Feast Like a Bear and go be awesome!

This is your go-to 2022 holiday eating guide from the leaders of the Eat Like a Bear! community. We are highly strategic in our holiday decisions so that we can both enjoy the holiday season AND launch with fire into the new year.

Join us with this holiday guide.

Yes, we've got some great holiday recipes for you!

We've got some great recipes in here that focus on the portion of many holiday meals where weight loss and weight maintenance goals tend to fall apart: the side dishes.

It's an easy point to ignore, and most of us have years of practice with ignoring the point that we can eat a whole lot of mashed potatoes. As an example, we have a faux mashed potato and potato salad that both help you enjoy the flavors you are used to and that will also make it far less likely for you to end up needing the stretch pants by the end of the day.

We've got you covered with "Ridiculously Big Sides."

A riff on our popular "RBS" framework (which stands for "Ridiculously Big Salad" and "Ridiculously Big Skillet"), we've got you well covered with the side dishes.

Some of these may help you think a bit more about what you're eating the rest of the year.

and with some traditional favorites...

We've got some lower-carb replacements for a few other things as well: Anna Sul's kids insist on both cranberry sauce and stuffing, so she has included the low-carb versions that she's developed over the last ten years. They keep her kids happy, AND they have less of an impact on everyone's insulin levels, an issue that that entire branch of the Sul family agrees they should pay more attention to (and, frankly, most of the rest of us should, as well).

In any case, you'll find those favorites but tweaked to be healthier options for the entire family.

Also –> super-keen eating strategies

People regularly ask what subject my Ph.D. is in.

I am a literal expert in strategy and decision-making.

I am a political scientist with training in social choice theory, a type of analysis of strategic decision-making.

A big part of what I teach in my psychology teaching at Eat Like a Bear! is how we can each manage our own "internal negotiations" – the internal battle we feel when we are faced with the holiday cookie and know that eating it will not help us achieve our long-term goals.

Most of us eat it, and pretty much none of us stop with one holiday cookie. Why?

That's the stuff of the holiday-eating strategy guide.

I teach this concept deeply in our psychology-oriented support community, but I want the entire Eat Like a Bear! community to up our holiday game in 2022. So I am making this guide available to you here.

Key weight loss AND weight maintenance strategies

Holidays are a great time to learn the internal negotiation skills that are going to get you through the rest of your life, trimmer and out living vibrantly.

This is a really good season to up your strategy game.

A common question in the Eat Like a Bear! community is: How do I maintain my weight? One key way is by incorporating strategies like those I outline in this guide.

I used these strategies to get through the 2017 holiday season

I continue to use these strategies to this day, but there is something powerful at staying focused year-round on your long-term goals and living your best. I was a strategic eater through the 2017 holiday season and here is where that strategy got me:

The picture on the left on Thanksgiving Day 2017 isn't even my "before" picture. I was extremely happy with my progress and could have used it as a reason to stop for a while, but I kept my strategy game on point and recreated the photo during Thanksgiving 2018.

What is in the holiday guide?

The Feast Like a Bear 2022 Holiday Recipes and Strategy guide is a 20-page downloadable PDF document with the following content:

Strategy: A 13-page strategy guide that outlines a strategic way of thinking to help you through the holidays. This is an extremely unique portion of the guide and will help you not only with the 2022 holiday season, but with your eating strategies for the rest of your years.

Take a look inside:

Do you need this holiday guide?

You probably already know the answer: You've had everything you ever needed before you found me.

However, this guide will shine light onto your path.

I am 4½ years into maintenance at my lowest adult weight after decades of struggle. I am here against all odds, but it is no accident. I have worked my own strategy game to get here. I can help you work yours too.

All of our digital products come with a seven-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so if you buy it and find it unhelpful, just ask for a refund.

The fact is that this guide is really pretty smart. It is the product of over four years of me working with community members and with myself.

The strategies are all 100% free.

To be clear, I believe that the strategies in this holiday book will improve your mental game. The strategies are free and could well save you a good bit of money in the future.

There are no back-end pitches for something like exogenous ketones (which are expensive and a waste of money, by the way). I don't sell weight loss accelerator products here at Eat Like a Bear. Those are outrageous wastes of money and energy.

Thank you for your support.

Eat Like a Bear! is a member-funded community. We have no brand sponsors. I expect that that is a key reason for our highly unusual success rate. I also put all of our Bear revenue back into our message and our community. (A point that most people are not in a position to do, and I do intend to pay myself at some point in the future but have not yet.)

However, as we grow, we have growing expenses that I could never afford to float myself.

It is information products like this one that help both to increase our success rate in weight loss AND to pay our bills. This holiday guide is a win-win for the community as a whole.

Thank you for investing in the message of the Eat Like a Bear! community. May your funds and this holiday book also set you out on a strategic Bearish path into your most vibrant life.
