Pre-Holiday Challenge: How to Get in and Stay in Form after New Year?

The best “diet” is the one that does not require counting of calories and weights!

The last month of the year is full of various wonderful days: students’ holidays, Christmas balls, St Nicholas Day, Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Unfortunately December is also the month in which most of the people gain the most kilograms. We usually move less and eat more and denser food in winter, and the holidays often contribute to even more abuses.

Almost each day in December is linked with partying, coming out and celebration. Around the Christmas shopping, the ladies but also the gentlemen are engaged with the selection and purchase of suitable dresses for the holiday dinners.

All this fuss almost for sure is linked with desire to show in our full glory and best form which is generally a difficult task on the background of systematic festive overeating.

That’s why, dear friends, in the remaining ten days till the New Year’s I challenge you!

I throw the glove and invoke you to take advantage of the vanity around Christmas and New Year’s holidays to take care of your brilliant form, and instead of a few “extra” kilograms to shine in your best form right in January.

I don’t like at all the word “diet” because I believe that healthy nutrition actually should be a way of living, but sometimes we really have to take more drastic measures which if adequately measured, justified and applied with thought, can be great start or restart for your dreamed silhouette.

Protein shakes are perceived as a quick solution for those who want to be slim and healthy, but don’t have time to prepare healthy food every day. Most of my patients on high-standing jobs, exposed to high stress, owe their perfect figure precisely to similar products.

But what are the benefits of the protein shake, what exactly it contains as ingredients and the most important – how it will help you to lose weight?


One such shake contains a powdered form of the protein, such as soy or whey, which is a byproduct in the production of cheese and other dairy products.

Various superfoods, minerals, amino acids, fibers, flavors are added to these ingredients and when mixed with water or milk they turn into the known and delicious shake. The recommended doses are different, but usually it comes to about 20 grams of protein. The protein intake in combination with regular exercise is a widely accepted way of muscle mass gain.

According to the studies, the protein shakes and generally the higher protein intake at the expense of carbohydrates also inhibits the secretion of the hormone ghrelin, which is responsible for the hunger feeling. Thus appetite is suppressed effectively. Similar studies and trials intensely impose these shakes on the market as a product for the masses, not as it was a few years ago – only for fitness maniacs.

We can find special scientifically developed kits with protein shakes and supplements for healthy and effective weight loss on the Bulgarian market for some time. Along with the shakes you can find probiotic kits, alkalizing supplements and draining teas in the kits – all these are supplements that are essential for a healthy fat reduction.

Such are the products Figuractiv of the German company LR Health & Beauty. I mention them without doubting because I use them for some time in some of my patients and the results are present. Moreover, those who are losing weight feel motivated all the time, and this is very important psychological moment in each “diet”.

The ease of implementation of the program is another important factor. There is one global injustice with which the modern man still does not know how to deal: weight gain is easy and tasty as a double portion of cheesecake with blueberries, and losing weight requires complex calculations, sweating and lots of time.

The weight loss regimens can be horribly complicated, especially if someone should get rid of more kilograms. Exactly this is changed in that dietary concept. The rules here are maximally simplified, there is no counting of calories, weights and cooking as practically suitable ready foods can be found anytime and anywhere.

And of course, when the holidays are over, let’s not forget that the body needs constant care. If you can’t get in shape around Christmas and New Year but your New Year’s resolutions include long-term weight loss, the specially developed program 28 Days Body Mission of LR Health & Beauty is the perfect solution for early January. Besides shakes, soups and bars, you will find additional products in it, which promote fat burning and smartphone app with tips and motivational support.
