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.

    Well dicussions reagarding health not only should be thought provoking, but should also lead to actions. Found appreciable content, but at the same time can recommend a health proposition as cited in ancient scriptures with a curious mix of modern dietory regimes. Please find link as http://www.desidieter.com/ . If somebody feels he/she is not getting success in gaining health and reducing weight, live councellors at site can help to formulate a practical weight loss plan as well.
