The holiday season is always a difficult time of the year to start a new diet. It’s also hard to maintain and control an existing and efficient diet. Now it’s time to avoid gaining weight especially if you have dropped some pounds lately.
You are likely still stuffed from Thanksgiving and will be eating the leftovers for the next few days. That’s not the best way to start a new diet but do your best to stay away from leftovers pies, sweets and cookies.
Christmas and end of year festivities are just around the corner and, with a little over a month, it really isn’t much time to significantly lose weight.
However, it should not be discouraging as you should have a different approach to your diet this time of the year. Parties and family gathering are “dangerous” places, where you may find it difficult to avoid extra eating and drinking.
The secret to stay on track is to maintain a balanced diet and continue exercising on the days you are not “celebrating”.
You still have about 4 weeks to exercise and eat properly. A good exercise program can help you lose some more weight in four weeks. A light diet rich in vegetables and low in carbs is also a must in any weight-loss diet. Supplements can be helpful, such as appetite suppressants or fat burners.
The key to any diet is to stay focused and motivated. It’s important to have your mind prepared for the upcoming festivities. Burn fat now, so you can afford to gain some later in December.
