12 Weight Loss  Tips To Keep In Mind For A Happy Hormone Holiday


With the holidays here, sticking to your weight loss plan, as well  as managing all the activities without losing your mind, can be challenging at best. The shopping, the crowds, the back-to-back  diet-derailing parties and unavoidable chats with unsavory family members. We understand how easy it is to feel not so merry at this most wonderful time of  the year. So, to help keep you on track and feeling your best, we’ve come up with a few holiday weight loss tips just for you.

"Mind over matter" applies to lifestyle changes, including weight loss.  Shift focus from deprivation to better health, longevity, and enjoying life. Healthy choices are self-care and a precious gift to yourself.

#1 Reset Your Mindset

Relaxation is essential to lowering stress hormones, especially  during this busy time of the year. Incorporate practices like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing into your daily routine. Allocate time to unwind and reconnect with yourself amidst life's busyness.

#2 Lower Stress With  Daily Relaxation

Celebrating with loved ones needn't mean overindulging. Focus on cherishing people and experiences,  not food. Choose positive, supportive company for an emotionally healthy environment to prioritize self-care.

#3 Celebrate People,  Not Food

Prior to your holiday party, drink  3/4 of your daily water needs;  thirst is often mistaken for hunger. Dehydration symptoms can mimic hunger, like a growling stomach and low energy. Also, try drinking water sole, a mixture of a natural salt such as Himalayan Pink Salt and water, to help reduce stress hormones, enhance sleep.

#4 Hydrate

Heading to a holiday event? Bring a cherished healthy dish, or opt for protein, veggies, and healthy fats. Eating before the event can prevent overindulgence. If no healthy options, do your best and be kind to yourself. Avoid arriving ravenous; it may lead to overeating.

#5 Come Prepared

When dining out with family or friends, recommend a restaurant offering healthier choices. If you're trying to cut back on carbs, opt for places with steak, seafood, and chicken rather than just sandwiches. With a little creativity and the waiters help, it is possible to make any restaurant suit your exact needs. Don’t be afraid to speak up and  ask questions.

#6 Choose Suitable Restaurants

Sticking to a healthy eating plan is simpler when avoiding temptations and peer pressure. Opt for foods rich in fats and proteins like bacon-wrapped seafood or spinach and artichoke dip with veggies. If indulging in sweets, opt for dark chocolate or homemade, natural ingredient treats. Remember, the occasional indulgence shouldn't disrupt your journey or  self-esteem; view it as a choice, not a setback, and give yourself some flexibility to realign with your goals.

#7 Prioritize Indulgences

Whether it's the holiday season or any time of the year, consider trying our BeSteady. It's a unique blend of  high-quality vitamins, minerals, and herbs designed to stabilize blood sugar levels and boost fat burning. BeSteady can be beneficial if you're dealing with stress, weight challenges, cravings, sleep problems, mood swings, or hot flashes. It can also aid those on the Becoming Balanced weight loss program facing hunger, fatigue, or weight loss plateaus.

#8 Combat Effects  With BeSteady

Relaxation is vital for hormone health, and a detox bath with Epsom salts offers excellent benefits. Epsom salt contains magnesium and sulfate, easily absorbed through the skin, reducing inflammation, enhancing muscle and nerve function, aiding nutrient absorption, detoxification, and migraine relief.

#9 Take A Detox Bath

Alcohol affects hormones, and not all types are equal. If you choose to have a drink, opt for clear liquors like vodka, gin, or tequila for lower blood sugar impact. Avoid sugary mixers; use seltzer or soda water, adding flavor with lemon, lime, or berries.

#10 Cheer! Drink This  Not That

Amid hectic schedules and stress, women often face sleep issues. Prioritizing sleep is crucial for health, performance, and relationships.  Lack of sleep leads to high cortisol, weight gain, sugar cravings, hormone imbalances, and fatigue. Aim for 8-9 hours nightly, set a sleep schedule, and wind down with a relaxation routine. Turn off electronics an hour before bedtime, enjoy calming activities like reading, journaling, or gratitude reflection, and ensure a restful night.

#11 Get A Good  Night's Sleep

Self-love and acceptance are the best gifts you can give yourself. Prioritize your health and well-being amidst the holiday rush. Make yourself the top priority; it's okay to say no and take care of your needs.

#12 Above All, Love And Care For Yourself!
