Congratulations you made it to the end of week one. Good for you and your body. The Super Bowl is upon us and the number one thing to talk about is not falling off the band wagon. You did a lot of hard work this week, and even though it is only your first week you still don’t want to sabotage all your work.
The best thing to do when you are eating and drinking
When you eat: Preparing ahead of your Super Bowl eating habits gives you a game plan when it comes to how you will confront eating and drinking situations as they come up. If you go into the situation without a plan your risk failure, just like the two teams involved in the Super Bowl. No plan is a no win situation.
When you are talking, eating and drinking you are bound to overdue the eating or the drinking, and it may take you a moment or to realize what it is you are doing there. Reaching constantly into the bowl or on food table as you are talking, as soon as you become aware, move away from it. Gently steer your conversation elsewhere to anther subject besides food, or ask them to join you in checking out the lovely view, game or the CD’s, kids or step outside.
Stick to the Super Bowl calorie-counter from 30-day challenge day three, nibble here and there but don’t over extend your belt or your waist line. You must eat if it’s going to be a long evening or an event that includes daytime activities and the evening game. Make healthy choices as best you can and eat sparingly if you are going to nibble throughout, a taste here and a taste there. Just don’t keep hammering your hand into your face. Limit your food intake to 100 calories every hour just like you would your drinking if you are drinking alcoholic beverages.
You can also eat two separate meals by making lunch and dinner out of the food by not nibbling throughout the course of the event and saving the room in your stomach for two properly portioned meals, saving room for a few snacks at game time.
The only thing to slow down your drinking is to drink water or sports beverages
Not drinking: Slowing down the drinking will slow down your carbs and your hangover. Filling up on either beverage takes up space in your stomach for food and alcoholic beverage, keeping your from overeating or over drinking. Buy some vitamin water and take it with you, add some ice if you like and pour it into a glass, it will look like a cocktail.
When you drink: When you decide to imbibe you will lose control of your will power and your eating, know that. If you must drink, allow for one to two beverages an hour instead of three or four every hour, to keep the carbs and calories from adding up ridiculously. When you drink you will also need to eat before you drive. (see video)
