Holiday Weight Gain? Prevent it with These Foods

IMG_7400 (2)

The holiday season is suppose to be a time full of merriment, family and thanks.  But instead, it’s often the source of bane, confusion and pain.  Why, you may ask? Well, when people think the holiday season they also think about the ‘holiday-15’, which is like the ‘freshman 15’ but with holiday pounds.  Gingerbread houses, hot apple cider, and honey glazed ham often equate to expanding your waistline ye high and ye wide.

I think that if you eat moderately and are aware with what you are eating, the holiday season wouldn’t be so rueful for most people. Did you also know that Faso Foods has foods that can help you stave off the extra weight?  Yes, we do have a dearth of products that not only help you reduce your waistline but also bring joy to your taste buds.

Weight Loss Options

1.) Grashoff’s Gentleman’s Dark Chocolate: Eating dark chocolate is a great way to trim extra weight. In fact, research supports that the health benefits of dark chocolate include reduced insulin sensitivity, increased feelings of fullness and reduced stress and cortisol levels. Grashoff’s dark chocolate is not only rich in flavor but it has these precise properties that can help you handle stress and increase feelings of fullness.

2.) Nutfield’s Macademia Nuts:  Macademia nuts are a great source of fiber, full on antioxidants, cholesterol free and are jam packed with potassium. Nutfield’s macademia nuts help regulate brain function, help in the proper growth of bones, and also enhance digestion.

3.) Moriba’s Hibiscus Tea: Hibiscus tea has often been touted as a  weight loss tool.  This tea also has amylase inhibitors that affects the way the body absorbs fats and carbohydrates.  These inhibitors cut absorption and help produce significant weight loss.

4.) Moriba’s Hibiscus Juice: Not only is the tea great for weight loss but the juice does wonders as well. It’s full of antioxidants, rich with bioflavonoids, and can help reduce bloating.

In fact, if you eat the right foods, watch your calorie intake and couple in exercise than you will yield the right results. Dr. Oz is an acclaimed physician with erudite knowledge on eating healthy and with weight loss tips.  Dr. Oz’s advice is tried and true.

Dr. Oz Weight Loss Advice

1.) A pedometer can help keep track of your steps. If you’re not getting 10,000 steps a day, you’re not moving enough.

2.) Get your Zzzzzs. Sleep deprivation alters levels of hormones in the body that regulate hunger, causing an increase in appetite.

3.) Identify the emotional triggers that lead you to seek unhealthy comfort food. Picture your goal weight the next time a trigger strikes to help you resist temptation.

4.) Pass on pop. You’ll be amazed by how much weight you drop by simply switching to water.

5.) People who eat breakfast have a better shot at losing and maintaining weight loss.

6.) Pick up a 5- or 10-pound weight at the gym and visualize that weight coming off. Holding the weight in your hands helps bring home just how heavy even 5 pounds of extra fat can be.

7.) Do your best to ensure you’re not eating after 7 o’clock at night. You’re more likely to make unhealthy choices and less likely to sleep as well after a late meal.

8.) Make it a point to use the steps whenever possible. Use the bathroom on a different floor at work, take the stairs at the bus station, the airport or the mall.

9.) Keeping good posture will not only strengthen your core, but will also add a small extra-calorie burn, because you’re working slightly harder to maintain the position.

10.) Don’t confuse thirst with hunger. Drink a glass of water when you feel hungry to see if that’s what you’re really craving.
