You may not have a healthy diet on the top of your holiday to-do list. However, it’s more important than ever to try to keep the calories in check despite all the distractions. Adding some fitness drinks to your day is an excellent way to start.
First, the Bad News
The bad news about all that snacking and grand feasts are that we overeat—by a lot. The numbers will surprise you—and it isn’t just the calories, either. All those rich desserts and cheese trays are adding up to unhealthy amounts of fat, too.
That single meal exceeds what we’re supposed to eat for the entire day for both men and women. This infographic from Thin Energy lays out the figures that provide enough incentive to make some positive changes. It also helps you put servings in perspective to stop overeating in its tracks.
Bring On the Good News
Yet, don’t despair. There is some good news, too. Most people don’t gain as much as they think they do during the holidays. The problem is that the pounds hang around long after you’ve finished your last glass of eggnog. One or two may not seem like a lot. However, they will add up to some serious weight gain over the years.
Fortunately, there are several things you can do to take charge of your diet and prevent overindulging. It all begins with awareness. When you define the issue, you open up a path to successful change. That means realizing when you’re overdoing it and putting a plan in action.
If you make the commitment, you’re well on your way, and you don’t have to wait until New Year’s Day to make that resolution to get back on track with your diet. Many people resolve to eat better with the best of intentions. A healthy lifestyle means a good diet and daily exercise. The best way to succeed with your plan is to make it a habit.
