KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The holiday season is without question the most difficult time of year to shed a few pounds, especially if you’re a mom or dad who can burn in the kitchen. By the time you’ve finished sticking your big toe in the collard greens and macaroni and cheese, your willpower figures to put up a large “Do Not Disturb” sign while you’re snoring peacefully on the couch. Nevertheless, I’m here to say you don’t have to use the holidays as an excuse to sabotage your daily fitness goals.

Instead, if you’re really serious about meeting your weight loss expectations, please comply with the following set of health tips as you get your grub on between Thanksgiving and Christmas. TIP NO. 1 — Drink a large glass of water prior to eating. That way, you’ll feel full before you sit down to eat.

Remember, the holiday season isn’t about gorging. It’s more about absorbing nutrients and feeling satisfied. Downing plenty of H20 prior to food consumption equates to a very healthy start.

  1. That is very true!! MY mother lost ALOT of weight and a tip her weight loss counselor told her is that sometimes your mind will tell you your hungry but your really not, your actually just thirsty, so before you run to eat something, fill up a tall glass of water, drink the whole thing, wait a few minutes, THEN see how hungry you are! I always feel less hungry or not hungry at all.

  8. Awesome tips!
    What I also really like to do, whenever I’m eating at someone else’s home, is to bring a plate of salad and a bottle of my favorite tea already sweetened with stevia. That way, I know I’m gonna eat my happy veggies and don’t drink any sugary drinks!

  17. Hi,I’m returning vegan…forever due to high triglycerides. I was vegan for about four years and was in the best shape of my life.I felt great with tons of energy and my fibromyalgia was minimal. I was in remission also from rheumatoid arthritis. I started eating meat again because I felt obligated. no more unhealthy me!? I’m proud to return vegan again and love how I feel. Also, to keep my seizures down, I have to have a bit of healthy fats.not too much. my exercise includes walking my service dog daily. if it’s too cold and icy outside, we play ball in the halls.we live above a YMCA with free membership? how blessed is that!there is also a track I can walk my dog on upstairs.
