How to Avoid Gaining Weight This Holiday Season

It's the time of year of again - when everyone's happy and merry, gifts are everywhere, and the most delicious foods and drinks are overflowing. But just because it's December doesn't mean that you have to totally neglect your health and DIET.

Because of the festive season and the brimming supply of food, it is no wonder that a lot of us gain weight during Christmas and New Year. However, there’s actually plenty of ways that you can do to avoid gaining weight. Here’s everything that you need to know:

Watch Your Portions

Delicious food and booze are brimming, but see to it that you always watch your portions. Apart from watching your portions, be mindful also what you are eating and skip Christmas foods that are unhealthy. If your goal is to stay fit and healthy then consider avoiding fatty and fried foods and lessen the intake of sweet foods.

Drink Moderately

Aside from the delicious food, drinks and booze are also brimming this Holiday. Since you can't escape parties and reunions, just bear in mind that you shouldn't drink too much. Drinking too much can actually lead to poor sleep and a greater consumption of food.  And this, of course, can contribute to weight gain.

Choose What You Eat Wisely

Fried foods are always known to have high-calorie content, so make sure to control your food intake. When it comes to attending parties and social gatherings this Holiday season, always choose to eat foods that are healthy. Be extra conscious of the calories you will get when eating a particular dish this Christmas season. As a matter of fact, make it a rule to skip all fried dishes.

Don't Skip Exercising

I know, the weather outside is freezing cold, but that's not even enough for you to skip exercising. If the weather is really bad, then consider doing indoor exercise routines instead. This will not just help you stay fit but it can also help keep you healthy.

There are plenty of fitness apps that you can download on your mobile device so that you can't skip exercising regardless of the weather.  Stay healthy and keep those fats burning.

Amidst the Holiday hustle and bustle, make sure that you are eating properly and exercising regularly to avoid the potential risks of weight gain. We hope you have an awesome and meaningful Holiday Season from your Ezisoul team!
