Now is the time to start to get ready for the holidays. While planning your Thanksgiving menu, decorating the house and even start buying holiday gifts is important, it’s not nearly as important as getting fit and having the energy to make it through the hustle and bustle of the next few months. It also means preparing to look your best while feeling your best in this stressful time. You can start now to learn healthy eating habits so you won’t lose ground and look fabulous for the incoming year.
We can help you with nutritional advice.
You really don’t have to diet if you know how to choose your food wisely. In fact, you’ll lose weight and never feel hungry with a healthy eating plan. Some of the tips will be simple. Just have healthy snacks available so you aren’t tempted to raid the cookie jar or gobble the last bite of ice cream in the freezer. Eating wild or brown rice means fewer calories than eating white rice, but you still get the flavor of rice with your food. You probably already know how nutritionally empty many of the processed foods are and how high in chemicals and calories they are too. Stay away from them and you’ll look and feel better. You can learn healthy eating, but it doesn’t mean you have to pass by your favorite pie made by Aunt Mabel that you only get once a year. You’re allowed to eat some of your favorite foods, just not huge portions or that frequently….so eating the whole pie is off limits.
Work out hard now and you won’t feel tired later.
It’s amazing how the body works. When you exercise regularly, instead of depleting you of energy, it builds it. Preparing for a day of celebration takes a lot of effort, but the holiday times include many days of celebration, one after another. If you’re exhausted from ensuring that everything is perfect and everyone has a great time, you’ll miss out on all the fun. Start now to build a strong body and you’ll love the holidays again.
