We all know the holidays are coming! It’s already mid-October?! This holiday challenge isn’t one you would normally think! Let’s be honest. Who is going to want to deprive themselves of the Sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, and delicious holiday cookies over the next couple of months? Certainly not me!
My challenge to you is to maintain your current weight and work on increasing your caloric intake! … Wait. WUT? How can you possibly eat more and stay the same?
Well, here’s some simple science for you!
Before you start a diet, you have a baseline of average calories you consume in a week. As we go through diets, we decrease our calories, and because of this, we lose weight (initially). During this “diet” phase, our body has adapted to the lower calorie intake and has created a new baseline of calories. One that is lower than you would want to maintain. This is what causes a massive weight gain post-diet.
I would like to work with you to create a baseline that is maintainable during the holidays. Allow you some leeway for that cookie and that extra scoop of mash potatoes. Then as January comes around, we will kick-start you into a fat loss phase that is sustainable! Sign Up and make your appointment to learn more!
