Before anything else, let me ask you about your New Year’s resolution. How was your diet resolution? Hi! It is Valentines Season and just like the New Year’s resolution, you need to stick on the track. Valentine’s Day is just a one-day celebration. Do not give in your weight loss goal to a one-day celebration. Celebrate with your loved ones but do not overindulge in eating. You can indulge in dancing, walking or playing games. It is better to create memorable memories than to just eat.
Ways to Celebrate
- Home dinner- have complete nutritional control. Be aware of what you eat and drink. Home is a less crowded place and you can control what you are consuming. Curb sweet cravings by a natural sweetener. Dip fruit in a bar of dark chocolate; this is a pang of very less guilt to carry. Make sure to have a bar of chocolate that is made up of mostly cocoa and has fewer additives. You may also have whipped cream and berries for your dinner date at home. Having Valentine’s culture at home is one way of strengthening the relationship.
- Eating outside- If you decided to get out from home, be wise on your food choices. Take note to count on the calories that you are consuming. Stick to the HCG protocol. Choose lean proteins and have portion control. Do not let someone hinders your weight loss by letting you eat unhealthy foods. Do not forget to drink water to stay hydrated. This can make you full and thus, curbs the hunger. Satisfy yourself by spending happy moments than eating moments with your family or someone.
