New Year’s Resolutions: Tackle That Holiday Weight!

The holidays bring a few days of cheer, allowing you time to relax, potentially enjoy some time off, and just have a good time. However, all that holiday fun has one thing you rarely succeed in avoiding, regardless of how much you try: the holiday meals. With so many snacks and foods tempting you, it is understandable that the average American gains about five pounds during the holidays. 

Still, this doesn’t mean that you have to abstain from all the holiday goodies. While you should try to eat as consciously as possible, you don’t have to get depressed if you see a higher number on the scale. In this blog, you will learn a couple of ways to avoid holiday weight gain as well as ways to shed those pounds once it settles on you. 

Can Holiday Weight Gain Be Avoided?

The holiday season is a time when you can reconnect with your loved ones. Some people maintain their same daily routine, only with a few extra vacation days on their hands. On the other hand, others travel home for the holidays. No matter which describes your holiday habits, you will likely visit your relatives, all of whom will expect you to eat the things they cooked for you. This combined with the party buffets can lead to weight gain. 

There are certain ways that you can avoid too much weight gain over the holidays. For instance, by watching your snacking or focusing more on eating vegetables, you can prevent gaining too much weight. Keeping to your regular meal schedule can also help you reach your holiday weight goals, and setting up active social activities can make up for the time you miss at the gym. Should you still gain weight even with the extra care, there are certain ways for you to get your body back in shape. 

Ways to Tackle the Holiday Weight

If you noticed that you gained holiday weight, there are several ways for you to shed those pounds. This can include the following: 

1. CoolSculpting® Elite Body Contouring

If your holiday meals led to some extra fat patches on your body, a good way to get rid of them is the CoolSculpting® Elite procedure. Using a process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® Elite delivers a controlled cooling effect, essentially freezing the fat underneath your skin. 

When the fat cells are frozen, they will die and eventually be eliminated by your lymphatic system. With one session of CoolSculpting® Elite, you should be able to get rid of up to 25 percent of the fat in the target area.

2. Semaglutide Treatment

If you have several years’ worth of holiday weight, body contouring procedures may not be enough for you to make you look slimmer. This is because you need to be close to your ideal weight, so if your BMI is around 30, procedures like CoolSculpting® Elite may not be as effective as others. However, you may be able to benefit from semaglutide treatments

Semaglutide mimics glucagon-like peptide-1 (GPL-1), a hormone responsible for controlling your appetite and cravings. This hormone is found naturally in your body after you eat, informing your brain that you are no longer hungry. This will not only prevent you from overeating but may also reduce food cravings over time. Semaglutide treatments also prevent the food from being digested too fast, which means that you should feel full for a longer period of time. 

3. HiPhenolic Supplement

If your BMI does not make you a good candidate for semaglutide treatments, HiPhelnolic supplements may also prove beneficial. Polyphenols have been shown to have anti-obesity effects, controlling your appetite and improving your satiation. 

Since the supplements are based on natural ingredients, the risks of side effects are low. These supplements can help you control your cravings, and the blend of active ingredients can give your metabolism a boost. With enough exercise and a healthy diet, you should be able to easily reduce holiday weight. 

The Bottom Line

The holidays are never beneficial to people’s physiques, as many gain extra weight, despite their efforts. However, even if you indulge over the holidays, it does not mean that the excess weight has to stick.
