Weight Loss Tips for Healthier Holidays

Measuring Tape and Holiday Candies

Fad diets, counting calories, and excluding real foods just isn’t the way to go if you want to lose weight. Instead, at the Metabolic Research Center, we focus on having a moderate, healthy approach to eating, which is why our weight loss system offers results. As the holidays come around, some moderation is one of the best ways to make sure you move forward towards your weight loss goals throughout the holidays. Make sure you have a healthy, happy holiday by keeping off the pounds with these quick tips.

Don’t Deny Yourself – Use Portion Control

Delicious holiday foods are just part of the celebration, and you don’t have to deny yourself. If you try denying yourself, eventually you’ll probably break and binge. Instead, make sure you’re using portion control. Start by choosing a small plate and going with small servings of the foods you love the most.

Avoid Mindless Eating at Parties

When you’re at a party, it’s easy to eat mindlessly, especially as you’re talking with friends, family, or coworkers. Pay attention to what you are eating and don’t graze. Fill your plate once and be done. It’s also important to avoid overdoing it at an open bar, since the calories in those cocktails can really add up.

Make Sure You’re Eating Often Enough

Don’t make the mistake of skimping on what you eat during the day so you can binge at a party or holiday meal later. You need to make sure you’re eating often enough so you’re not overly hungry when you head to your event. 

Focus on People Instead of Food

While food is one part of your holiday, try focusing on people instead of food. Socialize with the people you love and put less focus on enjoying the food. It will help you improve your relationship with food and those you love.

Throughout the holidays, fall back on these helpful tips. Check our website for some great recipes for the holidays that will help you reach your weight loss goals.
