Believe it or not, these hacks just might result in a few pounds lost before New Year’s…
Holiday-Proof Fat Loss Hack #1: Eat a sensible meal before the party.
It goes without saying that you should never arrive at parties in a ravenous hunger. I realize that this goes against the popular trend of starving yourself before a party, but that’s exactly why most people gain weight.
With your hunger in check, you’ll have the clarity to pick and choose the treats that you really want, rather than stuffing yourself with everything in sight.
Holiday-Proof Fat Loss Hack #2: Bring a healthy dish to share.
Even if the party that you’re going to isn’t a potluck—hostess gifts are thoughtful, and always appreciated. Plus, you’ll have brought a healthy option everyone can enjoy.
A roasted veggie salad, a hummus platter, or an arrangement of fresh fruit are all delicious, healthy dishes that are filled with fiber and would be a welcome addition to any holiday menu.
Holiday-Proof Fat Loss Hack #3: Never drink calories.
This one’s tough this time of year, but do you realize how quickly calories add up when you’re slurping them out of a cup? Alcoholic beverages and sweet holiday drinks are simply packed with calories. These calories don’t take up much room in your stomach so you’re left wide open for even more calories.
Your best strategy is to avoid these beverages altogether, but if you can’t, temper their effects by drinking sparkling (or plain) water. Aim to drink 1 glass of water immediately after every cocktail you consume at the party.
Holiday-Proof Fat Loss Hack #4: Fill your plate, but only once.
I’m certainly not going to tell you that you shouldn't eat anything at the party. By all means, It’s a party! By all means, go and fill up your plate - but only once.
That’s right, you heard me. No going back for seconds. Since you've already eaten a sensible meal before arriving, this rule is going to be easier to keep than you think.
Holiday-Proof Fat Loss Hack #5: Taste dessert, just a taste.
The holidays are all about sweet treats, so go ahead and partake. But just a taste. Look at desserts as something to savor, not something to fill up on. And since you ate a sensible meal before you came, then you filled up your dinner plate once you’re probably going to be pretty full at this point anyway.
That’s it—all you need to know to not gain a single pound at holiday parties.
So… what about the rest of the year?
Wouldn't you love to make 2015 the year that you transform your body?
Wouldn't it feel great to throw out all of your fat clothes? To look forward to bathing suit season? To be given a clean bill of health from your doctor? And to be showered with compliments by family, friends and that special someone?
It’s all more possible than you think.
