1. At the dinner table, start with green vegetables, followed by meat and whole food carbs such as sweet potatoes.
2. Schedule your strength workout in the morning if your holiday meal is in the afternoon/evening. This will allow your metabolic rate to stay elevated, allowing you to get away with a few more calories.
3. When eating a higher carb/calorie “cheat” meal, plan on following up with about 10-12 low carb meals. Approximately 2+ days of low carb eating.
