How To Avoid Gaining Weight During the Holiday Season

'Tis the season to be jolly. Without a doubt the festive season is one of the happiest times of year but it won't be a very happy new year if after all the wining and dining you discover that you have gained a whole load of weight. Weight that you have struggled to lose throughout the course of the year.

One thing you have got to bear in mind is that the holidays can cause a lot of weight gain. Factors can include:
  • Usual workout routine compromised 
  • Stress 
  • Lack of activity
  • Tendency to eat a lot, especially when with friends and family.
  • Eating a lot of junk food e.g. cakes 
Calculate all of this and you will probably end up with disastrous results. This will definitely prove to be a drawback and a stumble to your fitness goals. When the new year comes you will have a New Year's Resolution- 'Get Fit Quick'.

You must watch what you eat. Be careful, otherwise you might discover that you've gained about 6 or more kg of fat during the holiday. You may find that hard to believe, but it is the truth. 

You will be shocked to discover it will take about a month to repair and reverse the damages to your body. This amount to nearly 2 months of time wasted. In these two months you could have been taking a single step closer to your goals, yet not 1 single step closer. This is the harsh reality of the situation.

Be Smart
I'm not saying that you shouldn't have fun. I even advise you have fun as I explain in my post entitled 3 Tips To Prevent Fat Gain. But be smart. Too much fun can lead you astray.

Remember "A moment on the lips, a lifetime on this hips". However great it may taste, the moment you have consumed it you would not get the same feeling as when you first tasted it. After that, you start to feel guilty and regretful- You have added weight and all that you have to show for it is "great taste".

My advice is to just be careful and watch what you eat. Being conscious of what you’re eating and how much you’re eating is going to help you more than you realise.

The result of your steadfastness will be of greater benefit to you and your goals than "just a little  bit won't more hurt".
