When are you going to crave Turkey again? Going to be a while? Yeah me too. There’s a fair chance that we all gained a little weight over Thanksgiving, and most of us are probably looking for a few easy ways to drop a few pounds over the next couple weeks. If this is you, here are a few things you can try…
Just eat less: Take a good look at the food portions you normally eat and find easy ways to cut back. If you’re a chronic over-eater, you may have gotten used to the way you feel when you eat a little too much. Give your body some time to adjust to the change and see how much better you’ll feel. Plus, you can probably save money by turning one meal into two.
Get back to the gym: You remember at the beginning of the year when you were excited about going to the gym a few times a week? It’s time to regain that excitement and get back on a regular workout routine.
Drink lots of water: The easiest calories to cut out of your diet are the liquid ones. Maybe you love coffee, Dr. Pepper, or sweet tea, but committing to drinking only water for a couple weeks can be the easiest and safest way to drop weight quickly.
Bench that favorite meal: We all have that one not-so-healthy favorite meal that we eat quite often. Now is the time to make the sacrifice to avoid eating it for a couple weeks. Replace those meals with a salad each time and see the difference a few meals can make.
