Myth: Winter Holiday Weight Gain is Inevitable
Thanksgiving started the 6 weeks winter holiday eating season. You don't have to gain weight this year. Weight gain is OPTIONAL, and to opt out successfully you need a plan.
If you really want to avoid gaining weight this winter, you MUST have a plan. Failure to make a plan is planning to fail. Or, in this case, planning to gain.
What does a plan look like? It's includes knowing ahead of time how you will respond to predictable situations.
Do you know how you will politely say no when your mom offers you a third slice of pie?
Do you know how you will navigate your fourth holiday zoom party of the weekend without consuming your 15th alcoholic drink in 2 days?
How will you eat the rest of the week after a weekend bender of egg nog and Christmas cookies?
How much water should you drink?
How much protein should you eat?
Lucky for us all, Working Against Gravity has published a holiday survival guide. You don't need to eat every single holiday cookie to enjoy the season, nor do you need to keep a bag of baby carrots hanging around your neck. You can have your fruit cake and eat it, too. The WAG guide will show you how.
The winter holidays are fun and stressful. This year why not create a plan that will help you navigate the churning seas of eggnog and pumpkin pie?
