Stay Fit with Dee this Christmas

Happy Holidays 😀

With Christmas only being tomorrow, we know that a lot of eating is going down lol

In fact, the eating has already started with a lot of people including myself and it’s safe to say that some lbs are going to be added on just in time for the New Year 😉

But it’s all good as today I’ll be sharing with you some tips to help you avoid some unnecessary weight gain for 2014. These tips can also be used as apart of everyday life and not just Christmas 😀

Dee’s Fat Buster Christmas Tips

 1. Never Eat Until Bloated – I know I know, we’ve all been there before – When the food taste so good that you struggle to put the knife and fork down.

You’re feeling full already but the flavours are so immense that you can’t help but to keep going. You feel that bloated feeling coming on but you can  still some how find space for desert.

You chew your way through that cake and ice cream and hear a knock at the front door …

It’s your long time friend Mr Bloat.

He’s come to visit you and plans to stay for a very long time lol…

The Lesson

Never eat until you feel bloated, it’s really not a nice feeling. Portion control becomes a myth when the food enslaves you. And that leads me onto number 2..

2. Portion Control – Fat people are fat because they cannot control their portion sizes. That’s not me being harsh, it’s the reality.

imagesConsider the amount of money fat loss companies make for selling “special” fat loss foods, products and “special” diet programmes.

If you look carefully at the foods they sell, you will see that  it’s your normal everyday foods – However, it’s been portioned down accordingly to help promote fat loss via a smaller daily calorific intake. If portion control is too much for you…

3. Put it down & Walk Away – Before I continue, just to let you know…

These are all tips that I have used previously or still use to this day. They’ve all worked for me at one time or another and have also worked for many others whom I’ve shared them with. I wasn’t always in the shape that I am in today due to my weakness in controlling portion sizes at one stage in my life.  However, my love for food still remains 🙂

But back to what I was saying…

Sometimes you just gotta put the knife and fork down and walk away. I know it can be hard sometimes, but depending on how hard you find it, you’ve got to take a step back and really ask yourself:

“Does food enslave me or is the food my slave”

4. Breath Mints on stand by – This tip has worked with EVERYONE that I’ve told. When you know you’re not hungry but you’re still craving for a naughty snack, ice-cream for example – Throw that breath mint in your mouth and see how much you want ice-cream now lol.

Crazy little tricks but they do work. The last thing you want to do is eat with your mouth tasting of minty freshness.

5. Alcohol Alert – It’s Christmas – It’s inevitable the drinks are going to be flowing and people are going to be getting merry – I mean, isn’t that why they call it Merry Christmas 😉

If consuming alcohol, spirits contain less calories compared to say a pint of beer which contains an enormous amount of calories. Did someone say “Beer Belly”.

Binge drinking not only gains the pounds and adds inches to the waist, it also leaves you feeling like an absolute mess the next day – Did someone say “Hang Over”

6. Could you chew any faster – Again, I know the food taste good and the spices combined with the flavours are creating aromas that are just out of this world…

But Jeez…Slow down a little lol

I’ve seen people eat like it was their first time seeing food…EVER hahaha

Seriously, when you chew your food, go slow and appreciate the flavours and textures. Give your brain and stomach time to communicate with each other to signal and let you know when it’s time to stop eating.

When you eat too fast and you full your stomach before your brain acknowledges it, by the time your brain is aware of what is going on…

It’a your friend Mr Bloat again…

7. Boredom Strikes – You ever been bored and decided to go and see what was inside the fridge lol. Since when did boredom and eating become friends?

Boredom & Eating – How do the two even interlink?

I mean imagine, you’re sitting in your room bored whilst browsing the Internet and randomly you think to yourself:

“Maybe I’ll go have a burger or even just eat for the sake of it”

It’s actually quite funny when you think about it like that. At times like this though, you’re better of finding something else to do rather than fridge hunting.

Boredom eaters are usually on a deeper level trying to fill an emotion. That’s why whenever I find myself going  through the (BES) “Boredom Eaters Syndrome”

I will always ask myself:

“David, are you really hungry?”

And if the answer is no, I then ask;

“Dave, what emotion are you trying to fill bro?”

boredom quotes

And there we have it folks. Some tips that if consciously applied and put to use, can greatly help you not only this Christmas but for 2014 and the foreseeable future.

I will be back before the end of the year to wrap up 2013…

Until then – Have a Wonderful Christmas guys and don’t eat too much 🙂

~Much Love~

David
