CHRISTMAS can be a challenging time of the year for so many reasons. People become anxious that they will undo the great work they’ve achieved over the year because traditionally the Xmas period is full of temptations and excesses.
I know from the comments in our private Facebook group that Christmas brings on huge food anxiety. It can take a different type of effort to keep going.
So how would it feel if you had a control boost?
How would it feel if you could stay within your limits and were able to simply look forward to the New Year, knowing you had nothing to worry about apart from simply continuing on your journey?
Well, now you can!
Here’s a special pre-Christmas gift from me. It’s a download which will help to take the worry out of the seasonal anxieties and enable you to enjoy Christmas without going over the top!
It’s designed to play from the blog NOT via your app. So return to the blog and listen either before you go to bed or when you’re relaxing at some other time of the day.
I’d recommend you start now and listen until the end of December. That’s it! Peace of mind for Christmas!
Below the download you’ll find some other useful tips on keeping the pounds off at this time of year.
Keep The Weight Off Over Xmas
What else can you do to keep the weight off over Xmas?
In several studies researchers intentionally overfed people and discovered that some people put on weight and some people didn’t. Weird, eh?
Further experiments were carried out to see what actually happens inside people’s bodies that determines whether they store excess food as fat or burned it off.
So what was happening?
Well, the people who burn it off naturally increased their movement and those who put on fat did not. We’re not talking about going to the gym or doing intensive workouts.
We’re talking about natural everyday movement that seems to stop during the holiday season!
This type of movement is called NEAT. And it stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis.
This is the energy expended for everything we do that is not sleeping, eating or sports-like exercise. It ranges from the energy expended by walking, typing, performing physical work around the house/garden to running around after kids and general day-to-day activity.
So how do we put this into practice right now?
Well, have a think about CONSCIOUSLY increasing your NEAT during this holiday season. Make time for post-meal walks and stay ACTIVE during the day (even if it’s cold outside!)
The message is: Keep your bum off seats as much as possible!
