We all have a hard time eating too much over the holidays. Its hard not to indulge in all the goodness that is thanksgiving, or drinking way too much on New Year’s. Now you only have about a month left before you have to shed your winter skin and get into your beach cloths. Here are a few tips and trick to help you get ready for the inevitable.
Eat more grapefruit. Eating grapefruit helps in more than one way. Grapefruit is full of water, so eaten before a meal it helps you fill up and eat less. It also helps your insulin (fat burning hormone). Grapefruit has properties in it that actually target and burn off belly fat.
Go out dancing. There is nothing more fun than spending time getting crazy with your friends. Even if you drink way too much, you won’t even touch the calories you burn while dancing all night. Your butt will thank you in the morning.
Spice things up. Kissing burns a good amount of calories. Around 15 for just one minutes. Imagine doing it for an hour, among other things. This will seriously help your love life, and help you drop some pounds. That is a win win situation.
Bring on the blues. I know I already talked about dancing. Dancing is a great exercise, yes, but the color blue is an appetite suppressant. Eating off a blue plate can help you cut calories in half. Ever wonder why your favorite restaurants are all decked out in reds and oranges? They have the opposite effect. So dress in blue, eat off blue plates or even paint your rooms blue. Hey, Painting is exercise.
Bring on the heat. Spicy foods may not be your favorite things, but I’m sure you have attempted far worse things to lose weight. Adding a few dashes of hot sauce, or some peppers to your meals helps temporarily boosts your metabolism. Adding something spicy to each meal will turn your body into a fat burning machine.
We all know to eat less and exercise more. Make sure to not eat too little. If you starve your body you will not see results, and honestly….nobody’s got time for that. Weight loss is 80 percent diet, and 20 percent exercise. Watch your intake, keep a food diary if you need to. Get up and move as much as possible. You can get there by summer. You still have time.
