4 Tips to Avoiding Excessive Sugar This Holiday Season

As the holidays approach, so does a never-ending stream of holiday parties, which means an excess of sugary foods and drinks.

But instead of leaving the party feeling guilty because of what you ate, we want to help you have a more enjoyable holiday season!

That’s why we have some tips for you to help you resist sugar during the holidays and stay on track with your holiday weight loss goals.

1. Find Balance

One way to enjoy the holiday season without overindulging in sugar is to find balance.

Indulge in moderation, and be sure to include plenty of healthy options at your holiday gatherings.

This will help you feel your best and avoid a sugar coma!

2. Avoid Triggers

Another way to reduce your sugar intake is to avoid triggers.

During large gatherings, this could mean avoiding any type of disaster or stressful situations that might tempt you to reach for sugary foods as a coping mechanism.

Whether it's walking away from a conversation you aren’t enjoying or completely avoiding conversations that make you anxious, it’s important to avoid ANY trigger that will cause overindulgence.

Instead, try to focus on self-care and relaxation as much as possible during the holiday season, whether that’s going outside for a quick breather, taking more time to meditate, or completely skipping some holiday parties.

3. Plan Ahead

Planning ahead is another great way to reduce your sugar intake.

When you know you’ll be attending a holiday party or event, eat a healthy snack or half a scoop of Meal Replacement Shake beforehand so that you’re not tempted to overeat unhealthy snacks or dessert items.

And when you use half a scoop of a Shake, you still get to enjoy the dessert flavors you love, like Blueberry Cheesecake and Pineapple Whip!

Plus, you’re blocking your cravings both now AND for hours with 3 different types of protein with our unique Tri-Phase Protein blend!

This will help you stay on track and make it easier to resist temptation!

4. Enjoy Other Activities

Finally, one of the best ways to resist sugar is by enjoying other activities during the holiday season.

There are so many fun things to do this time of year like decorating, shopping, baking healthy snacks, watching festive movies, etc.

Focusing on these activities helps take your mind off of sugary snacks and makes you less likely to indulge!

The holiday season can be a difficult time to resist sugar cravings but using these tips can create a healthy balance that will help you achieve your weight loss goals AND enjoy yourself!
