Six Tips from Curves to Stay on Track during the Holiday Season

Six Tips from Curves to Stay on Track during the Holiday Season

While the holidays can be the most wonderful time of year, with cooler weather, family gatherings and delicious foods, they can also be a minefield for those looking to maintain their weight-loss and fitness goals. Katie Mitchell,director of fitness, and Amanda Turner, registered dietitian (RD), with Curves International, Inc. offer the following tips to help stay on track with food and health goals:

1.) Eat before you go to a party: Never go to a party hungry. Eating a high-fiber or protein-based snack like a turkey rollup and an apple will help fill you up and ensure your blood sugar levels stay consistent – preventing over indulgence in calorie-laden party foods. Simply take 4oz. of turkey slices and 2 tsp. of whole grain mustard, spread the mustard on the turkey, roll and enjoy! Slice up an apple if you are still hungry.Once at the party, make sure to drink a glass of water before you grab a plate.

2013 Weekly Challenge #43: An Apple a Day

2013 Weekly Challenge #43:  An Apple a Day

You know that old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Turns out it might be more true than you thought!

Apples are the perfect snack food. They are crunchy, sweet (but not too sweet) and delicious and also chock full of nutrition. Apples are low on the glycemic index which helps stabilize your blood sugar. They are also high in fiber which is not only good for your digestive system, but also helps you feel satisfied. As an extra bonus, apples don't need to be refrigerated and come in their own "wrapping" making them the epitome of a "grab and go" snack.
