Stick To Your Weight Loss Goals With These Tips For a Healthy Holiday Diet

Honoring your meal plan can be one of of the most difficult challenges, especially during the festive season. But it’s far from impossible! With the help of a nutrition coach, sticking to a healthy diet for your weight loss doesn’t have to be hard.

Want to enjoy the holidays without overdoing it? Follow these simple tips:

1. Get Enough Sleep

For anyone trying to lose weight or just get healthier, getting enough sleep is crucial to making healthy eating choices. This is because, a lack of sleep:

  • Deprives you of energy, sending you in search of higher-fat, higher-calorie food
  • Increases your appetite
  • Creates inflammation
  • Reduces insulin sensitivity, meaning any carbohydrates you eat are more likely to be stored as fat rather than be used for energy.

So remember, by resting up (getting at least seven hours of sleep) the night before a holiday party, you will save calories and make healthier choices.

2. Reach for the Veggies First

During any holiday gatherings, it’s important to choose your first buffet picks wisely. Nutrition coaches advise that you will consume the largest quantity of anything you eat first, so set yourself up for success by starting with something low calorie such as veggies and hummus.

3. Think Small

With all the delicious spreads during holiday fetes, it’s very easy to get carried away and lose track of your weight loss diet. However, one of the most effective tips of keeping your eating in control is by thinking small. This includes:

  • Eating smaller meals throughout the day
  • Downsizing your plate (this could result in you eating up to 40% less!)
  • Taking smaller bites, chewing longer and eating slower

4. Stay Active

Keep the inevitable indulgences in check by staying active. Enjoy some winter sports for a change of pace, or schedule in a quick walk or personal training session before you head out to the next party.
