Holiday Survival (stress fat)

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

I’ve been studying metabolism for more than two decades – especially how balancing metabolism can help us to lose weight, feel our best, and perform at our highest levels.

Every Holiday Season is full of stress, which can sap our energy and depress our mood. Those holiday celebrations also represent a lot of opportunities for us to indulge – and we often indulge in sweets and treats and all sorts of goodies. What this means for the average person is that the combination of holiday stress and holiday celebration typically results in a weight gain of 10-12lbs in the weeks between Halloween and the New Year.

On New Year’s Day, many of us make the most common of all resolutions – to lose weight. Losing weight is the most common New Year’s resolution because the average person gains those 10-12lbs during the holidays. But, the average person also only loses 5-6 of the 10-12lbs that they gained.  Do that for a few years and pretty soon you find yourself with 10 or 20 or 30 or even more extra pounds that nobody wants.

This Holiday Season, I want you to ask yourself whether or not you want to be “average” – or whether this year you’d like to do something different? If you’re tired of being “average” and gaining those Holiday pounds, then you might be interested in the new Holiday Survival Kit from Metabolic Research Center (MRC).

This amazing kit contains some of my favorite MRC products, including:

  • High-Protein Drinks to help keep appetite in check
  • Corti-Trim to help manage stress, cortisol, and belly fat
  • Metabolic Glucose Formula to help manage blood sugar levels and cravings
  • Fat & Carb Blocker to help reduce digestion and absorption of fat and carbohydrate calories

MRC’s Holiday Survival Kit can help you to strike the proper balance between the stress of the holidays – and the celebrations. Each of these individual products works in a different way with your body to maintain metabolic balance. The result is that you feel great with abundant energy, good mood, focused mind – and yes, successful weight loss.

Starting with Metabolic Research Center now, during the holidays, is a great way to get a jumpstart toward your ultimate weight loss goals. Imagine coming out of the holidays fully motivated and engaged instead of feeling stressed and bloated? MRC’s Holiday Survival Kit can help.
