5 Tips to Enjoy the Holidays Without Weight Gain

5 Tips to Enjoy the Holidays Without Weight Gain

Many people worry about gaining weight during the holiday season—and for good reason. The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is when Americans gain the greatest amount of weight during the year. Studies indicate that individuals who are overweight or obese are even more likely to experience weight gain at this time.   There is a sense of normalcy in overindulging during the holidays. While everyone should be able to enjoy themselves, keeping the following tips in mind can help people stay on track with wellness goals while celebrating.   Tip #1: Don't Get Too Hungry It's more challenging to make good food choices when you're hungry. In addition to compromising on what you eat, your hunger can also dictate how much you eat. Try to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day, and avoid going more than 4 hours without eating anything to keep blood sugar and hunger levels stable.   Tip #2: Curb Your Appetite Before You Go Many people think they should skip meals to ""save"" their calories for decadent foods. This often backfires and can be an unhealthy habit approach. Try having an UNJURY shake before attending an event so that you're not inclined to eat everything in sight. Protein works better at curbing hunger than any other source of nutrition. The high-quality protein in UNJURY is particularly good at stopping hunger and keeping you satisfied.   Tip #3: Don't Take a ""Holiday"" from Structure While you may not be able to control your options when attending holiday parties, be consistent when you can. Be sure to have a high protein breakfast, like an UNJURY shake, to start your day right and set yourself up for success. Continue to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your metabolism active. Get in activity where you can. Be sure to get adequate rest, as sleep deprivation can increase the production of hunger hormones.   Tip #4: Make Healthy Alternatives Available If you're the host, you can easily include plenty of healthy dishes in the spread for you to take advantage of. If you're attending an event, don't hesitate to bring a healthy dish to share. It's a thoughtful gesture, and will ensure that you have a good option. Consider adding some UNJURY to your dish to enhance the nutrition quality.  Visit https://www.unjury.com/blog/recipes/ for ideas!   Tip #5: Acknowledge Slip-Ups and Move Forward No matter how well you plan or how determined you are, staying on track during the holidays can be a challenge. Stress, temptation, peer pressure – there are so many reasons to overindulge. Just remember if you do, all is not lost. Your progress is not derailed by one meal. But be sure to reflect on what led to the slip-up so you can avoid it in the future. And most importantly, remember that the sooner you get back on track, the easier it will be.
