In the middle of all the holiday festivities, it’s almost inevitable not to gain weight. There are ways though to enjoy the parties while still being mindful of our body. Here are some doable dieting tips, as shared by beauty expert Dr. Claudine Roura.
- Consider a Wellness Party.
If you happen to be the party host, consider a wellness party with guilt-free menu to takes center stage in your party! This activity not only fires up the happy hormone endorphin with the added benefit of burning 380-400 calories in an hour, it will also leave your guests to be more excited with your specially prepared multi-course meal. Of course, opt for a spread that’s tasty but with only guilt-free ingredients to boot.
- Refresh and Hydrate
“Don’t be confused between hunger and thirst, make sure to drink minimum of 8 glasses to avoid unnecessary food cravings, advises Dr. Claudine. “Since water is the basic foundation for the body to efficiently and effectively burn calories, you don’t have to wait for yourself to feel thirsty before downing yourself with water as it’s already a sure sign of dehydration.” But if you don’t want to miss the fizz and save tons of calories at the same time, there’s always a sparkling water as a satisfying alternative.
- “Binge Fest” is Never a Good Idea.
“Save yourself from low blood sugar and high cortisol levels, which means you’ll crave for sugary and caloric food,” warns Dr. Claudine. So a word to wise: Don’t fast in the hours leading up to the party and go all out uncontrollably. Instead, fuel and fill yourself with fruits, salad, raw veggies, and nuts few hours before the feast.
- Choose Wisely.
Whether it’s a buffet or a sit down affair, always take time to scan the menu and pick only the items that are considered a winner in your repertoire of favorites: flavorful, filling, and festive. Easy on sweets, fatty, and oily food and start off with greens and clear soup. Since this is a season to splurge, pick the types you don’t usually eat at home such as steak, lobster, or lechon.
