Thanksgiving is the kick-off of the year-end holiday season. It’s also the beginning of a challenging period to control diet. If you had quite some indulgence at this past Thanksgiving, we have 5 ways to help you regain control of your weight, and build healthy habits for the festive season and the New Year.
People often mistake their thirst for hunger. Next time you feel hungry, reach for a glass of water first. Drinking water helps you feel full. Many experts suggest sipping water just before your meal. Continue drinking water to add volume and weight to your meal.
People who have kept their weight off for more than a few years tend to eat an average of 5 times a day. Light, frequent meals curb your appetite, boost your energy, improve your mood and speed up your metabolism.
Look for nutritious low-calorie alternatives to sugary, high fat treats. Try frozen grapes instead of candy. Use air-popped popcorn instead of oil-popped. Dip fresh strawberries in fat-free fudge sauce for a chocolatey treat, and make sure to take your ShoEnergy+ and ShoBalance supplements so that you have enough vital vitamin Bs to remain energized, and boost your metabolism and cognitive performance.
Some people binge when they are stressed. A Yale University study found that women who secreted the most cortisol (a hormone released during stress) ate the most high-fat food after stress. The combination of cortisol and insulin prompts the body to store fat- just what you don’t need. If stress has a stronghold of your life, try practicing yoga, meditation or simply go for walks and practice some breathing technics to stay relaxed and fit.
Walking is a low impact exercise that is easy and free to everyone. It helps strengthen your heart, lose weight, boost vitamin D, increase energy, lower disease risks, and provides you with mental clarity. Walking is a great cardio exercise that helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol while increasing the level of HDL (good) cholesterol to help control high blood pressure. A 30-minute walk every day helps prevent and control high blood pressure, reducing the risk by up to 27%. Walking also slashes the risk of type 2 diabetes by around 60% and reduces the risk of cancer by 20%. Lastly, you will burn 75 calories by walking 2mph for 30 minutes, and as you up your speed, you will burn more calories and shed lots of weight for the festive season.
