10 Tips to Guarantee Weight Gain during the Holidays.
Diet! Diet! Diet! Let's face it, you expect to overeat during the holidays so why not get a jump on weight loss now? If you're feeling truly ambitious, try dieting during the holidays, too; the deprivation will be highly effective at driving you to overeat. Our real advice: Learn to eat what you want now in a way that leaves you feeling great. Then the holidays won't pose any special challenge, and you can enjoy them fully.
Work out extra hard and long every day. You can make up for those times during the holidays when you won't want or have the time to do anything. Our real advice: When we overdo on exercise, we're more likely to burn out, or worse yet, injure ourselves, and guarantee we don't want to do anything. Slow and steady wins the race.
Start weighing yourself daily. You'll be able to follow your weight up and down the scale, and cut back even more when you've gained an ounce. Then you'll heighten your feelings of deprivation even more, further guaranteeing holiday overindulgence. Our real advice: Toss out the scale now and for always. It generally doesn't give the instant gratification we seek, and often negatively impacts our motivation to take care of ourselves.
