I love the holidays. Parties with friends and family, giving (and receiving!) gifts, enjoying my grandma’s sugar cookies with a cup of warm tea, and endless Christmas movies on TV.
But by the time December comes to an end, I am bloated, sluggish, and ready to get back on track. Ready to say goodbye to my Holiday weight.
Luckily, it’s easy to start feeling better pretty quickly with just a few changes to my diet.
Here are 5 simple ways to reset your post holiday diet:
- Hydrate. Aim to drink about 64 ounces (or four 16-ounce water bottles) per day. Whip out that new Hydro Flask you got from Santa and take it with you everywhere. Try drinking a full 16 ounces right when you wake up, and you can add a squeeze of fresh lemon in there too if you want some flavor.
- Go back to basics. Keep your meals and snacks simple and clean. Your digestive tract has been bombarded with sugar and fats for the last couple weeks and it needs some love. Think lean proteins, fresh vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.
- Get out and move. Commit to daily movement, whether that be a 10 minute walk or 60 minute Peloton ride. I like to exercise first thing in the morning because it sets the tone for my day.
- Meal prep. I am a huge believer in spending some time to plan and prepare your meals because it will greatly reduce the time you spend cooking and it will make eating healthier easier. You are more likely to go for the celery and nut butter over chips if you already have the celery cut up and the nut butter portioned out.
