Weight Watch, losing those extra pounds after the holidays

Belated Kung Hei Fat Choi ladies, now that the holidays are finally finally over, I feel that I went a little overboard with the holiday food the came with it.  Are you guilty too? Too bad there’s no way to uneat what we ate, but we can do some damage control and get back on track.  I know losing weight can be challenging, but I don’t want you to start 2012 feeling less than your best.

Here’s a few tip on how to lose the guilt:

  • Trade Sugary Juice and Soda for Water – Let’s face it H2O cost less than other beverages, right? Juices, soda, cream & sugar in your coffee all add up, so opt for water instead.
  • Share – I have this saying, “share your food share the calorie”. I know this may sound funny, but if I have a craving for sugary snack, I don’t deprive myself, I go for it but I offer half of it to a friend, this means half the calorie, half the guilt.
  • Always take the stairs – this may sound boring but think of it as “workout” without even “working out.”
  • Watch your portions – Again there is nothing wrong with enjoying your favorites, that is if you keep your portions in check. Sometimes just a little taste is all you need. 
  • Sip tea at the end of the dayGreen tea has been shown to actually increase metabolic rate, thus helping you to burn calories. My favorite tea for detoxifying  is Kaeng Raeng & Twinning in mango & strawberry.

If I can do it ladies, you can too, we just have to keep our eye on the price, besides who doesn’t want to be super summer ready.
