Help! It's Holidays and I'm Gaining Weight

 
Yeah, yeah, I hear that... I hear that... Every holiday seasons that is always our worry. Why is it that during holidays, our waist line also goes on a holiday and just cannot control itself to increase an inch or two? Well, I think everyone knows the answer, it is because we let ourselves indulge in these 30 days of feast. How could not we, since parties are here and there, and holiday foods are served best during this season, and of course, we cannot just put the plate down when we are talking to our long lost friends and relatives whom we see only during these times.

So, now you are thinking, I want to savor the holidays without worrying my waist line, but how can you do that? It's easy, guys. Check out some points below, and maybe these could help.

1. Eat at home before going to a party. Before leaving for the party, feed yourself with a bowl of cereals or a plate of vegetable salad, or anything healthy. Make yourself full before attending a party. This will prevent you from over-eating fatty foods that are usually served in the parties.

2. Specialty only. When you attend a party, it doesn't mean that you have to taste all the food that is served on the table. Pass some dishes and pick only those which are your favorites, when I say favorites, they do not mean "all", only those food that are rarely served or a dish that you know your friend's specialty, or just a dish that is so irresistible.By doing this, you avoid adding extra calories to your body from the food that you regularly eat.

3. Drink water instead. We all know that in parties, they serve drinks, you know that one with lots of sugar or calories or alcohol. So instead of gulping down these liquids, why not keeping your hand with a glass of water while talking to your long lost friend.

4. Size matters. When you see your favorite food on the buffet table, it doesn't mean that you have to overturn the serving plate to your plate. Take small portions only. Remember that this month is full of parties, so just tell yourself that you'll have that favorite dish of yours next time.

5. Burn baby burn! And lastly, when you attend a party, park far away from the event. This will give you reason to walk to your car and start burn the calories you just had stock in your body. Oh, and don't forget to add extra exercise too.
