How To Stick To Your Diet During The Holidays

Well the holidays are here and I must say I love some of the holiday foods. I mean listen, those shortbread, dark chocolate cookies from Traders Joes are slamming. That being said, I know the holidays bring a stressful time for many in terms of eating out and gaining weight.

Personally, I’ve never had a issue worrying about gaining fat during the holidays. I’m always trying to increase my muscle growth during that time so a little fat gain is ok so I do enjoy my holiday treats.

Here’s what I never understood though. People (fitness “gurus”) will act like the end is near everytime the holidays come and that leads to more hysteria. Other people promote it and the well intended individual (YOU) ends up getting worried. It’s not that big of a deal.

Seriously, what matters more? What you do between Thanksgiving and New Years or the entire year? Of course the entire year. If you’ve eaten well and got to the gym during the year then the 30 days between Thanksgiving and New Years isn’t going to do anything bad to your body. If anything, you’ve probably been undereating and it’ll help.

So I went on twitter and facebook (follow and friend me) and asked a simple question to the trainers, models, and hard working people that follow me.
