Here are our top tips for a healthy festive season
1. Make the best food choices you can
Accept that it will be more difficult than usual. Focusing on maintaining your weight, rather than trying to continue to lose it will help you have a healthy festive season. Don’t feel obliged to eat everything that is on offer at Christmas or at parties. Choose the foods you want most, and be conscious of portion sizes. Forego that extra spoonful, the second mince pie and avoid overloading your plate.
2. Fill up on the good stuff
3. Start the day off right
4. Keep up the activity
5. Keep to a regular meal pattern and never go to a function on an empty stomach
If you’re hosting a Christmas party, have plenty of low-fat snacks on offer for yourself and your guests. Try not to hover near the food, or you’ll be more likely to snack and eat too much. Remember, Christmas is one day, it’s what you do most of the time that really matters. Most importantly, relax and enjoy yourself. Make the most of spending time with your family and friends. That’s the best way to have a happy and healthy festive season.
