Healthy Holiday Tips from Brad Pitt's Trainer

Healthy Holiday Tips from Brad Pitt's Trainer

Egg nog, honey-glazed ham, cocktails and chocolate…. Who doesn't love the holidays? If you're trying to stay healthy or lose weight during this season of calorie bombs, check out these tips from celebrity trainer Greg Joujon-Roche:
 
Set realistic goals for your holiday exercise but commit to the new plan.
Adjust for the lack of time and motivation during the holidays by simply doing what you can. A little commitment goes a long way.

Start a new, active family tradition.
Instead of gorging on a holiday dinner and taking a nap, share an after-dinner walk or a holiday hike.

Start each meal with a bit of protein.
Protein stabilizes your blood sugar, which helps in the digestion and absorption of fatty foods.

Drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day.
Doing so dilutes and cleanses the body of empty calories, sugars and salt. Start by adding a glass or two a day until you get used to it.

Don't let others pull you off your program.

Stay true to your plan and be true to yourself. Nothing is more confirming or empowering.
