If there's one thing you must do on Christmas day it's eat. Blasted excessive calories! It's just the way it is, lots of food....Devour!
If you feel like it walk inbetween meals and keep active if it's possible. Moving will help you burn excessive calories.

One of the less talked about attributes of weightloss is a thing called, "Staggering Calories. This simply means sometimes a good splurge is beneficial because it actually tricks your metabolism into burning more. If you normally eat 400 calories in a sitting and then go to 600 for one meal your metabolism kicks into high gear. For those of you just starting out trying this you can really feel the burn. It's an amazing technique. I'm not recommending anything, but I do this staggering calorie exercise about twice a week.
Bread Crumb Chicken
Chicken - Broccoli - Mashed Potatoes
4 oz Breaded Chicken - (280 cals)
1c Broccoli cooked in chicken stock - (40 cals)
1/2 c Mashed Potatoes - (80 cals)
1/2 tbls Ranch Dressing - (70 cals)
Calorie Total - 470
I actually ate another 1/2 piece of Chicken which brought my total calorie intake to actually about 610. Staggering those calories not only gives you more energy to burn it makes me at least want to go exercise!!

Chicken Soy Speghetti
Chicken - Peach/Water Cress - Speghetti
1/2 c Chopped Chicken (150 cals)
1 c Spaghetti (90 cals)
1/2 c Water Cress/Dill (10 cals)
3 Peach slices (50 cals)
1/2 tbls Parmesan Cheese (70)
Calorie Total - 370
To make the Chicken Speghetti I cooked some speghetti in boiling water. Once the speghetti cooked, I drain it. In a pan I sautéd a quater onion and a clove of garlic in cooking spray. I then added the chopped chicken and the speghetti and mixed it all up and let it cook for a minute. Then I took a table spoon of soy sauce and a 1/2 a tablespoon of Smucker's grape jelly. I added a drizzle of vinegar and whisked it up and poured the soy mix into the skillet with the Chicken Speghetti. I let it cook for about a two minutes. I plated it and sprinkled Parmesan cheese over it.

This is getting into definite negative calorie territory. Be carefully with this because it can possibly cause your metabolism to slow. You do not want to go negative too much.

2: What feelings do I get from eating?
3: How should I eat?
4: Where do fat calories get stored the most in my body?
5: How does eating effect my mood?
If you are feeling like you've fallen off the wagon by eating way too much the answers to these questions, if answered honestly should give you a deep look into why your losing focus. They should reveal how eating effects your overall perception of yourself. Changing your lifestyle so you actually eat less may require constant, motivational inspiration. These questions will help you stay focused. Thinking takes energy, but if you practice using your brain by asking yourself questions there is less likelyhood of you losing your motivation to eat properly.

If you normally take in 2500 cals a day a 20% deficit would equal 500.
2500 X 20% = 500. 500 cpd X 7 days = 3500. 1 lbs a week
With exercise you should be able to burn or reduce about 7000 calories per week. It's important to note losing more than 1-2 lbs per week is not very healthy. When you're losing more then 1-2 lbs/wk your are in danger of losing muscles and you absolutely do not want to lose any muscle.
