That magical holiday and the accompanying feast have come and gone—and if you stayed on track, you are one of the few. The good news is, whether you’ve been working with a nutrition coach or following your own program, you can get back on track and minimize the damage without missing a beat. Here are three awesome ways to get back on track and undo some of that Thanksgiving damage.

1. Check and Restock Your Kitchen

This means get rid of the leftovers. If you didn’t give them away at your dinner, donate them to a local shelter as soon as possible (no, we’re not kidding). Then do a clean sweep of your pantry and refrigerator. Get rid of all the processed foods and simple carbs that you may have stocked up on for your holiday preparations. Then hit the supermarket and reload on healthy, low carb snacks and foods.

2. Work it Out

While it may seem harder than ever to motivate, it’s essential that you jump right back into your fitness routine. Go to the gym,...

Memorial Day weekend is typically a fun one—it kicks off the summer and gives us a chance to celebrate and spend time with our friends and loved ones. While this may mean parties with lots of opportunity to eat and imbibe, it doesn’t mean you have to toss your healthy lifestyle to the wind this weekend. All you need is a plan to stay on track without depriving yourself.

Here are a few nutrition coach-approved strategies that can help you enjoy Memorial Day festivities without packing on the pounds.

Even something as simple as a healthy salad loaded with leafy greens and seasonal produce or a fresh fruit bowl will be a hit. Eat your own healthy dish and then just sample the other offerings.

The Importance of Healthy Snacks

Many individuals who seek assistance from a nutrition coach want to know if snacking is a healthy or unhealthy habit. While snacking mindlessly when you’re not hungry or just because you’re bored is not a good thing, well-timed, healthy snacks can play an essential role in a healthy diet. Healthy snacks help keep your metabolism revved while satiating your hunger. This can help you avoid letting your stomach get to the point where you’re so hungry that you overeat when you do sit down to a meal—a common problem that leads to volatile blood sugar levels, and ultimately, weight gain.

Obviously, junk food and baked goods are not healthy snacks. But when you choose high-protein snacks or fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, snacking can be a healthy habit that helps you maintain a balanced diet.

Here are a few reasons why:

1. Snacks Stave Off Cravings

Most individuals start to feel hunger pangs after three to four hours, which is an appropriate time for having a...

4 Strategies for Keeping Your New Yearโ€™s Resolutions

Losing weight and getting in shape are two of the most popular resolutions people make every year. Whether it’s motivated by holiday weight gain or a “New Year, New You” mentality, these are great choices for improving your overall health. However, studies show that, on average, many Americans lose their stride and give up their resolutions by the third week of January. To avoid this, we’re sharing some strategies from our nutrition coach’s arsenal to help you stay on track with health and wellness goals in 2023.

1. Choose Reasonable Goals That You Can Tailor

Instead of choosing a broad goal like “lose weight” or one that’s too extreme, design smaller action steps that will lead you to your ultimate goal. Your “resolutions” or goals can be small, actionable objectives that you build on over time. Make it about creating new healthy habits over the long term rather than quitting something that will feel extreme and difficult...
