Super Bowl, the Academy Awards, and many other award shows.
But when it comes to attending parties to watch a live event on television, often hosted by your friends and family, it’s definitely time to revisit your New Year’s plans for weight management.
The inner athlete in you will want to have a game plan for a successful Super Bowl Sunday.
The inner starlet in you will want to you to shine beyond the performances being honored.
- Event Day Prep: keep your normal workout; keep your daily eating routine
- Warm Up: scope out the available offerings
- Offensive Strategy: Contribute a healthy option (https://www.facebook.com/MMCGirls/); select the healthier options for food and drink; keep to small portions; move away from the buffet to avoid grazing.
- Defensive Strategy: avoid options with no nutritional value; fill your plate as friends and family may be unaware of your goals.
The food and drink are merely accessories to the actual event: the excitement of an exciting football game with clever commercials and an interesting half-time show; and the stunning fashion couture and the recognition of exemplary and innovative artistic performers and creators in the film, theater, and music industries; and most importantly, the camaraderie amongst your friends and family.
The experts at the Metabolic Medical Centers can help you devise personal strategies for your weight management during special events and every day.
