How Not To Eat   Lessons From Santa Claus How Not To Eat Lessons From Santa Claus Document Transcript

  • How NOT to Eat – Lessons from Santa Claus The other day, I had an awesome interview with the one and only Santa Claus. The reason for the interview was that I was wanted to know Santa’s fitness secrets that enabled him to rush around the globe in less than 24 hours while lugging around millions of gifts. But even though Santa had some insightful fitness tips, today I want to use him as an example of how NOT to eat. After all, he may be fit but he’s certainly not a healthy weight. He even told me that his diet needed much improvement. So let’s look at some of the reasons why Santa is still overweight despite being physically active. 1. Santa eats late at night If there’s cardinal sin for losing weight, eating late at night may well take the cake (no pun intended). And Santa’s sneaky about too. When everyone’s asleep that’s when discretely makes his way into our home to get his milk and cookies. I mean talk about a sneaky binger. And you add up the millions of homes he’s visiting each year (during just 24 hours) that’s a lot of cookies! No wonder he trains so hard during the remaining 364 days of the year.
  • If you want to lose weight, give yourself several hours to digest your last meal before going to bed. Ideally, this meal should be light and not heavily centered around sweets and carbohydrates, as these will get stored as fat if they are not burned before turning in for the night. 2. Santa may enjoy alcohol a little too much Kids and Santa lovers – rest assured, I’m saying that Santa is an alcoholic, not at all. But he comes from the north and we all know how Scandinavians and people from the north enjoy their drinks. Pardon the stereotype as pretty much all cultures enjoy drinking, but I’m half Danish so I can vouch from first hand experience from many a christmas gathering where the beer and schnapps flow like water. Another indication that Santa may drink too much is that he has a red cheeks and a rosy nose. This could be caused by the cold weather but I suspect that years of drinking alcohol has also taken its toll as well. On the skin, alcohol causes dilation of surface capillaries (tiny blood vessels), resulting in facial flushing and a pinkish-red hue to the cheeks. With chronic use of alcohol, the face and nose will sustain flushing and appear red. Plus, since each ounce of alcohol carries with it 7 calories, frequent alcohol consumption does not help in the battle of the bulge. A single glass of red wine has about 150 calories while a pint of beer has about 300 calories. These numbers can quickly add up, especially over the holiday season when drinking is part of the festivities. 3. Santa needs to eat more fruits and veggies This is only an assumption but I take it that since he lives in a winter wonderland, Santa doesn’t get a regular supply of fresh fruits and vegetables. How could they possibly grow in permafrost anyway? Because he most likely doesn’t eat many of the foods that provide so many antioxidants and other incredible nutrients, he must be filling himself up with something else. Now we all know that it’s recommended to get in between 5-10 servings of fruits and veggies per day for optimal health, yet so few of us do. And even though Santa is a great icon of our culture, we shouldn’t look to him as an example of healthy eating. But that’s not why we love him anyway, right. => CLICK HERE to eat exactly the opposite of Santa!
