Afraid of Holiday Weight Gain? 4 Tricks to Avoid It

It’s that time of the year again. It’s the do-or-die moment when you are truly tested to follow your diet. For most of us, the temptation of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie is just too much. We throw in the towel once Thanksgiving dinner hits the table and we don’t worry about picking our routine back up until after the New Year begins. If you want to make a change this holiday season and you want to stay strong during the most delicious meal of the year, here are 4 tricks you can use to avoid the holiday weight gain.

  1. Portion Control

The first tip on the list is also one of the easiest because the power is in your hands. You can enjoy those amazing and tasty meals but do so with smaller portion sizes. The thing is that your body has about a 20 minute delay to let you know that you’re full. During that time, you’ll keep eating until you’ve well exceeded the caloric amount that you should have. Take a small set of portions and drink water. Wait about 20 minutes before taking a second helping.

  1. Put Yourself in Charge

What better way to know what’s going into a meal than when you’re the cook?

 Putting yourself in charge of the meal (or a part of the meal) means you know exactly what’s going into the food and roughly the amount of calories that you can expect. (You can also use MyFitnessPal to help with calorie counting).

If you aren’t a cook, order out. There are plenty of healthy catering services that can keep your weight loss goals in mind.

  1. Exercise

Ever walk into a gym in November? It’s practically a ghost town.

Don’t be the like the rest of the crowd.

Don’t let the holidays be an excuse to skip out on exercise.

When weight loss is your goal, the main idea is burning MORE calories than you are consuming. Exercise is the ideal partner to watching your calories. Focus on high intensity interval workouts to save yourself time and burn the most calories. 

  1. Wear a Sauna Suit

Finally, the easiest, most convenient, and one of the most effective ways to avoid that holiday weight gain is to wear a sauna suit. The Kutting Weight sauna suit has been scientifically proven to support a healthy weight loss by doing the following:

  • Burns up to 13% more calories
  • Increases post-exercise calorie burning by up to 22%
  • Results in an overall greater weight loss of up to 40%

Best of all, the neoprene sauna suit can be worn anywhere at any time. Wear the Kutting Weight neoprene weight loss suit as you prepare your side dishes or set the table. Make it a part of your daily routine around the house and you’ll be sure to help fight back that holiday weight gain.
