It’s often said that the average American puts on 5 – 10 pounds during the holiday season, but we know you’re not average or content settling with the norm. That’s exactly why we’re going to help you nip holiday weight gain in the bud before it happens. In this episode of BioTrust Radio, Shawn and Tim are going to arm you for success with 15 fool-proof healthy holiday eating strategies. Enjoy!

The media often reports that people typically gain 5 or more pounds during the holidays; the truth is that these reports are exaggerated, and the average holiday weight gain is closer to 1 pound. That doesn’t change the fact, however, that most people rarely lose that weight, which continues to accumulate year after year. And this is why healthy holiday eating is so important and the topic of so much discussion.

We get it: The holidays are STRESSFUL, and they’re BUSY. Combine that with the abundance of rich, decadent, delicious, calorie-dense food and drink, and healthy holiday eating becomes an afterthought. After all, what would your New Year’s Resolution be if your eating habits didn’t go to hell in a handbasket?

But what if you were armed with a toolbox of healthy holiday eating strategies that could help you avoid holiday weight gain without depriving yourself or feeling guilty? And what if some of those very same healthy holiday eating tools could also help you more thoroughly enjoy the holidays, reduce stress, repair relationships, and even let go of toxic thoughts and feelings?

That’s precisely what we cover in this episode of BioTrust Radio where we reveal our top 15 healthy holiday eating strategies, which either directly or indirectly (emotional eating) affect what and how much you eat and drink. Make sure you tune in to hear Shawn and Tim talk more about these tools and how to use them:

  • Mindful meditation and increasing your awareness of the stress you’re experiencing
  • Find out how forgiveness and the following quote from Jonathan Lockwood Huie can help liberate you from stress and emotional eating. “Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.”
  • Simply put, SIMPLIFY
  • Learn how stress management techniques (like yoga and meditation) can help squash emotional eating
  • Journal ways that events cause stress, and write down ways to de-stress
  • Healthy holiday eating starts with eating and drinking slowly and mindfully
  • Use intermittent fasting to combat a day or meal of overindulging; if you overeat one day/meal, eat less the next day/meal. One day of overeating is not going to do irreparable harm
  • Intense exercise can be a very useful tool for “damage control”
  • Sometimes you have to BYOF to ensure healthy holiday eating
  • Just like they say to never go to the grocery store hungry, have a “pre-game meal”
  • Before a big meal, “pre-load”
  • Position yourself (in the room) for healthy holiday eating
  • Out sight, out of mind
  • Healthy holiday eating isn’t about the food; it’s about the people
  • Watch what you drink if you plan to have healthy holiday eating habits

We’ll cover all these healthy holiday eating strategies, which can boost your overall health and weight loss efforts ANY time of year, and more. Enjoy!
