Jeans too tight?

If you started the holidays with good intentions, but couldn’t stop yourself from feasting, don’t panic. It happens to the best of us. Don’t start going on a crazy crash diet or go to any type of extreme measures. There is hope! Here are my top tips to getting rid of the bloat and loosening up tight pants.

  1. Get back on your regular foods. Instead of eating Thanksgiving leftovers for the next few days, this will only add to the bloat and weight gain, go back to eating your regular foods you were eating back before the holiday.
  2. Choose healthier food choices. We all know that most holiday foods are high in fat, sodium, and calories which cause inflammation to our bodies. By eating real whole foods with anti-inflammatory properties like fruits and veggies, you will start losing the water weight and bloat within no time.
  3. Drink more water. You have to drink water to lose water. Flushing your body out with water will help flush out the toxins and junk that you ate over the holiday. It will help all the systems of your body function faster. So drink some H20!
  4. Get active. You overate and now you feel sluggish. Time to get moving so you can burn those extra calories. By getting back to your regular exercise routine, you will feel back to you pre-holiday state in no time. It may take a couple exercise sessions, but keep with it and you will feel great again.
  5. Stay positive and patient. If the extra calories aren’t coming off as fast as you like, stay positive. It takes a few minutes to eat hundreds of calories and a few hours to burn it. You can eat a lot of calories within minutes and it takes hours to exercise it off. So be patient and positive with yourself. You will get it off. It just takes time.

Follow these simple tips and you will feel back to you in no time!

Have a healthy weekend!
