Some people find that a diary can be very helpful over the holidays. When you keep a diary the whole effort is much more manageable because you have a record of what is working and how well you are doing. This will help you look back and find what really did the job for you and if you have a problem the diary will help to find where the problem started.
You should always plan meals in advance when you are involved in a weight control program. If you leave your menu to chance or to the last minute cravings of your empty stomach you will never be able to get the benefits of the healthy foods you should be incorporating into your diet. You need to plan for the foods that will help you feel full and give you the benefits of great nutrition. This won’t be an easy matter if you simply eat what ever you think might taste good when you get hungry.
No matter how tight your schedule seems to be at holiday time you always need to include exercise in your daily routine. Your body needs the benefit of the increased circulation that exercise provides. This can be a time period that should reduce stress for you as you concentrate on giving your body a good workout. It really is important that you take the time to get in some exercise and it doesn’t have to be at the gym. For some people it will be the time that they turn off the TV and get out for a brisk walk around the community.
The holidays are always the time that people tend to get off track and a try a little of this candy and maybe just a little of that new desert. This is certainly the place where a meal plan will help to keep you focused. You will need to keep a close watch on the sweets and keep them to a minimum. Always try to substitute healthier foods for those that contain too much fat and too much sugar. Snack on the foods that don’t have to be processed and don’t contain additives. They will be more filling and less fattening.
Start out your holiday season with positive plans and make sure you are comfortable with them. You know your going to look better and feel better if you keep the eating under control. A little snack in the afternoon should be just that (a little snack!) An evening meal should be according to your plan that you developed at the beginning of the week. Be sure to focus on the benefits of your plan and don’t worry about what you may have to do without.
Staying in control of your weight over the holidays can seem an overwhelming task but it will be much easier if you make a plan in advance and stick to it. Use the advice from this article to help you stay focused on a leaner, healthier diet for this holiday season.
