Survive The Holidays!The holidays are here and while they can be filled with comfort and joy, they can also be a time of stress and, unfortunately, weight gain! We understand that it's easy to throw your routine and hard work to the wind in favor of overindulgence, yet with a little help, and a lot of will power, we know you will survive without derailing your success.

 

Here are our Top Tips to Help You Stay on Track:

Stick to Your Routine and stock up your shelves with ITG Foods!

Between holiday shopping and more parties than you can possibly squeeze onto a calendar, it's easy to skip your routine to try to get more in -- but try not to, keep it as simple as possible. By sticking with a diet and exercise plan, you will keep your health as priority number one. Staying healthy and active will also help you manage the stress that the holidays are sure to bring. Stock up on your favorite ITG Diet foods to snack on in emergencies or before parties.

Celebrate Family & Friends, Not Food … Increase Physical Activity when Possible!

Oftentimes, holiday parties and get togethers revolve around one thing—food! Keeping in mind that food isn't solely what the holidays are about can help keep things in perspective. By focusing on enjoying the company of the ones you love and not the food they bring, you will keep your relationships and your waistline happy. Another way to enjoy friends and family is to take a walk in your off time and enjoy the festivities.

Don't Drink Your Calories.  Alcohol can be your worst enemy!

One of the major pitfalls in addition to an abundance of food is the tendency to indulge in cocktails during the holiday season. Try to keep in mind that there is more than one way to keep warm during these cold months and while drinking your calories may provide some insulation, it's a lot harder to take off calories than a comfy sweater! Drink an ITG Hot Chocolate or make a different ITG drink and pour it into a wine glass…call it a Protini!  You can do it…save the drinks for Step 3!

Have a Healthy Party Plan

The holidays are meant to be enjoyed, so there is nothing wrong with keeping a full schedule, but be smart by coming up with a plan of attack. Rule number one, never go to a party hungry. Avoid reaching the point where you'll eat anything to quiet you’re growling stomach by having something healthy and filling before you leave the house. ITG Protein packed bars, shakes and smoothies will help you feel full for longer so you have the will power to make better choices. Offer to bring a fun healthy holiday recipe of your own!

Find Support

We know that losing weight and keeping it off is extremely challenging, yet not everyone understands and not everyone will be a positive influence. By identifying a few reliable supporters ahead of time you will know you have someone you can always turn to whether it's to vent your stress or to help get you motivated. Stay close to positive support so you can give and receive the gift of good health!
