The most common mistake the dieters commit when preparing for a special event is skipping breakfast, snacks and meals before the event takes place. This technique is highly discouraged because when you starve yourself, your body starts withholding fats instead of losing them. And since you haven’t eaten anything before the event, you are most likely to overeat during the event. You will consume more than what your stomach can take.

Instead of starving yourself, eat your phase-specific breakfast diligently. Eat it within 30 minutes of waking. before you start exercising. Remember that breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

2. Eat Fat-based snacks on Phase 3

3. Shift your FMD Phases for Thanksgiving Day

Since Thanksgiving Day falls on Thursday, it is hard to deal with the holiday while you’re in Phase 2. Granted you’re following the ideal fast metabolism diet plan, Phase 2 will mainly restrict you from eating most of the food served on the table. Instead, we’re going to shift your FMD phases for the next fortnight so that Thanksgiving Day will fall on Phase 3. You can apply the phase-rotation for Thanksgiving 2016 below:

  • Sunday, Nov 20, Phase 3

Read more to know about how you can handle the Christmas and holiday season with ease and without worrying your diet!

  1. Don’t shut your metabolism. Keep it going.

Sometimes, when we think of holidays, they’re all about food. Let’s say tomorrow is Christmas day, and we decide to drown ourselves with hunger tonight to have an empty stomach for the coming big celebration, which is a bad idea. How did it became a bad idea? Well, since you’re hungry, you’re going to eat a lot more than how much your stomach can only intake. You’re torturing your tummy. You should eat five times per day, that includes three healthy meals and two protein-based snacks every day, and keep it going to the holidays. You’re going to be needing this to keep your blood sugar normal and metabolism stable. Just so the holiday foods can be as prepared as you to be thrown in to your stomach without worrying about your metabolism.

2.Be prepared and do not be alarmed that there’s going to be a holiday!

Keep your stress hormones calmed when going to a holiday celebration, but how? By filling your tummy beforehand the right way. It’s just the way it is. And there’s also a fact. You’re going to avoid craving for food if you’re feeding your body the foods it need to keep your metabolism burning!

  1. Ask yourself: To drink or not to drink just one?

Actually, you can just have clear liquors namely rum, vodka and gin since they are cleaner. They contain less chemicals and fake ingredients. BUT, still know that alcohol is VERY dehydrating. Better to drink eight ounces of spring water for every intake of drink. If you couldn’t help yourself drinking wine or liquor, just stick to the organic, sulfire-free wine.

  1. No to beer. I insist.

Considered also as liquid bread, but be reminded that you don’t want to shut your metabolism. It is because beer is about carbohydrates- it has more carbohydrates than wine or liquor. Remain loyal to your banner- “Less carb diet” or strongly “No carb diet”.

  1. Have more of protein-heavy foods.

Eat 10 to 15 grams of protein every two hours. Don’t think that this is exhausting, think that this is for your own body to be prepared from the thought that you’ll be eating a lot. Protein rich foods can be turkey jerky, deviled eggs, hummus and veggies, cold cuts, or shrimp cocktail. Aim this! You’ll be glad that by doing this, your metabolism will be told that it’s time to get into the high gear. Retain to your mind that your body can handle anything as long as your metabolism is ready for it.

  1. Choose homemade sweets more. They are made with love.

Let us count the differences of your goodies bought from stores from my sweets made at home. First, your store-bought goodies are processed and contain many artificial ingredients, while my homemade sweets are healthier and they metabolize faster- and they’re made with love. Right? Second, I think the first one is already enough.

  1. Like Live, Laugh, Love, Mine is Eat, Drink, Be Merry.

When eating, one must accompany it with enjoyment. Know that this releases feel-good endorphins, which in turn signals your thyroid to release fat-burning hormones and also causes the decrease of another hormone- leptin. This turn of healthy hormone chain of events will excite your body to release stored fat for fuel helping you to feel full and keep you to overeat.

Christmas holiday season is meant for us to celebrate and enjoy these occasions. We can’t have ourselves constantly worrying and dreading these events just because it might sabotage our diet. Follow these fast metabolism diet holiday tips and enjoy the holiday season! Merry Christmas to everyone!
