Do you ever get sick of reading articles that give you tips on how NOT gain weight during the holidays? They recommend sticking with party treats such as the shrimp cocktail, due to its high protein, low calorie and low sugar content. And steer clear of your grandmother’s fudge squares, or only have one of those buttery, powdered sugar cookies. But preferably at the beginning of the night, so you can satisfy your cravings and not feel the need to eat more later.
To heck with those tips!
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s are celebrations. Do you know what people throughout history have done during times of celebration? They danced, gathered together with those they love, and… they ATE. They didn’t just eat, they feasted! Only in our modern age have we begun to give tips on how to celebrate with moderation during holidays.
So, our recommendation to you is not to become a complete glutton over the holidays. You and your Christmas tree shouldn’t wear the same skirt size. However, it’s time to throw out the constant recommendations of what to eat and what not to eat. Enjoy that sausage ball! Drink up that deliciously rich eggnog and gobble down a piece of pecan pie. Love it. Letting go a little bit makes us happy. We did it as kids! Why can’t we now?
When New Year’s rolls around, and you loved the food so much that you kept a pound or two of it with you, call us. New Year’s resolutions don’t have to include months of sweat and restrictions. Our sculpting methods will trim off the fat almost as easily as it was to bake those two dozen cheese wafers.
