#1 Holiday Eating Tip for Weight Management

There is one holiday eating tip that you need to do every day. Eat protein with every meal.


At your holiday parties, get full on protein foods first. It will help you eat less of the condiments, desserts and other high-fat foods at the party. Most holiday parties have plenty of foods loaded with protein. Nuts, ham, turkey, chicken, fish, etc. are great foods to eat. Protein helps control your blood sugar if you happen to eat carbohydrates. Rapid rises in blood sugar and insulin promotes fat storage and stops fat burning.

It takes your body longer to digest protein (thermic effect), so you will fill fuller for a longer period of time. This thermic effect increases your metabolic rate because it takes your body twice as long to digest and transport protein as compared to carbohydrates. This should help you eat fewer calories during the day.

Protein is also used by your body to repair and rebuild damaged tissues as a result of a tough strength training workout. Quickly digesting protein shakes work well after a workout. Other daytime and nighttime meals could be comprised of slowly digesting protein (such as lean meats) that will give a constant release of protein into your system during the day and overnight.

So, when used right, protein will help you build a lean body and help your fat loss and weight loss efforts.
