Even though Canadian Thanksgiving is technically over Many of us enjoyed various Canadian Versions of the U.S. Thanksgiving Celebrations such as Football Parties and Black Friday shopping. Now since the rest of the holiday season is around the corner and as such it’s still very easy to continue to eat a surplus of calories (and pack on the pounds) from the past weekend’s gatherings and all these upcoming Holiday events!
Instead, here are 3 quick tips to quickly get you back on track, prevent weight gain, and even drop some of those Thanksgiving pounds starting today!
1. Drop your calories for the next 3 days. This one is probably obvious, but in order to prevent weight gain in the days to come you’ll need to be calorie and portion conscious when it comes to the amount of food you’re consuming. Believe me, you have loads of stored nutrients in your muscles and liver (and probably a bit extra around your waist) as a result of all those holiday goodies, so you’ll have plenty of energy to sustain you over the course of the next 3 days as you reduce your overall calorie intake.
For ideal results, we recommend a calorie intake equal to 10xs your body weight.
2. Go “low carb”. One of the primary nutrients you stored from your Thanksgiving Day feast is carbohydrates in the form of glycogen (the storage form of carbohydrates in your muscle and liver tissue). Because these internal carb stores are already packed out, eating more carbs will easily cause them to spill over to fat storage. So as you reduce you calories, I recommend also reducing your carb intake over the next 3 days to less than 60 grams per day (not including fiber, so still be sure to eat PLENTY of veggies).
3. In case you missed it, see below for another GREAT Thanksgiving/Upcoming Holiday bloat-reduction strategy, as well as how you can save up to 50% on one of my FUZION small group fitness programs in honor of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”.
