November is just the beginning of the weight gain season. With other holidays fast approaching, that means bring on the parties, lack of time, and constant desserts, food, and drinks! Here are some quick simple steps to help battle that bulge that we're working so hard on to keep away currently: Always prepare, whether it's a simple grocery list, planning out dinners for the week, packing your lunch everyday or making an entire weeks worth of food; remember failure to prepare is preparing to fail. If you had to present a huge power point presentation at work and your career depended on it would u just go in and wing it? No, so why not prepare for your health!? Your health depends on your preparation with food, exercise and lifestyle choices.
One final helpful hint I can give you while getting ready for the festivities is avoid sabotaging yourself. If you LOVE candies don't buy them for the trick or treaters, hand out pencils or spider rings instead! Also there is no unwritten rule that food and drinks have to be consumed in excess at social gatherings! Eat before you go to the parties or bring a dish to share that you know you can eat. Remember we eat to live, we do NOT live to eat!
I'll leave you with one last tid bit of information. 3,500 calories makes up one pound of fat. Let's not allow our bodies to adapt to constant weight gain this holiday season, count your calories, start exercising, and plan plan plan! Call on a HealthPlex professional if you are worried about this fall and winter and remember, you're not in this alone, we are all here to help you!
