So the Holidays Are Coming and How You Can Prevent Weight Gain through Planning Ahead

If you are like me you love to eat and especially all the amazing delicious once a year (or infrequent temptations) specialty foods you don't get to have regularly (thank god). There are an over abundance of cookie plates and trays, coffee cakes, assorted gourmet chocolates, Italian cakes and desserts, pasta dishes, roast meats like beef, chicken, turkey and pork not to mention the rich butter sauces that accompany these with the cheese plates and nut trays. You might also get to have seafood and the decadent butter cream sauces that go with it sure to pack on an additional ten to twelve pounds of lard. These results can be avoided by simply planning ahead.

Always carry a protein rich meal with you or  eat prior to going to a tempting event. If your blood sugar is satisfied you are very unlikely to over eat at the event.

The Key to Avoiding Weight Gain

The most important thing you must remember to do is to always carry a protein rich meal with you or to eat prior to going to a tempting event. If your blood sugar is satisfied you are very unlikely to over eat at the event. You can decide before you go what you will eat and how much. If you are hurried and do not plan you are very likely to ver eat because you are hungry and eating these fattening foods will do damage. Trust me I know.

Consider what types of foods trigger you to overeat.

The more you know yourself, your history, your trauma, your patterns, your emotional triggers the better choices you can make regarding food and the impact it will have on you. Food has a powerful effect on us and impacts our feelings and moods. Often we unconsciously reach for food to make us feel a certain way or to prevent us from feeling an uncomfortable feeling we'd rather bypass. Make a list of your favorite foods you consume to make you feel better. Then write next to each one on the list what each one does to make you feel a certain way. Look for patterns.

More importantly contemplate what emotional triggers are impacting you at this time of year!

The holidays can be a festive magical time for many people to celebrate and gather together with family and friends. For others the holidays can be sad, lonely or depressing. Consider your general mood day in a day out during this time of year. Are you happy, social and excited to be with your family and friends? Or do you dread the holidays which drum up for you abuse filled memories which are magnified during this time of year?

If so you aren't alone and eating or drinking or binge watching Netflix won't make those painful feelings go away. Instead decide that this year will be different. Decide you can feel good despite what happened in the past. If you don't think and act differently nothing will change.

So this year focus on bringing someone less fortunate than you a little joy. It could simply be bringing some home cooked dinner to the little dogs at the dog shelter. Imagine their plight: all alone, no one to love them, have to eat whatever slop is put in front them, sleeping in a cell, peeing on the floor and listening to the cries of the other inmates. Now that's something to be sad about but YOU CAN change your life! Give to someone who needs help and watch how it brings you out of your self-pity into a more expanded state of being. You stop focusing on your problems and instead become somebody else's answer.

Look we all can make a reason to feel bad if we focus on that thing, that trigger. But unless you're a masochist you can truly change how you feel. Food is a crutch that stops you from feeling when it's used addictively. The antidote is feeding yourself in other ways: nurturing your senses with beautiful sights, sounds, smells, touch and yes tastes.  Just make sure you stay conscious about your eating. 



The best way to stay lean is to focus on two things: health and portion control

Most foods in the store are full of poisons and fillers with little to zero nutritional content. In fact the vast majority of food is completely toxic and you would be better to not eat it at all. The food industry spends a great deal of funding to fool the consumer into thinking that their product is "wholesome", "natural" with "clean ingredients" when in fact they are allowed to use those words and many others that persuade consumers to buy their products. This is all perfectly legal and allowed. Therefore you must read labels and educate yourself. One quick way to start is by getting my free e-book "Winning with Real Food" when you get a 30 day trial to my Juicy Fit community. This is for women over 40 who want to look and feel younger.

When you reduce your portion sizes initially you'll feel a bit hungry because your stomach is still large. But eventually it will shrink and smaller sized meals will fit better inside it. Portion control is the key to staying lean. This is why it is crucial to understand your emotional triggers that cause you to reach for addictive foods. Diets don't work long term because a dieter has to restrict emotionally satisfying choices. This is what I do: I make my favorite foods LESS FATTENING by reducing sugar, reducing or eliminating fattening items like cheese or substituting them for something that tastes just as good but not nearly as fattening. Then I figure out how many macros are in them, i.e., calories from protein, carbs and fat that way I know how much it's costing me.

Conclusion: Stress is what sabotages success especially around the holidays. Plan ahead to reduce your chances of over eating. If you succumb to holiday drama forgive yourself and climb right back on your horse and start fresh the next day. It isn't what happens one day that matters but rather an accumulation of one days several days in a row. You've got this!
