 You Don’t Have to Compromise Your Good Figure, or Your Good Health?

  Can you believe the holidays are here again already? It seems like we just had them, don’t you think? Well, maybe that’s a good thing. Why? Because if you are like so many million of people who have good intentions each year not to overeat, or to be more physically active during the holiday, but some how each year you seem to blow it, keep reading.

There’s good news for you. What is it? This year can be different. How can it be? It’s because this time you’re not just wishing, or hoping those things will happen. “You Are Making Them Happen.” The reason is now you have a plan. What kind of a plan? It’s a plan of execution to follow my Great 8 Healthy Holiday Helpings.

These tips will help you to Eat, Drink, and be Very Aware of how to do it without compromising your good figure or your good health. Now, are ready for your helpings?

Helping #1. Don’t starve yourself. Don’t go without food all day before eating your big Holiday meal. Eat something continually every three or four hours like (a small piece of fruit, or a few things from the veggie tray, a hand full of nuts, small cup of yogurt, a few whole grain crackers, or a slice of whole grain bread.

Helping #2. Eat Breakfast. It’s simple; it will fuel your body and make you less hungry later.

Helping #3. Put everything on one plate. It will make you more aware of what, and how much you’re eating. The goal is to try not to go back for seconds.

Remember: Portion side is the key; it’ll help you prevent over doing it. *Here’s another important point. Sure, it’s okay to have some turkey and dressing but also make sure you load up on fruits and veggies. Why? They will make you feel full, as well as provide your body with the desired nutrients it needs.

Helping #4. Eat slowly. It’s a great way to help you savor all the good food combinations, and it too will help you eat less.

Helping #5. Stay active. Can I say, it’s the perfect way to keep your body in motion. So why not indulge in a good old fashion snow ball fight, or be daring and head on out to practice your skate boarding/roller blading skills.

Helping #6. Dance UP A Storm, the holiday’s are the perfect time to get together with your family, or friends, and put on your favorites tunes. Then show off your hot new dance moves, or perhaps have a dance contest! Know that it’s a great way to exercise, a cool way to work up a sweat, and to work off a few calories.

Helping # 7. Get Some REST. It’s no secret, we all know what getting enough (6, 7 hrs) of some good old happy shut eye will do. Doing so will make you feel more refreshed, and energized for all the festivities you’ll be encountering.

Helping # 8. Group Up. Why not go the extra mile? Group up and give each other a nice back message. It’s a fun way to start, or to end, a day full of continuous mayhem.

Enjoy your Happy Holiday Helpings!
