Trying to stay on track over the holidays!? Decide what it is that you want! Do you want to have a more free and relaxed day? Do you want to track your macros and stay on your plan? Do you want to eat intuitively, but clean!? Making a decision ahead of time helps you to feel in control before you head into the day.
If it’s a free day/cheat day, try eating a light breakfast and lunch and save some caloric room for your evenings meal(s). Enjoy, relax and remember that one day of eating in a surplus isn’t going to derail you, but don’t head into the night thinking this is your LAST MEAL of your life, and eat as much as you can and as fast as you can.
Tracking? Again light breakfast and much so you have lore room to be flexible! Maybe low carb all day so have more room for carbs like pie and potatoes in the evening! You can bring a scale, but honestly unless you’re on prep leave it at home! Eyeball and trust that you’re a macro 👑!! Have some pie!! Try not restrict certain foods! Maybe look at what a serving of pie will “cost” you in macros ahead of time so you can see what size serving you want to have!
Intuitively eating!? Don’t eat until you’re overly stuffed. Pay attention to hunger signals. Don’t restrict any one food, be open to having everything but be mindful about your food choices and portions.
Eat foods that make you feel good! Be aware of the foods that make you feel sluggish and or hurt your gut. Listen to your body. ✨
Avoid overuse of butter and sauces.
Drink lots of water.
Fill up on veggies first so you’re not starving when the goodies are in front of you! (Fiber and volume!)
Avoid adding salt, more than likely the meals will have been salted while cooking. 🥂If you’re drinking alcohol try and avoid foods high in fats. Ideally stick to lean meats and veggies, for less “damage”. Be ready for a great workout the following day!🏋🏻♀️ ✨Enjoy and savor each bite, bless your food. Ask it to bring your body the nutrients physically and spiritually that you need, and that it satisfy you fully. 🙏 REMEMBER MEMORIES OVER MACROS✨
