The Holiday season is finally upon us! That means it’s time to laugh loads, party tons, and be jolly with our family and friends. But along with the bliss, the Season of Feasting also sadly brings the inevitable weight gain, leaving us feeling sluggish at the end of it. However, there’s no need to undo all the hard-earned progress you’ve made. We got you babe! To minimise the damage this season, here’s our 3 tips to keep the weight off. Don’t worry starving yourself is not part of the list!
Tip #1: Keep Active
It’s hard to find the time and motivation to workout with all the festivities right? We feel you! Unfortunately, staying active is crucial to prevent your waistline from upsizing. But it doesn’t have to be all dreadful, use this as an activity to do with your family and friends. Go on walks or hikes to spend some quality time with them while shedding off the weight. We recommend you workout soon after you wake up because it will supercharge your body’s fat-burning ability.
To maximise your results and take it that much further, drink a cup of Tropic Tone Up after your workout. It helps tone up your body during post-workout recovery.
Tip #2: Prioritise Fiber & Protein
The most popular activity of the season, eating good food and loads of it with no restriction is what the majority of us look forward to all year round. Okay so we’re not going to tell you not to eat but there are some guidelines to help you still enjoy the festive foods while keeping the weight off. Given that holiday meals are typically rich in carbs, it’s crucial to incorporate protein and fibers into your diet. Fibers and proteins are important to weight control because it boosts your metabolism as well as induce fullness, which will reduce your calorie intake and in turn prevent weight gain.
Pro-tip: Use smaller plates as an easy way to control your portions.
Tip #3: Sleep, Sleep & Sleep
We get it, the holiday season is party season and the night never seems to end. But babe, please we beg you, get enough sleep! Lack of sleep is a contributing factor to weight gain. It increases your hunger hormone levels which will lead you to have a higher calorie intake. Furthermore, sleep deprivation has often been linked to lower metabolism. So please do your precious body a favor, and get enough sleep. And if you’re finding it hard to calm your mind thinking of the exciting plans you have for the next day, drink a glass of Night Cleanse before bed for a more restful night of sleep.
Bonus Tip: Drink Detox Teas
Working detox teas or juices into your day will be your saving grace to fight bloating and counter water retention that are typically experienced during the festive season. Our favorites are the 28 Day Teatox, Detox Cherry Bomb, and Green Cleansing Elixir. These cult favorites are perfect blends that will energise you, ease the discomfort of bloating & support fat burn.
Keeping the weight off during the holiday season can seem impossible but our tips can help you brave through this period with little damage to your fitness progress, leaving you feeling energised to get back into the grind come the new year.
