The holiday season should be a time of fun, family and good cheer. But many people find it frustrating to try to enjoy themselves while slipping in their weight loss goals. The medical weight loss experts at 101 Medical Weight Loss say you can maintain your weight - or even lose weight - over the holidays by remembering three time-tested rules.
1. Watch your portions. At seasonal get-togethers, make preparing a meal a snap by mentally dividing a dinner plate in half. On half of the plate, put steamed or raw veggies. For the other half, mentally divide it in half again so that there are two more sections – each a quarter. On the remaining areas place a whole-grain starch and a lean protein (such as grilled meat, fish, or chicken). This makes it more difficult to over-eat the high-calorie foods that can derail healthy eating.
2. Keep up the exercise. Don’t drop an entire fitness routine just because of the holidays. Keep burning off extra calories into the New Year by staying active, in addition to watching portions.
3. Mind your beverages. Most people know they shouldn’t overeat, but it’s easy to forget about the liquid calories that come from drinking. Dieters can pile on 800 calories or more by having just two fruity alcoholic drinks. Stick to a one-drink maximum and opt for a glass of wine, lite beer or a drink mixed with tonic water or diet soda. In addition, be sure to drink water before and after.
Doctors at 101 Medical Weight Loss understand that this is a difficult time of year for people who are watching their weight. They are offering $50 off of their medical weight loss programs until the end of January 2013.
