6 Tips to Beat the Holiday Bulge
1. Load up on Proteins & Veggies First
Make the first plate of your big meals packed with proteins and veggies.
Turkey, roast beef, steak, and even ham are good choices, along with green
beans or green bean casserole. This will keep you from overdoing it on
the sugars and sweets.
2. Do Some Form of Resistance Training
Resistance training, bodyweight workouts or calisthenics, weight lifting,
or circuit training during the holidays is a great way to build some muscle
and burn some fat. All it takes is about 20 minutes a day.
Here’s a great example workout:
5 rounds of:
- 10x squats
- 10x push ups
- 10x sit ups
- 10x walking lunges
3.Work Out on High-Calorie Days
This is a MUST during the holidays. Doing some compound exercises like
squats, lunges, push-ups, and pull-ups is great for turning the calories
that you are eating into muscle tissue instead of fat stores.
4. Start Your Day with a High-Protein Breakfast
Skipping breakfast is a huge mistake on big eating days. Eat a protein-rich
breakfast within 30-60 minutes of waking up in the morning. We like 2-3
egg omelets or scrambles with some shredded chicken or ground turkey.
5. Sneak in Some Cardio Anywhere You Can
The more calories that you can burn, the better. Cardio is a great tool
to sneak in throughout your day (or even in your workout) to burn extra
calories and ignite your metabolism. Have a spare 5-10 minutes during
your day? Do some burpees, jumping jacks, squat jumps, and / or mountain
climbers, or take a quick run.
6. Stay Hydrated
We often confuse thirst for hunger, which can cause us to overeat. Making
sure that you drink at least 80 ounces of water per day (more on the days
that you exercise) will help your body distinguish between hunger and thirst.
