During the holidays, most gyms are closed – but that doesn’t mean you cannot exercise! Even if it means bundling up and going for a 30 minute power walk outside, that will help you to digest your holiday meal and feel lighter on your feet. It’s also a great time to use that exercise DVD that’s been sitting on your shelf.
When you consume your holiday meal – make sure your plate is full of protein and fiber. Fruits and vegetables, turkey, these are the foods that should consume the majority of your plate. The other stuff – mashed potatoes, stuffing, bread - is ok to eat, just make sure the portion sizes are smaller than your protein and fiber servings.
Doing ab exercises can also help combat the holiday bloat.
