Its an exciting time of year with parties, drinking, and stuffing your face with all your favourites - Christmas ham, pudding & cakes. However you don't have to forget your healthy habits because of the holidays. But you don't have to miss out on all the favourites either.
The most common issues with unhealthy behaviours during the silly season are over consumption of alcohol, over consumption of food and poor food choices. With moderation, setting boundries and a bit of planning you can still enjoy Christmas & keep those healthy gains you've worked so hard for this year.
Our top tips for staying on track
1. Keep to your routine
2. Watch your alcohol intake
3. Don't deprive yourself
.Remember to enjoy all the great food on offer at this time of year. Depriving yourself of the festivities will hurt your motivation and will likely lead to binge eating later. Set yourself limits - one plate of food rather than seconds, one desert instead of two or three. Take your time when you eat & enjoy the food rather than rushing through it
4. Have your big meal during the day
5. Don't forget your veggies
With all the yummy food on offer its easy to look past your greens but as with the rest of the year its important to still eat your veggies & salad. They'll help keep you full and fibre to the diet and ensure you're still getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals to keep healthy.
