Avoid Fat Accumulation Last Week of 2013

See also

The last week of 2013 is most likely going to tempt you with more fat storing foods than any other week of the year. As you should know by now, certain foods promote the accumulation of body fat more than others. Enjoy your holiday season with friends and family, but stay mindful of how you eat so that you don't bring in 2014 with more body fat than you had in 2013. Here are some tips to help minimize the chance of storing fat this week:

  • As much as possible, eliminate simple sugars. Simple sugars cause insulin spikes and since the immediate increase of blood sugar cannot be burned as fast as it accumulates, insulin is likely to store this excess "blood sugar" as body fat. Don't be deceived, if you are eating lots of sugar, you are probably going to store some body fat.
  • Try to fill up on meats and complex carbohydrates like potatoes, rice, beans, etc. If you are full from eating these type of foods, you are less likely to eat the sugary foods that almost certainly will cause fat storage.
  • If you eat a ton of complex carbohydrates, try to get in a workout after your food settles and don't be shy about the workout. Hit the workout hard, get your heart rate up and sweat! Missing your workouts will only add to body fat accumulation (since you are most likely taking in more food than you normally would).
  • Don't eat a massive meal late at night. In particular, avoid sweets and a lot of carbohydrates late at night. You will regret the fat gains later.

Think out your meal plans in advance, know what you will and won't do and stay determined. Most of all, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May 2014 bring you the body you have always wanted. For information on training and eating to achieve your physique goals, email mikephelpsmail@gmail.com or visit www.mikephelpstraining.com.
