With upcoming parties and holiday events, you may be tempted to skip meals to preserve your daily calories so you can indulge in tasty treats.
One of the worst things you can do during the holidays is skip meals especially if you are trying to lose weight or maintain your weight. Not eating every few hours leads to hunger and low blood sugar. As a result, you’ll be more likely to over indulge when you do eat.
Try to eat a small, healthy meal every few hours. Drink plenty of water and eat a healthy, nutrition-packed snack before heading out to any events where you’ll be tempted to indulge in the wrong types of food. At events, you don’t have to deprive yourself entirely. Allow yourself small treats as rewards if you want.
If you do go over-board, do a few protein only days to reduce bloating and shed some weight. This will not only help you shed off some water weight but also leave you feeling a lot better.
