Anyone have any tips for dieting over Pesach? You know matzah is more fattening than bread.
Don’t fry your potatoes and eggs.
take your exact kisius of matzah at the start of the meal and don’t eat any extra throughout the meal. plus eat lots of fruit to balance it all out.
try to take as many walks or jogs as possible.
Begin each meal with a glass of cold water. Another idea is to have lots of salad on hand so when you need to munch on something, you have a healthy option
I usually gain weight. But last year my wife held her ground (in weight) as she did not eat any desserts.
Matza is low fat, high fiber (especially whole wheat matza). It’s everything else that is a problem.
make yourself a goal in term of what you want to weigh after pesach and set aside a reward if you manage to keep to your goal. or punishment if you don’t make the goal. make sure the goal is realistic. like I will not gain more then 2 lbs. it can even be I wont eat any desserts, or I can have one dessert but then I need to go jogging for an hour.
anyone have any healthy recipes that will keep my diet going over the rest of pesach?
It’s 8 days out of the year. Give yourself a break.
8 days of a break can cause an 8 LB gain.. for someone who’s working really hard I cant afford that gain.
