It’s exactly 2 weeks today until Christmas 😉
This time of year is full of tasty temptations, nights out, Christmas parties, alcohol consumption, chocolates and desserts, but overdoing it can lead to stubborn weight gain that’s difficult to lose.
Did you know that most people will put on around 7lbs over the Christmas period!!!
Here are 3 quick fire ways to help you stay on track this year:-
1 – Manage your weekly calories, not your daily calories.
If you have a night out or Christmas party arranged a good idea is to slightly reduce your calorie intake over the week leading up to it so your are ‘banking calories’ that you can then use for your night out. This could just be cutting out your snacks or having a slightly smaller portion size for a few days.
2 – Eat before you go out.
Have a good nutritious meal before you go out so that you aren’t going out hungry and will stop you from over eating or picking at the wrong foods.
3 – Be careful with your drinks
If you’re going to be drinking alcohol, be mindful of what you’re drinking. Cocktails are full of sugar and syrup and can have several hundred calories per drink!! Try going for a gin and tonic or clear spirit which will keep calories lower. Also try alternating your drinks with water to stay hydrated.
