Loving your body on Valentine’s Day:
Valentine’s Day Weight Loss Tips from Quick Weight Loss Centers

On Valentine’s Day, we shower others with attention and gifts to show them how much we love them: our significant other, our best friends, and our children are often the recipients of this outpouring of affection. But on a holiday that, like many holidays, centers itself around food (in this case, in the form of decadent dinners, chocolates, and champagne), we often end up neglecting to express our love and appreciation for one of the most important people in our lives: ourselves!

For many people, losing weight is something they are pursuing in order to take care of themselves: an act of self-care, in order to improve their health, energy, and happiness. On Valentine’s Day, these important goals do not need to be abandoned due to the lure of wine and chocolates. On the contrary, a day celebrating love and affection is the perfect time to focus on taking care of our body, ensuring that our health is preserved, and that we are around to celebrate Valentine’s Day with our loved ones for many years to come.

Valentine's Day Weight Loss TipsThis Valentine’s Day, show yourself and your body some love with these tips from Quick Weight Loss Centers!

Don’t be shy; tell your sweetie what you want.

Give your loved ones gift ideas this year so they won’t have to default to the played-out (and nutritional disaster) box of chocolates. Classic, weight loss friendly Valentine’s Day gift choices include flowers, perfume, and jewelry.

Indulge in chocolate: the right way.

Asking your significant other to skip the box of drug-store chocolates this year doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a chocolate treat! Instead, enjoy a chocolate Q-Snack. With peanut butter, caramel, and toffee protein bars from Quick Weight Loss Centers, you can relish all of your favorite candy flavors on Valentine’s Day, while providing your body with essential nutrients and hunger-satisfying protein.

Treat yourself!

Show your body the love it deserves by treating it well, inside and out. Indulge in a relaxing bath, pamper yourself with a spa treatment, or treat yourself to that new hairstyle you’ve always wanted. When it comes to taking care of yourself, eating right is only one piece of the puzzle; treat your body wholistically with a relaxing self-care routine.

Re-think date night.

Of course, one of the great things about the Quick Weight Loss Centers program is the fact that you can still enjoy many dinner date classics, like chicken or steak, so a romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day is NOT off the table! However, there are many other exciting and special date ideas that do not involve food that you can consider. Taking a sunset walk on the beach, sharing a couple’s massage, enjoying a night of dancing, checking out the latest rom-com, or even just snuggling on the couch are all activities that you can share together without focusing on food.

Cook a romantic dinner at home.

Obviously, even if your special day doesn’t focus around a big meal, you still need to eat. Although eating out is always an option on the Quick Weight Loss plan, a home-cooked meal is extra special because of the effort it involves. Light some candles, play your favorite music, and cook up a special, delicious Quick Weight Loss friendly Valentine’s Day meal for you and your loved ones.

Example romantic Valentine’s dinner:
– Tossed salad with mixed spring greens, baby spinach, and QWLC Honey Mustard Dressing
– Steak or Lobster Tail
– Roasted asparagus or broccoli with garlic and a squeeze of lemon
– Baked sweet potato sprinkled with cinnamon
– Strawberries or cherries dipped in Chocolate or Vanilla Pudding Q-Snack
