Last Sunday afternoon I had my first Christmas dinner of the season. And now there are only THREE more to go. I’m looking forward to each and every one of them because I’ll survive them all – and stay lean – with these 3 rules.

Rule #1 – Use Christmas Dinner as a cheat meal.

Of course, if have 3 or 4 big dinners planned, that doesn’t solve the problem. So we need more solutions.

Rule #2 – Pick your pleasure

If your 2nd big dinner doesn’t fall on a cheat day, then you need to prioritize your preference for tasty pleasures.

At the meal, you get to choose just ONE of the treats. It could be…

– Grandma’s famous pecan pie
– extra potatoes with gravy
– a chocolate dessert
– a glass of Uncle Kenny’s hard-core eggnog
– etc.

But only ONE of the above. Pick your pleasure and enjoy it guilt-free.

Rule #3 – Be perfect the rest of the day.

From breakfast to lunch, and even with your snacks, focus on protein, fiber, fruits, and vegetables. Then enjoy your big dinner. It’s simple.

And for a proven perfect fat loss diet, use this nutrition program to plan all of your other meals to lose fat over Christmas.
