How the heck am I going to…

NOT drink too much

NOT eat all those carbs

NOT eat my favorite holiday treats and desserts

NOT completely miss all my workouts

NOT gain a ton of weight

 

Because if you let the month of December go to hell in a hand basket

Then come January 2nd…

You’re gonna be in the “I feel like crap” zone.

That’s definitely a place you don’t want to be.  I hear ya…

It might be fun at the moment…

But I don’t want you to regret it come January.

However…I still want you to enjoy yourself!

 

So what that means is this…

 

What if I told you that I knew a way around all that.

What if I told you that I had a “SECRET” weapon Holiday Survival Guide that helped you navigate around the holiday parties by giving a checklist on exactly how to avoid letting yourself go while still enjoying yourself.

Because I figured out a way…

It’s called My Body’s Holiday Party Survival Guide.

Here’s the Science Behind It

When used correctly, cheat meals can be navigated through the holiday parties without destroying your body.

They can reset hormones responsible for metabolism and insulin regulation, replenish glycogen for increased energy, and keep calorie-burning and fat-torching mechanisms high.

Implementing a cheat meal also ensures that you keep your metabolism up running on full blast. It can “reboot” your metabolism or give your metabolism a big kick-start. The key to all of this is a hormone called Leptin.

Leptin, a protein mainly produced by fat tissue, regulates appetite and energy balance in the body.

Leptin plays a key role in energy expenditure and regulating energy intake.

Leptin is actually an anti-starvation hormone, so we can use it to our advantage! Numerous studies have shown that fasting (or following a very low calorie diet) lowers leptin levels.

In fact, studies have shown that within 24 hours of fasting, leptin levels decrease to 30 percent of their normal value.1

If we don’t cheat every so often in our diet, our leptin levels will continue to fall. This is most likely going to cause us to go on a huge binge anyway.

The key to the holiday survival guide is to make sure your leptin levels are low BEFORE you cheat. That way, you can cause a spike in your leptin levels AFTER your cheat meal.

Sustained caloric-deficit diets also cause the body to attempt to conserve energy by decreasing levels of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, which help regulate and maintain metabolism.

So here’s what you to do exactly…

Holiday Survival Guide Checklist:

  1. In between parties:

Drink lots of water in between parties. Your diet should consist of high protein, moderate fat intake and very low in carbohydrates.  Try to maintain both a strength training workout regimen and aerobic cardio together.  Even if you only get 1-2 solid days in.  High intensity for a short time.

  1. The day before your party:

For the day before a holiday party you’re going to have a diet with a high protein, moderate intake of healthy fats from meat, eggs, avocados, almonds and coconut oil You’re also going to cut out carbs completely.  No carbs all day.  You’ll get your energy from the fats in your diet.  Your workout should be just fasted cardio first thing in the am.  That means as soon as you awake do some form of aerobics like walking, jogging or biking on an empty stomach.

  1. On the day of your party:

Ok now on the day of the party you’re going to stick to more of a fasted diet. Just water and a few protein shakes, keeping your calories very low.  On this day you want to focus on getting in a strength-training workout early in the day.  This way you really deplete your sugar storage facility in your body so that at night all the goodies and carbs will replenish your muscles before storing as fat.

  1. The day after:

You should definitely get up and hit that fasted cardio again. Even for just 30 minutes. That will help relieve some of the possible damage.  However if you follow this plan laid out…you SHOULD survive the holidays.
