Prepare Your Body

Bombarding your body with all that extra food and calories can take a harsh toll. Gently prepare your belly by adding 24 grams of daily fiber and taper the size of your meals leading up to a big meal. Be sure to also drink at least two cups of water prior to all meals.

Recent research has shown that older adults who do this lose more weight than those who don’t pre-meal hydrate

  1. I ate to enjoy myself from last November to December 27th, and I still managed to lose 1 pound by January 1st. I did the following:

    *Did cardio (treadmill or stationary bike) every single day for 40-60 minutes, even on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day (yes, it was that serious).

    *Had one serving of food at my family’s house and did not take anything home. I did allow myself two servings of pie, though.

    *The day AFTER Thanksgiving (and Christmas), I worked out for 60 minutes, and the rest of the days, I just did my usual 30 minute workouts.

    *Allowed myself the occasional snack in between Thanksgiving and Christmas (2-3 small/medium sized cookies, one candy bar or cupcake, or a bowl of macaroni and cheese, and not every single day. More like every 2 days).

    *Snapped back to my usual lifestyle 2 days after Christmas.

    Like I said, I didn’t gain a pound. That’s just what worked for me personally…
