Simple Trick Prevents Holiday Weight Gain
It’s a holiday tradition that’s become all too familiar.
We stuff our faces on Thanksgiving Day… and pay the price the next morning.
Fatigue, bloating, brain fog, heartburn…and the inevitable weight gain… can make you quickly regret your choices from the night before. (No wonder it’s called a food hangover!)
And with Christmas right around the corner, it’s not going to get better anytime soon.
But while I can’t stop you from loading up on eggnog and Christmas cookies over the next few weeks, I can give you a simple tip that can keep you from gaining weight this holiday season (and it might help you LOSE a few pounds as well).
My weight-loss tip is simply this: Spend more time in the sun!
Believe it or not, a study published in the Journal of Pharmacology & Pharmacotherapeutics found that people who spent time in the sun had MUCH lower body mass index (BMI) than people who didn’t.
(BMI factors in both your weight and your height to determine if you’re at a healthy weight.)
Not all sunlight is created equal, though.
In order to take full advantage of the sun’s fat-melting properties, set your alarm get make sure you get plenty of early morning light.
Researchers from the Northwestern School University School of Medicine found almost identical results. Their study showed that being exposed to early morning sunlight was associated with a lower BMI.
The best part? This was the case REGARDLESS of how many calories were consumed… or how much they exercised.
Sounds like the perfect holiday recipe to me!
So what’s the connection between sunlight and weight?
As you know by now, early morning sunlight sends signals to your body and your brain that help set your circadian rhythm—and keeping this clock ticking on schedule is essential for maintaining your weight.
Simply put, if your clock isn’t set properly, it alters the way your body processes food.
So if you’re determined to indulge this holiday season (or if you’re feeling the food hangover effects of ALREADY overindulging), set your alarm, and make sure you’re getting plenty of early morning sun.
Twenty minutes should do the trick.
To a brighter day,
