How to Prevent Weight Gain During the Holidays

The December holidays, the most wonderful time of the year. Or are they? While office parties, family dinners and friendly get-togethers do have that magic feel about them, they also have another thing in common: loads and loads of unhealthy food.

Already feel your waist expanding? Brush it off. Now you actually *can* have your cake and stay fit too. To enjoy the holiday feasts and not come out a few pounds heavier, just stick to these golden rules of Fit-mas.

1. Keep moving

Between stuffing ourselves with Christmas delicacies, watching TV and catching up with family and friends, it’s ridiculously easy to slip into the hibernation mode. But while time seems to stand still, you shouldn’t.

Make sure to get up, stretch and go for a (house) walk every 30 to 60 minutes. This will improve your circulation and keep your metabolism running, so you can burn calories without really trying.

2. Eat before heading out

That way, you won’t feel the need to gorge on the canapés as soon as you make it to your friend’s house. Skipping meals is never a good idea – the hunger will strike back eventually, pushing you to eat more than you otherwise would have.

3. Eat less and more often

Spread your meals evenly throughout the day to avoid overeating. That way you’ll be more likely to keep your blood sugar levels steady and make healthier food choices. As a result, you’ll be able to lose weight faster and keep it off longer

4. Drink lots of water & dial down on the booze

Always stay hydrated. Thirst can be easily confused with hunger, prompting you to eat when you should actually be drinking. Make sure to drink your water through the entire day and especially before any large meals.

A glass or two before lunch or dinner will reduce the number of calories consumed and help you shed weight much faster. And take it easy on the alcohol. The less, the better.

5. Always plan ahead

If you’re the one hosting a party, opt for healthier food and snack choices. If not, take some with you. So in case you still end up nibbling on something in between snacks, it’s hummus-dipped celery instead of potato chips.

And throw an insanely powerful metabolism booster into the mix. AdipoSlim XXL will make it possible for you to:

-          keep cravings under control,

-          burn calories as you go and

-          transform them into energy instead of fat.

No effort, maximum results. It’s your greatest holiday wish, granted. Get it here:
