Eat Less = Lose Weight? Not Always

December 26th, 2017

  • Before you hit the New Year’s Eve buffet, fill up on nuts. This will help curb your appetite and you’ll be less tempted by the bowls of potato chips or fried hors d’oeuvres.
  • Also, opt for grilled or baked salmon instead of prime rib as your main course.
  • Don’t deny yourself dessert! Christmas and Hanukkah come just once a year. Sample the leftover Holiday cookies, but try not to eat a whole dozen of gingerbread men.
  • Were you busy this Holiday season shopping, wrapping and cooking? Absolutely.  Does this give you a reprieve from working out? No. If you want to maintain your energy level, receive a good night’s rest and stave off coughs and colds, you need to make time for fitness – for your health and your kids’ health. Now is probably not the best time to start a diet.  Instead, try to maintain your current weight and make a promise to lose any extra pounds after the Holidays by visiting your personal trainer or taking athletic training classes.  Or, if you know a child or young adult with special needs who needs fitness motivation, suggest our ZamDance class on Friday nights from 5pm – 6pm.  Our Friday night ZamDance class allows participants to express themselves through dance in a way that builds confidence, creates empowerment and unites a community that accepts them as they are – while in a glow-in-the-dark environment. Happy holiday eating!]]>
