Holiday Diet Tips: 6 Tips To Get You Back On Track After The Holidays

Nov 27, 2014 11:35 AM EST | By Food World News Staff Reporter

Holidays are fast approaching and you really don't want to add that extra weight when January comes as a new year requires you to have a fresh start. Here are six helpful tips to get you back on track after weeks of booze, desserts and leftovers.

First is do not beat up yourself and stock up on healthy foods after the holidays. You cannot shed off those extra calories in just a day so you just have to work hard for the coming weeks and start eating healthy again as you remove those leftover in your fridge and replace it with healthier foods.

Next is put food away and organize your fridge in a manner that you would see the healthy foods rather than the unhealthy ones. According to Beth Vallen Ph.D. and an assistant professor at the marketing at Villanova University, the more accessible the food is, the harder it is for one to resist.

Another is using silver foil instead of plastic dinnerware. This is the same as the recently-mentioned as this is another trick for you not to get tempted by that piece of pie that looks at you lovingly and begs you to eat it.

The fourth tip is to eat leftover food sitting down and use smaller plates when you serve yourself with it. It is much harder to process how much you are eating when you just shovel food down your stomach.

Do not, in any way, use the "What the Hell" effect. This effect is a phenomenon that occurs when you ditch your diet instead of actually getting back to eat and your healthy lifestyle. It's that moment when you find yourself just eating a piece of that fruitcake then mindlessly eating the whole thing.

Lastly, do not try to lose weight immediately. You know how diets work and if coupled with exercise, you will be able to get the figure you wanted back in no time. However, do not force yourself to doing extreme measures.
