The holidays are upon us, and if you’re like my family, Thanksgiving and Christmas usually brings a smorgasbord of sugar and carb-saturated foods that can result in double-digit weight gain.  

Even for people that usually eat well and exercise, the holidays are often their “Achilles’ Heel.” Much of the progress they’ve made throughout the year is completely erased, and they start New Year’s at square one (and sometimes even a deficit).

So what’s the solution?  Well, the solution is actually quite simple.  In a season defined by feasting, if you’re looking to indulge in great food while steering clear of carbs and sugar, the Paleo Diet would probably your best bet.  

For those who’ve been out of the loop, the Paleo Diet tries to mimic the diet of our ancient ancestors by excluding diary, carbs, and processed foods.  What it really means (especially those who enjoying lifting weights) is meat, meat, and more meat! ☺

But of course, there’s more than just meat, and perhaps the great advantage of the Paleo Diet is that there is no starvation or having to eat Styrofoam as part of your diet.  In fact, many Paleo recipes for Thanksgiving might actually blow your family’s traditional feasts out of the water.

Don’t believe me?  Check out BuzzFeed’s “33 Recipes for a Paleo Thanksgiving” (see attached article).  Some of the main courses you can choose from are bacon-wrapped turkey, duck fat roasted turkey, and rosemary and apple turkey.  They also have several different types of stuffing recipes, which includes a caramelized onion and sausage stuffing, a more traditional cornbread stuffing, or you can branch out and try other delicacies such as a bacon, butternut squash soufflé.

But what makes the Paleo Diet leaps and bounds better than other diet plans during the holidays is that you can still have dessert, which might include pumpkin pie, pecan pie tarts, pumpkin bread pudding, or cranberry and almond upside down cakes.

One of the reasons that Paleo has developed such a fierce following (and it’s something that meat lovers should truly consider) is their aversion towards processed meats.  This facet of their diet seems to be gaining more widespread scientific consensus, and the World Health Organization just released a new report that shows a strong correlation between processed meat consumption and increased rates cancer (see the attached BBC article).  

So, you don’t have to give up feasting when it comes to the holidays.  In fact, you don’t even have to give up delicious desserts.  If you’re one of those workout and dieting enthusiasts that’s looking to preserve the gains they’ve made this year instead of having to include them in a New Year’s resolution, embrace the Paleo Diet!
