How To Stop Yourself Gaining Weight During The Holidays!

May 14, 2008
When the holiday season arrives, it seems wherever we go, we are surrounded by stacks of great tasting and very tempting food. For many people they succumb to the temptations and begin to stuff themselves silly and swear that after the holidays they will go on a diet to lose the many pounds they have gained. This article will show you how, with the right attitude, you can stop yourself from gaining weight during the holidays.

Firstly, try to keep away from all those fizzy drinks with tons of calories in them. Yes, I know it is not easy, but it is best to avoid sodas and colas at all costs. Stick to drinking water as not only is it good for you, but it will get your metabolism working great and actually help you lose weight.

If you need to satisfy your taste buds with something sweet, then it is best to eat a low calorie yogurt. It is filled with protein and that will also help you to lose weight. Eat lots if you want, you will not have to worry about putting on weight with low calorie yogurt.

Try to keep away from all that tempting food. Especially all the great tasting cookies your mother makes! Again, this is not easy to do, but if you give in to temptation you will begin to ruin all the hard work you have done in losing weight. You could try not looking at them, or moving away if a tray is brought in and placed in front of you. Keep determined at all times or you will succumb to temptation trust me!

Don't sit around after eating. Forget the TV. Go for a walk and suggest to your family that you should all go for a walk. If you just sit around and watch TV after eating you will not burn off the fat. Keep active at all times even if you have to do some exercises while watching TV.

Remember, you do not have to spend hours in the gym to maintain regular exercise. Short ten or fifteen minute walks after eating is all that is needed to stimulate your metabolism and get it burning that fat for you. No hard long visits to the gym are necessary so do not forget that. Just remember that every single exercise you do will help you keep off the weight and over time will help you to lose weight and keep it off forever.

You can avoid putting on weight during the holidays and still have fun at the same time. All it takes is a little determination and remember to exercise.
