There's no denying that the holidays have arrived. Lights have been lit, gifts are being bought and holiday treats are everywhere. It's no secret that most people gain 3 to 7 kilos over the next couple of months. With all the parties, special meals and edible gifts, weight gain is pretty much inevitable...right? Wrong. I've come up with a survival strategy to keep holiday kilos from making a permanent home on your hips. This strategy is very simple. I'm not expecting you to have the time to log all your calories or eat every meal at home. We are going to be realistic... Golden Tip to Avoid Holiday Kilos: Spend the next 4 weeks eating healthy 80% of the time, with exceptions only 20% of the time. You and I know that Chrissy Kilos are caused by eating too many foods that are high in calories, carbohydrates and simple sugars. You can avoid all that by sticking with a plan created especially for this time of year, one which still keeps things fun by allowing for small exceptions and healthier alternatives. This is an example of what you would eat... As many fresh and fiber-filled vegetables as you want. Load up on salads. Enjoy vegetable side dishes. Lots of lean, protein-filled meats and eggs. Stick with meat that has been roasted, barbequed or grilled. Avoid fried meats and eggs. Fruits, nuts and seeds in moderation Fresh fruit for a delicious dessert. A handful of nuts or seeds for a snack. Don't eat dried fruits Then enjoy small exceptions... Bread or grain products: No larger than the size of your hand. Baked goods: Should fit into the palm of your hand (not the size of your entire hand;) Lollies: The less the better. Holiday drinks: less than 200ml This plan works because it allows you to indulge in exceptions a fifth of the time. This encourages you to pick and choose the holiday cheat food that you really love, as opposed to feeling obligated to eat everything in sight. When you navigate the buffet line at your next holiday party, feel confident knowing that you have a game plan. Eat before you go then go with the veggies, lean meats and salads first, then pick out 2 small exceptions and savor those. Remember, I'm here to help you meet your fitness and weight loss goals so whilst highly paractical and useful this is just a small taste of what's contained in my new Chrissy Survival Guide being released soon. The guide contains quick and effective fat fighting workouts you don't need a gym for, comprehensive nutrition tips, recipes for tasty and healthy treats, even a blue print for your brain to avoid holiday burn out and more. The best part is this, 50% of the price of this great value guide will go to Charities who do so much good for less fortunate families each Christmas. We'll be announcing the release of this guide to the juggernauts first, if you have any friends or family that may be interested be sure to let them know by hitting the referral button at the top right of the newsletter today to get them started on a program that will turn their holiday weight gain into a holiday slim down.
