It’s that time of the year again where the food and drinks never seem to quit. We are going to be around wonderful treats and tasty cocktails for the next month, but that doesn’t mean you need to let your waist side expand like your appetite. I have some great pointers to keep that metabolism burning , and you will not be short changed when it comes to eating your favorite holiday treats this season.
Holidays are a time for celebration, and it’s also the time to enjoy all your favorites. Those favorites may or may not be the healthiest, but with these tips, you will not have to worry.
– Drink that hot lemon water every morning. This gives your metabolism a boost, and keeps your liver working properly. Make sure to make you a cup every morning.
– Drink more water through out the day. This really does prevent over eating, because it makes you feel so much fuller when it comes to party time.
– get out every day and get in 30-45 minutes of exercise. Whether it is running, or walking , it’s burning calories.
– try to opt for lower calorie cocktails. Alcohol CAN kill your waist line if you are drinking high calorie drinks every day. If you know you are going to be drinking, pick a vodka drink over a cream based drink , such as those tasty martinis that can add up to an extra 300 -400 calories a drink. The sugar is what’s so fattening. Try to stay at a minimum of 2, and drink water between them.
-try to stop eating by early evening. Having a small snack is ok, but eating big meals later in the evening, will not help your metabolism.
Try doing these tips during the holidays, and it will be so much better on your body, and will help in preventing those extra pounds during the holiday season.
