We’re reaching the time of year where weight-loss goals can easily screech to a halt. Temperatures drop. Our metabolism slows. Rich holiday food and a little extra melatonin in our systems can prompt us to overeat. Despite all the challenges and temptations, you can still stay on track with the right advice and support. We’ve put together 5 helpful tips for sticking to your weight-loss plan this winter.
Our winter weight-loss tips:
1. Embrace indoor activities
If it’s too cold to get out and move, opt for indoor activities – from walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bicycle to low-impact weights or an online exercise video.
2. Stick with a schedule
Schedules make it easier to embrace good habits any time of the year, but especially during the colder months, when motivation is scarce. Planning your meals and exercise and sticking to a routine is a great way to make your goals a reality.
3. Create a holiday party strategy
From baked goods to buffets, it can be hard to eat well at holiday gatherings. Go for healthier foods, like fruits and veggies, first, and limit the not-so-good stuff. It also helps to distract yourself with good company and great conversation!
4. Put a healthy spin on comfort food
Cold-weather comfort food doesn’t have to be full of fat and calories. From broth-based soups to veggie-packed pastas, there are hundreds of great recipes out there for a healthier spin on your comforting favorites.
5. Seek outside support
When your weight-loss motivation is low, or your efforts seem to be falling short, find a friend with similar goals to keep you on track. Or, you can work with the weight management and nutrition experts at Passer to put together a personalized plan. You can count on our team to support you along the way!
