This year, Transitions Lifestyle System is helping you to win the battle against holiday weight gain. During the holiday season, it is important to stay on top of your exercise and keep track of the foods you eat. Yes, that means even the pecan pie! And flipping channels on the TV remote is not exercise!
Here are some tips and tricks from Transitions Lifestyle System that can help you keep the weight off during the holidays:

  1. Enjoy an ExtendBar 30 minutes before a meal or before a holiday gathering. We often eat faster and more when we are hungry, so a quick snack is perfect for controlling your appetite.
  2. Take your favorite low-glycemic recipe to the holiday party (others will be thankful too).
  3. Park your car further away when you’re headed into stores during holiday shopping. This will help you get in some extra steps for a light and easy workout.
  4. Make sure to get plenty of rest. Rest can help your body recover and will help make sure you’re not overly stressed, which can impact your weight management goals.
  5. If you must indulge in a holiday cocktail, skip the eggnog and opt for a spritzer with sugar free tonic water. It’s been shown that people who are overweight actually gain weight more easily when they consume alcohol.
  6. Drink plenty of water. Alcohol and coffee can dehydrate your body.
  7. When at the dinner table – pace yourself. Put your fork down between each bite.
  8. Limit taste tests while cooking. Those extra spoonfuls can add up quickly, especially if you’re preparing a large meal.
  9. Make sure to take a break for exercise, even if it is only a walk. Grab a family member for some company so it won’t seem like you are leaving the festivities
  10. Watch out for sauces and dips – cream-based items can add extra pounds quickly. Instead, opt for healthier alternatives, some of which can be found on the Transitions Lifestyle System website Recipes section.

These tips and tricks will help you survive the holidays and keep them from wrecking havoc on your waistline. Did we miss something? Let us know your favorite tips to have a healthy and happy holiday.
