Fort Myers, FL, Nov. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For most people, the holiday season is the time of year where most weight gain occurs. High calorie seasonal foods, often loaded with sugar, carbs, starch or fat are readily available. Without a holiday strategy, dieters can derail an entire year of weight loss progress. Nationally recognized medical weight loss program – DietDoc helps thousands of clients each year who are struggling with weight loss to successfully shed fat and keep their weight maintained. The organization’s medical director, Dr. John Howe reveals a key keto diet strategy as the holiday season approaches which will mitigate the impact of the high calorie stretch. After all, having a plan is easier can ensure that dieters can enjoy their holidays, guilt free. 

“Switch to a high fat ketogenic, or keto diet,” says Dr. Howe. “Ketogenic diets signal our bodies to burn stored up fat for energy, rather than carbs.” During Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, eating meats with skin as well as butter or fat is allowed. However, you will need to manage your carbohydrate intake. “Reduce or eliminate desserts and starchy foods like sweet potatoes, yams, or pies and ice cream and replace them with vegetables. This approach allows you to feel full, without having to eat carbs, sugar or starch,” explains Dr. Howe. Try to stick with no more than a net carbohydrate intake between 20-30 grams per day.

In addition to a keto diet, be sure to watch out for how you’re dealing with those leftovers. Try not to take high carb-laden foods such as stuffing, desserts, mac and cheese, and others home with you to munch on over the next few days. If you’re cooking, send most of your carb-laden dishes home with your guests. You can also contact DietDoc to receive a customized diet and prescription plan that will help minimize carb cravings and keep you feeling full without overeating this holiday season.
