Everyone who is regularly active or plays a sport often knows how important it is to keep your body in good shape. And, everyone knows that in order to stay in good shape and be at your healthiest point, you must do your best to eat as clean as possible. During the holiday season, with Halloween at the start, it can get a bit tougher to stay on track with clean eating, as there are constant festivities. But, if you indulge in too many sweets, it will greatly affect your progress physically, especially on the course. So, how can you enjoy Halloween while still staying as fit as possible? Here are a few tips:
Hide your Halloween candy. The first tip is simple: once you purchase all of the candy for the trick-or-treaters, hide it. Make sure that it is completely out of sight, especially if you are one who has a late-night sweet tooth. This way, the candy will not even be opened until it is time to give it away.
Stock up on healthy food. Fill your cabinets and fridge with healthy food. Just because it is healthy does not mean it has to be boring – but ensure that you are stocked up with all of the healthy nutrients that will keep you full throughout the day.
Drink a lot of water. The more water you drink and more hydrated you are, the less you will feel cravings for sweet treats such as Halloween candy. Make an effort to drink the proper amount of water from the moment you wake up until you end your day.
Eat meals before festivities. Before Halloween parties, make yourself a big, healthy meal that you can eat before you go. This way, once you arrive to the party, you will not be starving and will be less likely to fall off track.
It is important to note that being fit and eating clean does not mean that you must deprive yourself of all of the delicious treats that everyone knows and loves! Stay active, stay hydrated and simply watch your portions. Next time you are out on the course, your body will thank you (and so will your game play!)
