Weekend Weight Gain
According to EverydayHealth.com, people consume an extra 200 calories a day on weekends. I don’t doubt that. I’m home more, and therefore have access to food more often. I also indulge in wine and dessert and dinners.
How to avoid the weekend weight gain?
- Share that fudge sundae with your spouse, friends or kids.
- Go for tiny tastes, like a mini-cheesecake instead of an entire slice, or a single square of chocolate instead of a whole bar.
- Eat a healthy breakfast to control your appetite.
- Eat more whole grains, fruit, and veggies as your day gets started so that you’ll feel full longer and feel satisfied with small splurges.
- Split an entrée or skip the bread basket when eating out, especially if you want a taste of dessert.
- Limit your alcohol — drink water or another calorie-free beverage between drinks — or apply those calories to a food you’d enjoy more.
