With the most wonderful time of the year coming soon, office parties, gatherings with family and friends are all coming along, are you ready for the one of the biggest holiday feasts?
Despite of the joyful atmosphere, some might get frustrated for the holiday because it seems impossible to get through the seasons filled with delicious foods and treats without putting on some pounds.
With the eating tips we share with you below, surviving this holiday while keeping your waistline intact can be possible. Plan ahead before the holiday and develop strategies that can help you make the right food choices and keep your hunger in control. Share these tips with your friends and family today!
Eat before you arrive
The same rule as “don’t go shopping hungry” applies for parties, too. Before heading out for a party, eat something so you won’t arrive hungry. Eating at home gives you more control in choosing the right foods. TLS Nutrition Shake is an excellent pre-party drink or snack. Don’t forget to take the TLS Trim Café or TLS trim tea or a mix of both before the dinner to help curb your appetite.
Prepare your own dishes
Prepare and bring your own healthy dish when visiting your family and friends. While you can enjoy something healthy at the party or dinner, you can also share your recipe with your loved ones! After all, a healthy dish can be delicious as well! Visit hk.tlsSlim.com if you need some ideas for healthy recipes!
Don’t afraid to say “No”
We all like to share foods with others. Don’t be afraid to say no to unhealthy food choices. Remember the purpose of the gathering is to spend quality time with your loved ones and not because of the eating. You can always let people know you are on a weight loss plan.
Don’t forget to exercise
We know that during the holiday seasons, we can get busy with all the celebrations, gatherings and shopping, and it might bet harder to squeeze in time for exercise. Taking a walk with your family after dinner or dancing at the party can help you burn some calories.
Whether you are the host or you are enjoying the party at your friend’s, be mindful of what you choose to keep or bring home. Keep temptation away from your eyesight as much as possible.
After all, the holiday season should be a time of celebration and relaxation. Eating healthy during the holiday can be anxious, if you happen to eat more than you planned, try to get back on track the next day by following the TLS healthy eating plan.
