Happy Easter Everyone.  I hope you all enjoy this time and reflect on what’s most important.  To me its family, friends and my health.  I know its easy to overeat when your with your family, but I’m going to share a few tips to help you stay on track with your weight loss goals.

How to avoid gaining weight on a holiday weekend can be a challenge. All the parties and family time can be overwhelming. What can I eat? What should I avoid eating? Can I just splurge this weekend and then start my diet? These are all questions my clients have been asking me for the past week.

One meal could add up to 2000+ calories. These types of splurge meals can set you back weeks with your weight loss goals.

What should you avoid? These are the top 3 things to avoid.

  • #1 Alcohol
  • #2 Soda & fruit-sugar drinks
  • #3 Sweets, cake, ice cream, chips with dip
  • #4 Eat Slow – By eating slow you give yourself a chance to get full.  Its those second and third servings that can add up.  

Set yourself up for success. Change your mind set that its OK if you eat bad this whole weekend. I think many of us make tons of excuses to eat and treat our bodies like we don’t care. We say things like, “This only happens once a year”, “Its been awhile since you’ve seen someone (friend or family member) and tell yourself its OK to eat and drink like its the last supper.” Yes a few cheat meals will happen, but we can put a limit on those and the calories consumed during the day. Take care of your health, It’s your responsibility.
