- 2 Glasses of Wine: Keep the wine to 2 and under glasses per day. My client enjoys his wine – nothing wrong with that, however the calories can add up. 2 glasses is moderate, not a massive calorie hit AND it contains polyphenols and other anti-oxidants.
- Protein and veggie meals: Too much variety can be a downfall. However, when there is a good variety of meat, poultry, fish and veggies, it helps keep the food intake healthy - lower calorie and adequately high in protein. Make most of the meals and snacks higher in protein and keep the glycemic carbs to a minimum.
- 10,000 steps: My client was equipped with a pedometer. And while he didn’t quite get the 10,000 step goal, he did do above and beyond what he normally would have. This extra activity will help burn extra calories.
The best part is he did not feel deprived, hungry or like he was missing out on anything. So, the next time your going on a cruise or to an all-inclusive, remember these three simple rules and you just might come home a few pounds lighter.
