New Orleans Holiday Weight Loss Tips!

new-orleans-holiday-eating

Have you ever wondered why everyone you know still gains weight this time of year – despite the fact that Holiday weight loss tips are passed around in greater numbers than Thankgiving cookies?
Don’t get me wrong – weight loss tips are great. I love to find creative ways to cut calories and increase activity during the most fattening time of the year.

In fact, here are 10 great tips that will prevent you from gaining weight over the holidays:

1.Limit your intake of calorie laden beverages. Eggnog, champagne, mochas, and hot chocolate all have one thing in  common: they are packed with empty calories – avoid these beverages and load up on water instead.

2. Officially schedule exercise into your calendar. It’s just too easy to let workouts slide this time of year – make a commitment to exercise and keep it.

3. Forego the goodie making. By keeping your home free from Holiday treats you will undoubtedly gain fewer pounds. However, if you simply have to make those Holiday cookies then chew gum during the baking process to prevent snacking.

4. Have fun being active. Winter is a great time to burn calories outdoors. Go bike riding for a day or take the kids to the park. Too chilly? No problem – take a r power walk through the mall.

5. Use healthy ingredients. Your Holiday meal will taste even better when you seek out fresh, organic and low fat ingredients – and you’ll feel better too.

6. Learn to compromise. Dying to have that peppermint mocha? Go ahead – but have it with nonfat milk and pass on the whipped cream.

7. Don’t go hungry. The Holidays are a dangerous time for your metabolism. Focus on eating small balanced meals every few hours to keep your metabolism going strong.

8. Enjoy a sample. No one says you have to completely avoid the appetizers and desserts at your Holiday party – just enjoy in moderation.

9. Focus on family not food. Let’s face it, this time of year is big on two things: family and food. Make an effort to place your focus primarily on your family.

10. Stick to your strategy. The best way to gain weight over the Holidays is to approach them without a plan. Using the above tips, write down the ways in which you plan to avoid weight gain this year – then periodically check up on yourself.

The truth is that if you follow these New Orleans weight loss tips you will see a drop in Holiday pounds and you may even lose a pound or two…but don’t expect to reshape your figure with them.

Let’s be honest, you want to lose more than a pound or two.

-You want to lose all of those extra pounds while reshaping your body.
-Simply avoiding certain foods or burning a few extra calories won’t produce the breathtaking results that you crave.

Here’s the bottom line: To transform your body you must introduce new and challenging exercise to your routine.
You may feel that the secret to achieving weight loss is just that – a secret. A mystery. You try, and try, and try but your goals are never met. Your dream body continues to stay out of reach.

In my experience the people who are unable to lose weight aren’t failing due to laziness. In fact, those frustrated with their weight often put in a lot of effort – but on the wrong things.

  • A fad diet.
  • The latest exercise gizmo.
  • An ineffective routine at the gym.

It’s not that you aren’t willing to put in the effort – you’re just doing the wrong thing.

Think about this for a moment…What if 2009 was the year that you took control of your body?

The year that you threw your fat clothes away…

the year that your doctor congratulated you on your improved health…

the year that your family and friends – and that special someone – showered you with compliments.

the year that you were proud to put on those skinny pants…

It’s possible. Even more possible than you think.


The thing is that you need to direct your effort in an effective way.
It all comes back to introducing new and challenging exercise into your routine.

You see, for me weight loss isn’t a mystery. It’s my passion. I have a proven method that will dramatically transform your body into one that you are proud to be seen in.However, I can’t promise that it will be easy. You’ll work hard, you’ll sweat and you’ll even feel sore. And before you know it you will be telling everyone you know about the amazing results you’ve achieved.

In this season of gift giving don’t miss the opportunity to give yourself the gift that you really want.

  • A stronger body.

Biggest challenges are all the tasty desserts!!! I will try to sample this year instead

I love Tip #2 Officially schedule exercise into your calendar. It’s just too easy to let workouts slide this time of year – make a commitment to exercise and keep it.

Biggest challenges are all the candies and cookies that are EVERYWHERE! Patients and other physicians leave us gifts in the office and we’re just coming off having everyone’s leftover Halloween candy in the office.

Sometimes the only thing that works is reminding myself that I feel like I’m in a crazy sugar-coma after I eat a bunch of candy.

My aunt makes this spinach side dish that I LOVE. However it is loaded with cream and cheese. Dear God, give me strength. I wonder if it would be rude of me to ask her to not make it this year. Who knows? She might welcome the break. :)
