Healthy Eating Tips over Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a time of family, friends, gratitude and FOOD! Stay tuned to the healthy food that is around and be the one that makes the salad and the veggie plate!! Stay away from the inflammatory foods that are everywhere! It is our minds that believe these sugary, rich, tasty foods are what we want. We love that feeling of the way food activates our senses and our taste-buds! Once the food heads down to the stomach to be utilized and digested it has a negative, inflammatory impact on the body.
Did you know that most people will go through the holiday season and put on 6-10 lbs? If you are over 40, it is really hard to get this weight off. This is important to remember. I ask all of my HCG Diet patients to keep hold of the reigns this holiday season and enjoy healthy food that still makes the soul feel good. It feels great to choose to nourish your body on a cellular level!!!
TIPS TO HELP YOUR BODY OVER THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Be Mindful with Food – You will find food EVERYWHERE and friends want to say “I love you” with something sweet and tasty. Be aware of what is best for you and what your health goals are. You do not need to say NO and feel deprived. You could say NO and feel good about it! If you MUST, have something … check out the 1 bite rule where you take 1 small bite and enjoy it fully. The neat things is that you will have enjoyed this little bite more than the person next to you who just devoured the entire thing without even thinking much about it.
Fill your plate with 100% healthy vegetables and proteins Feel proud that you have put your bodies healthy needs first. Find the right balance for you.
Connect with loved ones (even if virtually) Make this the priority this holiday season. This is nurturing our emotional being and offers great satisfaction. Be a supportive friend to others! Take great care of one another. It’s good for your spirit to connect and be kind!
Add Self Care to your Daily Routine What can you add to your life that will help to improve your health? Maybe get a massage, reflexology, acupuncture a pedicure or some new bath salts. Perhaps, you could try some new healthy foods! I like to remind my friends to do a good clean up of nutrition in the diet in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Maintain your Health Regimen Keep your nourishing diet, keep your stress level down, exercise regularly, get good sleep, keep your attitude of gratitude and with this all there you will be healthy through the holidays.
