Weight Loss Tips for the 12 Days of Christmas- Tip #11

UniqueU Presents Weight Loss Tips for the 12 Days of Christmas

The holiday season can take a toll on a weight loss program.  To get us back on track, UniqueU offers a twist on the celebrated 12 Days of Christmas.  In actuality, the Christian tradition of the 12 Days of Christmas begins on December 26.  The final day of celebration is on January 6, the Epiphany, when the wise men arrived bearing gifts.  One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is a healthy lifestyle.  UniqueU wants to support you on this journey.  In these days following Christmas, let’s get back on track with these 12 tips.  Even if you aren’t currently in the program, these 12 Tips will have you feeling more energized and in control. 

( UniqueU’s medical weight loss program utilizes a safe, effective formula that gives us the tools to lose weight and keep it off.  It’s not a fad.  The program is medically-based and proven.  We all know that cutting calories and being more active should equal weight loss. The reality is that many of us need help shifting our metabolism and burning excess body fat.  With UniqueU, we lose weight safely – fat loss not muscle – while we are changing habits.) 

Tip 11 – Baby Steps for Creating Healthy Habits – Tempt the Taste Buds

A great step to healthy eating and a cornerstone of losing weight is to minimize the use of high saturated fats and salts.  Waving “so long” to butter, doesn’t mean our food will lack taste.  Try these Tempt the Taste Buds tips to add adventure to our nutrition:

  • Olé for Olive Oil – Olive Oil is a great source of monounsaturated fats, antioxidants and phytonutrients.  Equally important, it is delicious.  Use it to sauté veggies, add flavor to brown rice, in lieu of salad dressing and more.  Sesame oil is also a good option.
  • Spice It Up – Adding even a teaspoon of herbs like basil, cilantro, turmeric, garlic and more add flavor and nutrition to your food without much in the way of calories.  Add it to veggies, meats and whole grains.
  • Sow Some Seeds – Don’t forget the seeds when adding flavor and nutrition to everyday foods like green beans, yogurt, salad, chicken breast – just about anything.  Experiment with seeds to find which you like best, such as sesame, sunflower, fennel, and cumin. 
  • Nature’s Candy – Dried fruit, used sparingly, can be a phenomenal weight loss tool.  It provides a big punch of natural sweetness by eating only a small amount.  Use it to flavor yogurt, oatmeal, or as a snack with some nuts.

No need to have a fancy recipe to use these tasty tips.  Just add a bit to whatever you are cooking, or put some in at the end.  Good for you food can taste good, too!
