Staying healthy is all about keeping our immune system in balance. When the immune system is balanced and working at its peak, we’re less likely to get sick. Making our health a priority through the winter season can help us feel our best through the busiest time of year.
Let me offer some suggestions from my healthy Isagenix lifestyle to avoid unhealthy snacking:
- Have an IsaLean Shake before your heading out.
The last thing we want to be before heading out to work or a meeting is hungry. Tempting treats will become impossible to resist. Instead, let’s be proactive and have an IsaLean Shake® before heading out. With 240 calories and 8 grams of fiber, we can still afford to have a small plate and we won’t feel hungry for seconds.
- Control stressful eating.
Winter can be a stressful time, and for many, can cause compulsive eating. To better manage stress and avoid unhealthy snacking, we can engage in healthy lifestyle practices like meditation, exercise, and quality sleep. Consuming Adaptogens—such as ashwagandha, eleuthero, and shizandra found in Ionix® Supreme—daily can also help mitigate the negative impact stress can have on the body and immune system.
- Stay energized with balanced snacks.
To stay energized and in great spirits, let’s be sure to keep balanced snacks on hand. Foods with adequate amounts of complex carbohydrates and fiber-like Isagenix FiberSnacks!TM will provide us with sustained energy and keep us satisfied. Other balanced snack options include Whey ThinsTM and Nature Oat Bakes™.
- Always have a plan to get back on track.
After a day of indulgence, it’s best to have a plan for how to get back on track rather than letting the habit snowball. Sticking to calorie-controlled Shake Days and intermittent fasting-inspired Cleanse Days is an easy and effective way for staying in line with our health goals between holiday festivities.
Instead of waiting and resolving to commit to a healthy diet and lifestyle for the new year, we can be well on our way with the help of Isagenix in the new year.
The holidays were a time for celebration, family, and fun. Unfortunately, it also lead to overindulgences that often promote weight gain. Let’s commit to set a goal to maintain our weight and to have a healthy start to the new year.
- Water-Water- Water
Let’s do our best with drinking lots of water. Start first thing in the morning. Aim for 8-10 ounces every hour. If you are going out and having a glass of wine or a cocktail, have a glass of water also.
Bright Blessings and much love.
