I love Beyonce’ because of her honest admission of loving food. She also knows how to keep herself in shape in spite of being a foodie. Do you want to know how she keeps it together during the holiday season? Check out 5 tips that her celebrity trainer Marco Borges shares on how to stay fit during the holidays.
Popeater contributor, Amber James gives us the inside conversation she got from Marco.
During the holidays, it’s easy to overindulge in all the yummy, home-cooked treats. But before you bite into that extra slice of pie, celebrity trainer Marco Borges hopes you’ll take his healthy tips to heart.
1. Plan ahead! If you know you’re going to an event with lots of decadent food and drinks, don’t go on an empty tank — you’re more likely to make the wrong choices. Instead, snack on healthy protein and fats beforehand (like a handful of nuts), which promote production of hunger-suppressing hormone leptin in the stomach, making you feel full on much less food.
2. Get your workout in early! Between shopping and holiday parties, everyone’s schedule fills up fast. If you get to the gym before the day has a chance to change your plans, you’ll not only ensure you don’t miss your workout, you’ll also start the day off right and perpetuate healthier behavior throughout the day.
3. Don’t diet, live it! If you focus on dieting rather than healthy living, you feel deprived and more than likely, one of those holiday parties will have you calling it quits. Focusing on healthy living instead will give you the strength you need to see past the holidays and into the new year.
