How to Avoid the Thanksgiving Weight Gain

As much as we all love the holidays, we dread the almost inevitable weight gain that comes from Thanksgiving. Here’s what to eat on Thanksgiving to stay healthy

With the holidays fast approaching, you’re likely looking forward to spending some quality time with the family. Gathering around the table and enjoying a massive feast is a time-honored tradition that warms your heart as much as it warms your belly.

But before you reach for that second helping of sweet potato casserole, there’s something you should know. As it turns out, most people gain between seven and 10 pounds throughout the holiday season, meaning it’s all too easy to reverse healthy progress you’ve made throughout the year.

Don’t worry, you can still enjoy a family feast without overdoing it! Here’s a quick guide on what to eat on Thanksgiving without gaining weight.

Load up on Veggies

If your Thanksgiving meal is anything like ours, it probably features dish upon dish of fresh, delicious roasted vegetables.

Well, we have some good news! You can eat as many delicious veggies as you’d like without any of the guilt as long as your veggies aren’t filled with additives like butter and salt.

From Brussels sprouts to green beans to salad, there are tons of tasty ways to fill up without filling out. And not only are baked or roasted veggies tasty, but they’re great for you, too.

Take sweet potatoes, for instance. A single serving of roasted sweet potatoes nets about 180 calories and is chock full of Vitamins A and C, as well as calcium.

Avoid Turkey Terror

Don’t worry, we’re not about to tell you to skip the turkey. In fact, turkey is one of the best possible things to eat on Thanksgiving.

Turkey is full of protein and Vitamin-B 6. When combined with a plate filled with veggies, you have yourself a healthy meal that tastes great, to boot!

Know What to Avoid

Unfortunately, not all Thanksgiving delicacies are as healthy as turkey or vegetables. As a result, there are a few foods you’ll want to avoid.

It’s easy to go overboard on alcoholic beverages, for instance. Try to stick to one or two drinks, as alcohol is filled with a surprising amount of sugar.

Sadly, gravy, stuffing, and canned cranberry sauce are two of the worst offenders, as well. While turkey isn’t quite the same without them, both are loaded with sugars and fat and are ultimately empty calories.

Dessert can be dangerous for those attempting to reduce the appearance of cellulite, too. Have fun and enjoy your pie, but try and take a smaller piece.

Post-Meal Tips

Though most Thanksgiving fare is loaded with tryptophan, a chemical that causes tiredness and fatigue, you’re encouraged to avoid a post-meal nap.

Instead, take a walk around the block with a family member. Moving after a meal is a great way to boost your metabolism and work off any extra calories you ingested.

Cellulite Causes, Treatment, and Prevention Explained!

Do you notice dimpled areas on your skin? They’re usually found around your thighs and buttocks. This is called cellulite, or more specifically, edematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy.

There are many myths about cellulite. Cellulite is a combination of fat cells, fluid retention and connective tissue. The dimpled area is caused when fat deposits push its way through, affecting the connective tissue.

Although cellulite can seem unfortunate, cellulite is perfectly normal. Certain factors such as genes and skin thickness can cause cellulite, even in those who are a healthy weight.

But there ARE ways to treat cellulite. Here’s your guide and how to treat cellulite.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is fat deposits pushing through the connective tissue. This makes the fat cells visible on the skin’s surface, resulting in uneven skin texture. But the exact cause of this process is unknown.

The biggest factors are weight, hormones, lifestyle, and genetics.

Cellulite Signs and Symptoms

Cellulite is characterized by skin dimpling or a lumpy skin appearance. Cellulite is most commonly seen around the thighs or buttocks. But some people may get cellulite on the hips, chest, arms, and the belly.

Mild cellulite isn’t always visible, whereas severe cellulite can be visible regardless of the position you’re in. Some people get skin dimpling while sitting down and the dimpling disappears while standing or lying down.

Is Cellulite Dangerous?

In short, no — cellulite is not dangerous. In some cases, cellulite is caused by excess fat in individuals. But cellulite can also be a genetic issue; you can form cellulite even when you’re not overweight.

About 80-90% of women have cellulite. Cellulite is also more common in women than in men. This is because the fat cells and connective tissue are arranged vertically, giving that “orange peel” appearance.

But cellulite is treatable. Most doctors see cellulite as a cosmetic issue and not a serious health concern.

How to Treat Cellulite

There are different ways to treat and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Here are a few effective methods:

Endermologie(R)

endermologie (R) is by far one of the most effective noninvasive ways to treat cellulite. It massages, rolls, and manipulates your tissues with a handheld massaging device which many report as relaxing, and takes less than an hour.

endermologie (R) is also one of the only cellulite treatments cleared by the FDA.

Patients are required to have between six and ten treatments to truly see results. Each session is around 30 minutes and the process will only take a few months. The process is also reported as safe, effective and completely pain-free.

Diet and Exercise

If cellulite forms because of an unhealthy lifestyle, switching up your health routine could reduce the appearance of cellulite. Avoid fat-forming food such as carbohydrates, sugar, and processed food. It is also recommended to exercise at least an hour 3-4 times a week.

Time to Kiss Your Cellulite Goodbye

Cellulite forms when fat cells break through the connective tissue, making them visible on the skin’s surface. Even though cellulite is harmless, some patients are insecure about their cellulite.

The good news is there’s a way to get smoother skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Your best option is going under endermologie (R) treatment.

Top Celebrities Share Their Body Image Experiences

During the days when movie studios controlled every aspect of an actress’s life, celebrities rarely, if ever, spoke candidly about their lifestyles, diets, or exercise and beauty regimens beyond what was approved (and usually filmed) by the studio. Any type of plastic surgery or even non-invasive treatments beyond the occasional product or business endorsement were not only well-hidden, but forbidden to discuss. Even pregnancies were rarely mentioned until after the fact. Continue reading
