I know you do not want to hear it but before you know it we are in the holiday season. My challenge to you is get ahead of the holiday pounds. Let’s start a healthy routine now to get a jump-start on establishing healthy habits.

Our bodies love consistency, for better or for worse. If you are currently in the habit of skipping breakfast or lunch, let’s start with incorporating breakfast or lunch as a goal today. Meal skipping is the number one way to slow down your metabolism. It also leads into eating more at the next time you do eat.

If you have been in the habit of “saving your calories” for the dinner our or the meal at the party and do not eat all day…… Please STOP! This actually causes your metabolism to slow down. It takes 2-4 weeks to change a behavior into a habit. Let’s get started now and before the holiday parties start you will have healthy habits. Then we can avoid the New Year’s Resolution weight loss.
