Not everyone enjoys cooking during the holiday season. If you’re among these people or have several restaurant lunch and dinner dates this holiday, there’s plenty of ways to avoid derailing your Phentermine pill-inspired weight loss regimen. Keep these tips in mind for a healthier holiday season.
Ask For Healthy Changes
Request your meal with grilled instead of fried chicken, dressings and sauces on the side, and vegetables instead of French fries. Any healthy swaps you can make that cuts calories without leaving you unsatisfied makes it easy to maintain your fast weight loss regimen.
Say No To Eggnog
Avoid the eggnog and other seasonal libations on special at your favorite establishments. Eggnog is a bona fide calorie bomb that can inspire poor food decisions if it contains brandy or other alcohol. One of the easiest ways to gain weight is to eat while intoxicated for two reasons. One, most people consume junk food when they drink and two, alcohol slows the metabolism as the body gets rid of the toxin. Any food in your system is therefore more likely to be stored as fat instead of being burned as energy.
Don’t Assume Low-Carb Is Best
Learn about a low-carb dish that’s piqued your interest before ordering it, as it may contain many calories despite the lack of carbohydrates. If you still can’t resist the dish despite it being relatively high in calories, ask to get half of it boxed for lunch or dinner the following day.
Order Your Salad First
Request a large salad loaded with vegetables instead of calorie-heavy toppings such as cheese, croutons, and bacon bits. Get the dressing on the side as well. Studies indicate people who order salads first at restaurants generally consume fewer calories than those who didn’t have a veggie-heavy first course.
