Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, the pumpkin-spice-flavored everything is already abundant and you can already feel the threat of an impending weight gain.
Did you know studies are saying Americans will gain between 1 and 10 pounds on average between Halloween and New Year’s Day? That is crazy! But, the most troubling fact is that most Americans never will lose that extra “holiday” weight.
If you don’t have a game plan for the holidays, I can pretty much guarantee you will easily go tumbling down the sugar cookie and eggnog slope. The temptations literally around every corner, those festive parties and treats ganging up on your waistline in the form of hundreds or thousands of excess calories, all spell bad news for your weight-loss goals. Or this might be the holiday season that forces you into the need for weight loss goals next year!
Can taste, nutrition, economical and healthy all meet on one plate?
During the holidays, it can be tempting to let your menus, budgeting and health all fall by the wayside! But, with a little planning and creativity, HEALTHY gourmet cooking is easily achievable… without the need for a 6-7 figure paycheck! From professional chef to amateur, this strategy will have your guests raving, your pocketbook singing and your kids asking for more!
So, before you even pull out your sweat pants and gear up for Thanksgiving, try to save yourself from the inevitable food-induced coma. Extra weight can lead to poor budgeting habits, unneeded stress and health issues.
Just know if you want to make it through this holiday season without losing any ground or even better than when you went in, you absolutely must have a game plan! And if you are worried about falling short of your goals, take comfort in knowing that by even just having a plan you will make it through the holidays better than most.
Now let’s talk about developing a plan that works for you, using some of these tips:
I see a lot of families stress more about a meal, instead of focusing on spending time together. This season start a new tradition, where your holidays are about hanging out with each other, blessing others and not freaking out over a bird or pig!
