Holidays and Diets
Work parties, family parties, shopping malls, restaurants…
The fat-storing temptations are everywhere this time of year.
Most of us just say “forgetaboutit,” throw in the towel, and accept gaining 5 to 10 pounds of ugly fat every year.
The normal rationale? I’ll get started AFTER the holidays.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
You can still eat big at night for the holidays WITHOUT getting fatter.
This one holiday tip alone, from the Nutrition Nerd Nick Pineault, can help you stop fat-storage this holiday season.
How do you deal with Holidays and Diets…?
The 3 Simple Meals That STOP Holiday Fat Gain…
By Nick Pineault
This will seem crazy…
…but one of the WORST things you can do during the Holidays is to maintain your regular eating schedule.
Let’s say that you normally eat 2000 calories over 4 meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks).
During the Holidays, you suddenly go from a 500-calorie dinner, to a gigantic 1500-cal dinner most nights.
You don’t have to be a pig to eat that much…a normal dinner, two glasses of red wine, and a copious dessert are enough to bust 1500 calories, if not more.
I don’t know about you, but Gen and I have about 8 to 10 of these dinners between Dec 22nd and January 3rd.
That means 8,000 to 10,000 extra calories consumed, if we stick to a regular eating schedule — or 3 pounds of extra fat.
(Bummer, I know.)
How can you avoid this fat gain that seems inevitable?
It’s simple: eat less during the day, and more at night.
I personally follow this simple plan called the One Day Diet. The entire plan is outlined in this free report:

The short version of it:
– Skip breakfast (saving 500 calories)
– Have two high-protein shakes during the day (if you’re going to have a very large meal at night you might want to do only one shake)
– Focus on one serving of veggies, one of protein and one of carbs at night.
This is always a great plan to fall back on when you’re rushed during the holidays.
And it just so happens to fit in perfectly with the typical big meals at night that we all want to enjoy during December.
You can watch a presentation on exactly how it works at this link below. You’ll quickly see why this is the easiest Holiday Diet ever:
Stick to that plan, and you’ll avoid gaining fat while still enjoying great food with your friends and family.
Combine that with quick workouts at home, and you could be leaner by January.
Keep going strong,
