Studies have been done comparing different types of oil such as coconut oil compared to soybean oil.

One group of women were given 2 tablespoons of coconut oil a day, and the other group of women were given 2 tablespoons of soybean oil a day.

How to Use Coconut Oil:

Do not add coconut oil to the oils that you already use. You should replace your cooking oils with coconut oil.

Just have 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil a day for best results, more than that can hinder the results.

5 Tips To Avoid Weight Gain/ Belly Fat

1. Snack wisely

During the holiday season, unhealthy snacks like cookies and other goodies tend to be available for you to take as you please.

When treats are easy to access, you’re more likely to snack unnecessarily.

At home, this problem can be solved by keeping treats out of sight. However, that strategy is more difficult to avoid in situations that you cannot control, such as at your workplace or a family party.

Try to be mindful of your snacking habits. If you find yourself munching just because there’s food around — and not because you’re hungry — it’s best to avoid snacking altogether.

However, if you are hungry and need a snack, opt for real foods. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds are filling snacks that don’t contain added sugars or unhealthy fats — both of which can lead to weight gain.

2. Keep meals balanced with protein

Holiday meals are typically rich in carbs but low in protein.

However, it’s important to include some protein with every meal, as it promotes fullness and may be useful for weight maintenance.

In fact, eating protein with meals may automatically reduce calorie intake by reducing hunger and appetite.

Protein is also beneficial for weight control because it increases your metabolism and levels of appetite-reducing hormones.

For these weight-management benefits, you should include at least 1 ounce (25–30 grams) of protein in each meal.

Good sources of protein include meat, poultry, fish, and some plant foods like beans and quinoa.

3. Modify your recipes

High-calorie homemade goods are a primary cause of weight gain during the holidays.

However, you can lower the calorie content of recipes in many ways. Here are a few ideas:

Baking

  • Replace butter with applesauce, mashed banana, or pumpkin puree.
  • Instead of sugar, use a lower-calorie substitute such as stevia, erythritol, or xylitol.
  • Add dried fruit instead of chocolate chips or candies.

Cooking

  • Flavor dishes with herbs and spices instead of butter.
  • Use cooking methods like baking, steaming, or grilling instead of frying.
  • Substitute low-fat or skim milk for heavy cream.
  • Replace cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo with Greek yogurt.

Beverages

  • Flavor your treats with extracts like vanilla, almond, and peppermint instead of butter and sugar.
  • Use club soda or sparkling water in place of sweetened beverages.
  • Flavor drinks with freshly squeezed lemon or lime rather than sugar.
  • Cinnamon can also add flavor to holiday-themed beverages.
  • In dairy-based drinks, use low-fat or skim milk in place of heavy cream.

4. Control your stress levels

Keeping up with the demands of the holidays can be stressful.

Stressed individuals commonly have high levels of cortisol, a hormone that’s released in response to stress. Chronically high cortisol levels may cause weight gain, as they have been linked to greater food intake.

Additionally, a stressful lifestyle may cause more cravings for junk food.

For these reasons, it’s important to keep stress levels under control in general — but especially during the holidays, when you might be busy and surrounded by unhealthy foods.

Plenty of techniques can help you reduce stress. Some options include exercise, meditation, yoga, and deep breathing.

5. Draw the line

During the holiday season, many people have an “I’ll start tomorrow” mentality, which can end up prolonging unhealthy habits.

If you’re serious about controlling your weight, it may be helpful to draw the line, set limits for yourself, and stick to your goals regarding food intake. It’s okay to say no to certain foods and habits that don’t align with your goals.

It’s also important to be aware that you might have a slip-up or two.

People often abandon their goals after this happens. However, it’s best to simply move on and make a healthier choice the next time you eat.
