Now that the holidays are officially over, it's time to get back to your weight loss plan. Chances are, you may have gained a little extra over the holidays due to the abundance of goodies and libations consumed during various parties, celebrations and family get-togethers. That's what the holidays are for after all - enjoying yourself! But now that the new year has begun, you may want to refocus on diet and exercise. In addition to working out regularly and taking your garcinia cambogia extract, there are a variety of ways to have a successful and healthy post-holiday detox and get back on the right track with your eating. Here are some simple tips to start off on the right foot:
Be in control of your surroundings: It's easy to splurge if you stock your fridge and pantry with unhealthy, processed food items. Instead, do a clean sweep of your kitchen, then head to the grocery store. Toss out any products that can sabotage your good intentions, then write out a list before you go shopping. Stick to the outer edges of the grocery store and load your cart with lean meats like chicken, turkey and fish, then load up on fruits, vegetables and healthy, clean foods. Yogurt and hummus are good for snacking and dipping as well. It will be much easier to eat well if your kitchen is prepped for it. In addition, you can find healthier recipe options for favorite meals to avoid overindulging.
Eat breakfast: Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, but when you're rushing around in the morning, it can be easy to skip. Unfortunately, opting out of this meal can lead to overeating later in the day or force you to grab a calorie-laden bagel or doughnut in the office kitchen. Instead, give yourself enough time in the morning to enjoy some eggs, a yogurt parfait or oatmeal with fresh fruit. You'll have an extra energy boost and it save you from snacking on whatever's around when you get to work.
Recruit support: It's always a good idea to have a support system when you set a goal. Trusting people you can count on is great because you can talk to them about problems you encounter, and they can provide encouragement to keep you on track. Maybe you can even convince family or friends to detox with you so you can go through the process together.
Keep it light: During the holiday season, you may have eaten a lot of heavy foods that can make you feel slow and weighted down. During your detox, opt for lighter food options like soups, salads, fruits and veggies. You'll feel more energized and less hefty. In the beginning, it's also a good idea to put the sweets and alcohol on the back burner, as they can add unwanted calories.
