HOLIDAYS SURVIVAL KIT!!!!!
About 2 weeks ago we had Eid (Muslim holy festival after Ramadan). Government announced 4 days of holiday for the occasion. Every one was joyous and happy for dressing up meeting with relatives expecting gifts and what not, I was feeling the same way but had this concern which was not letting me get sync with the holiday spirit, and that was how the hell am I going to avoid all the juicy fatty meals through out the holiday. Started googling for tips found some which I followed to the best of my strengths. Find these tips below:
Here are Holiday Season Survival Tips
Don’t skip your workouts.
No time for an hour workout? Try 20 minutes at a higher intensity. Or 20 minutes period.
Can’t even find 20 minutes? Take the stairs, stand while at work, ride your bike to work, do squats while talking on the phone, park further away, etc. The little things add up.
Can’t even do those? Stop Right There. Now you’re just in total excuse mode, and excuses definitely don’t yield success:)
Eat home-cooked meals as often as possible, since you’re likely to attend a lot of holiday parties for many other meals.
Don’t go to a holiday party hungry. Ever!
Watch what you drink at holiday parties. Not only do carbonated beverage calories add up, but they also cause impulse eating and overeating.
Drink a lot of water to keep well hydrated.
Sleep. Don’t get so overbooked that the night routine suffers.
Stay inspired. I use this Pinterest board to stay inspired daily. I’m always adding to it to keep the motivation and momentum.
These survival tips are not rocket science. They are merely meant to be reminders - for myself as well and worked pretty good for me during Eid holidays!
The bottom line is that the healthier we stay, the happier we are all season long.

Here is a list of super tasty foods that will wake up your metabolism and help you flush fat out of your system.

1) Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits like, oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, and limes contain high concentrations of Vitamin C (this is also called ascorbic acid). This Vitamin C has a fat burning quality.

Vitamin C reduces the effectiveness of fat. It reduces its content and can liquefy or dilute fat. By diluting the fat, it makes it less effective, and easier to flush out of your system. Vitamin C also works on cholesterol deposits. Vitamin C can help burn out the cholesterol, hence, making it difficult for cholesterol deposits to form in blood vessels.

By adding Citrus Fruits to your daily diet, try every meal and also a snack, you will great increase your metabolism, increase your ability to get rid of fat, and also help you to control your cholesterol levels.

2) Soy beans

Soy beans contain lecithin, this chemical will shield your cells from accumulating fat. This chemical prevents, like a shield, fat from forming on your cells. It will also break down fatty deposits in your body.

Eat soy beans at least 3 times a week and you’ll be boosting your bodies ability to get rid of fat. You can find soy beans in most health food stores.

3) Apples, Berries, Fresh Fruit

Apples contain a chemical call pectin. This chemical is found in most berries, and fresh fruit. The pectin is in the cell walls of most fruits, especially apples.

Pectin limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb. This will put a natural limitation on the amount of fat your cells can absorb. Pectin, once in your system, has a water binding property, it absorbs watery substances, and these watery substances in turn bombards the cells and makes it release fat deposits.

Add apple sauce (it’s loaded with pectin), apples, fresh fruit and berries, to your diet and let the power of pectin pulverize the fat that accumulates on your cells. An apple a day can help keep the fat away.
