EAT. DRINK. STAY FIT
Re-think Holiday Fitness
The holidays, as fun as they are, can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Gift giving, parties, family, and copious amounts of guilty-pleasure foods can wreak havoc on your fitness goals. If you think this fitness trainer is going to say “moderation, eat healthy alternatives, stay away from excess alcohol”, I’m not. I will say this – eat, drink, be merry, enjoy life and try some of these easy tips to help mitigate the holiday stress and pounds.
MANAGE YOUR STRESSORS
Added stressors are as abundant as food and drink during the holidays and cortisol, the stress hormone, will cause the body to pack extra fat. Take 10-15 minutes to simply go for a walk (if not more), as walking has been shown to reduce cortisol and increase brain activity.
FOOD & EXERCISE AREN’T A REWARD OR PUNISHMENT
I can’t stand the words “exercise” and “workout” as they sound obligatory or punishing. I prefer using more positive words like training or practice. While you might think that high-intensity HIIT training or a sweat session will mitigate whatever it is you just ate, it doesn’t work like that. One does not cancel out the other, and that’s fine because adding highly stressful “workouts” to try to balance a carb-heavy meal and alcohol only compounds stress.
Instead, focus more on weightlifting and shorter, more explosive intervals (10 seconds of work, 50 seconds of rest) rather than metabolic workouts. The quality of calories burnt is more important than quantity. Shorter workouts are also easier to fit into busy days and lifting weights can actually help take advantage of the elevated cortisol levels.
Lastly, your body treats alcohol as a sugar, therefore, it will be broken down and prioritized as such. Indulging in a carb-heavy meal and higher alcohol consumption will cause your body to metabolize the alcohol first and then store the extra carbohydrates as glycogen (body fat). When you know you’ll be having more drinks than normal, stay away from excess sugars and heavy carbs (breads, pastas, etc.) and opt for higher protein meals with lots of vegetables. Despite the common misbelief, starch-heavy carbs don’t “soak up the alcohol.”
