Plan to enjoy a tasty treat from the reserve.


Kleiner suggests scheduling treat consumption after a high-protein meal, designating a location and time, and storing them securely away from home. This promotes self-gratification and contentment.

walking after eating is ideal.


After your holiday feast, do a quick 10-20 minute physical activity to boost your metabolism. It doesn't have to be intense - a simple walk, jog, or leg exercises like squats will do.
