Chanhassen Weight Loss Expert Says Halloween Can Kill Your Diet

Justin Yule, BS, CPT Shares 3 Tips to Prevent a Scary Weight Gain During the Holidays
Oct. 26, 2011 - PRLog -- – Chanhassen weight loss expert, Justin Yule, BS, CPT, has information that every dieter needs to know: Halloween is when the holiday weight gain really starts.  While the month of December is typically blamed for holiday weight gain, Yule warns those wanting to lose weight that, thanks to Halloween, the pounds actually start to get packed on in late October.  “The amount of eats and treats that people consume is alarming,” Yule says.  “One of the main problems is the smaller ‘snack sizes’ that the candy manufacturers have made available.  Eating several ‘mini’ chocolate bars is something people see as ‘ok’ because of their smaller size.  In other words, it becomes a lot easier to convince yourself to indulge in these gut-swelling goodies and then you end up eating even more than before!”

Yule recommends the following three figure-saving tips he has uses with great success with his Chanhassen Boot Camp clients for keeping the pounds off while still allowing for the occasional Halloween treat during pumpkin season:

1- Only buy enough candy so that you expect to run out before the evening is over. It’s crucial to weight loss success to not have “trigger” foods lying around – the temptation is often too great.

2- Allow yourself just one piece of candy in the morning and then one at night. Skip any desserts that you would normally eat after dinner.  Also, be sure to increase your exercise activity by thirty minutes on every day that you eat your two pieces of candy.  This will counteract the increase in calories that you are consuming.

3- Furthermore, if people indulge a bit too much it’s important to forgive themselves and move on.  Dwelling on the past will not help their success.

Yule believes that we must break out of the frustrating emotional eating patterns that sabotage our fat loss efforts during the holidays.  According you Yule, “Our brains are wired to crave the sugar-laden treats that typify the Halloween season.  So, our approach has been to take the exact opposite approach with our Chanhassen Boot Camp members.  Instead of using Halloween as a reason to justify eating a bunch of junk food we spin the seasonal event to spice up our boot camp workouts by using pumpkin exercises.  Halloween thus becomes a fat loss tool for our clients and us.  This approach is key to adopting a healthy lifestyle for long-term success.”

Yule will be hosting the 3rd Annual Freaky Fat Loss Halloween Charity Boot Camp where participants will complete a 30-minute total body pumpkin workout.  The charity workout is designed so both novice and advanced participants can workout together and be challenged at their current fitness level while having fun.  The Freaky Fat Loss Charity Boot Camp will be held on Saturday, October 29th at 9:00 am at Fitness Revolution in Chanhassen at 530 West 79th Street, Suite 120 (next to Golden Tan).  The event is open to the public.  Tickets are $25 with all the proceeds going to A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation.  Participants must bring their own pumpkins.
