Thanksgiving Success for Weight-Loss Minded
Minneapolis Personal Trainer Sets Up Thanksgiving So You Can Succeed With It, Not Just Survive It!
I love Thanksgiving. I love the entire holiday season. Were it not for the 6 lbs .that the average American gains during the holidays, I wouldn't have as much job security. :) Since I want to work myself out of a personal training career, I will share with you how to make Thanksgiving a success.
Two quick things before we get to the main course:
1) If you like today's blog, pass it on to your weight-loss minded friend, family member, or colleague.
2) If you like today's blog, email Adam (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask about his "Little Ebook on Fat Loss and Weight Loss" that will hit cyberspace next week. :)
Thanksgiving Success Weight-Loss Tip #1: Go Light on Wednesday
You are about to give your body the feast of the year on Thursday, so don't go to town on Wednesday. Shoot for 1200-1500 calories on Wednesday, and don't eat anything after 8pm. Drink 64 oz of water today as well!
Thanksgiving Success Weight-Loss Tip #2: Exercise 2 hours before mealtime
On the big day, give yourself a big workout 2 hours before mealtime. Easier said than done, right? Well, let the turkey cook, sneak to the bedroom or basement and do all the squats, push ups, bicep curls, tricep dips on the staircase, of full-blown weight training you can do. Don't do cardio (unless that is your only option), pump iron! And hard! This will stimulate your metabolism and get your body ready for the big meal.
Thanksgiving Success Weight-Loss Tip #3: Enjoy the best meal of the year
Go for it. Whether or not you deserve it, go ahead and eat like a normal American on Thanksgiving. Don't kill yourself, but certainly enjoy.
Thanksgiving Success Weight-Loss Tip #4: Eat Your Left-Overs by 7pm
Most people have "the meal" in the afternoon. That's fine. Prepare your palet for the double-dose around 7pm. If we are going to go nuts on calories, it's best not to put too many calories in the system late at night. Start "left-over dinner" around 7pm.
Thanksgiving Success Weight-Loss Tip #5: Drink 64 oz of Water on Turkey Day
It's a must! With all the toxins and garbage going into your body, make sure water is present enough to flush them out. Throughout the course of the day, drink water. I like to have a 64 oz container with me to make sure I down the right amount. If you do water well on Thanksgiving, you will set your body up for a successful toxin flush out on Friday (note: the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year for plumbers. Drink water so your body can flush toxins more easily, which will help keep the plumber away!).
