Don’t let the holidays hinder your progress! Use these tips and recipes to navigate your way through the all of the temptations.
Here are our favourite tips:
Keep a food journal to keep yourself accountable
Don’t skip meals throughout the day. We all know how easy it is to inhale too much food when you are hungry… plus no one likes to be hangry
Drink only water between meals
Keep the “squishy carbs” to a minimum (breads, rice, pasta, white potatoes)
Grab a small plate when dishing up for supper. Our brains usually overpower our stomachs and we stop eating when our plate is empty not when our belly’s are full
Fill up your plate with the protein first, then veggies or fruits, fill remaining space with small amounts of extras
Keep your hands occupied so you don’t mindlessly grab a snack, or 7
