BYS-The Peach Plan
An easy way to remember to be mindful of your holiday indulgences!
P for Protein. Eating more protein keeps you energized, keeps your
carbohydrate intake in check, & ultimately helps with weight maintenance.
Reach for the shrimp before the stuffing.
E-For Eat-In. When you stay at home, especially now, you will almost
always be more aware of what you’re eating. It’s easier not to overdue it
when there’s no menu tempting you, & you’re doing the cooking.
A-is for Activity. Even if it’s just an after-dinner walk around the block with
the dog, make sure activity is a part of your holiday activities. NEAT counts
too. All those unnoticed movements add up. Take out the trash, empty the
dishwasher, run upstairs.
C is for Charting. Be conscious of your intake. Perhaps a journal or an app
tracker that can help you be more mindful would be an easy way to get into
H is for Half. If you systematically cut your portions in half, we promise,
you will not start the new year 10lbs heavier. Try serving what you want on
salad or dessert plates, instead of dinner plates.
We mean it at Beyond Your Scale when we say living well is easier than you
Print our PEACH-y Plan so that this year, you’ll have an easy way to remind
yourself from time to time that you can still enjoy everything the season has to
offer with just a bit of tweaking.
Remember that alcohol, whether it’s a cold beer, mulled wine or a fragrant
eggnog, has alcohol & sugar content & calories.
Happy Holidays From Patrick & Jo-Anna!
