What to do with the holidays weight gain

Hello friends. The holidays passed and I am here to say, that they were amazing for me.  I was not able to write a post here, because I had to go back in my home town to meet my family and friends for Christmas. I received a lot of e-mails saying:

"The holidays are coming, I am afraid that I am going to gain fat."
"Do I have to worry about the holidays?"
"I am probably not going to eat anything so I don't get fat."


OK I understand that you are really trying to prove to everybody that you can really succeed and get the body you have always wanted. But listen, this happens once in a year. One day that you can relax and eat things that you have been craving for months now. Of course I don't mean start eating all the chips, eat all the cookies, eat all the white bread, EAT ALL THE SUGAR.  Eat what ever you want, but don't overdo it.

Many people make the mistake and they pick perfection over longer lasting transformation. Now if you are trying to hard (no sugar ever again, no chips ever again, no burgers ever again) you are going to give in faster. You can do something else, you can taste once a week what you are craving and enjoy it. In time that craving will disappear.
The holidays is that time of the year when you can finally relax and have some fun.

So it happens once in the year, have your time don't miss it out.

And besides think of it like this. From all of the food you are going to consume your body will explode with energy. You can always just go in a different room and do some cardio the next day. Body weight cardio increases your metabolism to a level where you burn a lot of calories and fat. So do some push-ups, squats, lunges, and you are going to burn a lot of the calories you have taken the last night.

So there you go, you don't have to worry about anything during the holidays, have fun, and enjoy your self.

    1. Agree absolutely with you. I recommend a few "cheat days" to my students, because a few days of non-adherence to a strict regimen of eating and working out won't derail a fitness program - and the joy of stuffing oneself, even if for just a day, can keep the enthusiasm and energy going!

  9. That is some great advice! It's ok to give ourselves a break from time to time as long as we don't over-do it.

  11. Hey, I don't get too worried about holiday weight gain. Eating sensibly and exercising potion control helps to keep things under control. Focus on enjoying the holiday. Sip water often and keep away from the snacks table. Get people together for quick game outdoors.

    1. I think holiday weight gain can be quickly reversed back to normal with an effective system such as the 14 Day Rapid Fat Loss Plan or others. It takes much less discipline and commitment than regular weight loss.

    1. I second this sentiment. One can always tell if the advise being given comes from reading a book, or from actual real world experience with bodybuilding and muscle gain programs.

  20. Anabolic steroids work very differently from other drugs of abuse, and they do not have the same acute effects on the brain. The most important difference is that steroids do not trigger rapid increases in the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is responsible for the rewarding "high" that drives the abuse of other substances.

    However, long-term steroid use can affect some of the same brain pathways and chemicals—including dopamine, serotonin, and opioid systems—that are affected by other drugs, and thereby may have a significant impact on mood and behavior.

    Abuse of anabolic steroids may lead to aggression and other psychiatric problems, for example. Although many users report feeling good about themselves while on steroids, extreme mood swings can also occur, including manic-like symptoms and anger ("roid rage") that may lead to violence. Researchers have also observed that users may suffer from paranoid jealousy, extreme irritability, delusions, and impaired judgment stemming from feelings of invincibility.

  21. Not just holidays. I went on a holiday last fortnight and I am now over 3 pounds heavier. Guess all those pizza, pasta dinners and gellatos do add up. Considering I am already 15 pouds overweight this is going to be tough to get rid of. Your common sense advice is what I am going to follow. Thanks.

  22. Vacations and long weekend holidays make for the biggest weight gain. I sometimes wish there were no holidays because I can't seem to resist the goodies and have to work my butt off after.

  23. Off with the holidays I say, LOL. Jokes aside it is is important to keep an eye on what you eat when on vacation. Share a dessert, skip the entrees and load up on fresh fruits seasonal in that area.

  24. Following a simple diet of avoiding too many desserts and sugary drinks, Sticking to reasonable potion sizes while enjoying all the local delicacies should be good plan of action whether on vacation or on holidays. What ever you say can rid of holidays Jane!
