanting it all night.... and eventually you will give in!
4. Pick 3 or 4 things you really want to try!
You already ate healthy so skip the veggie tray that you are going to saturate in dip anyway. Pick only a few things that you plan on actually eating. Stick to those choices the rest of the night. That way once you are full you will be able to tell because you wont want something you are full on.
5. Stick with what you pick
This goes for everything about the night. Stick to your 3 or 4 foods. Stick to your plan. Also, stick to your same drink. Just like the sweets if you switch from drink to drink you will not feel satisfied and end up going overboard. The end to too many sweet drinks is much worse than the end to too many sweets... trust me on that one!
Bonus: Don't over think it!
ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY, AND TRY NOT TO STRESS.... STRESS IS THE MOST TOXIC THING YOU CAN PUT IN YOUR BODY DURNING THE HOLIDAY SEASON. SO JUST BE MERRY!
