The Twelves Ways Of Christmas
How Not To Overdo It This Festive Season....
The bells are soon to be ringing out, and the snow should be falling, so this in this blog we will give you twelve ways to avoid over doing it this Christmas time.
Try some of the following this yuletide:
Go dark – Before you dive into the chocolate box, aim for the darker end of the spectrum. Calorie intake has been found to decrease by 15%.
Chill – Not on your sofa, though. You need to get out of the house. Your metabolic rate can spike 20% whilst taking a winter stroll before your dinner.
Slow down – Eating more slowly will increase satiety, the feeling of being full, and you’ll enjoy your dinner a whole lot more.
Crackdown – Alcohol contains calories that disrupt your blood sugar levels and increase your appetite. Have fun, but drink a glass of water in-between to crackdown on cravings. Not to mention the hangover.
Beat the buffet – Use the smallest plate possible, and don’t pile your food. An easy way to make sure you don’t overeat.
Attention, please – Dance the night away or chat to friends. Focus your attention on them, rather than the lobster that’s winking at you!
Green light – Eat your greens. They will fill you up and boost your nutrient intake.
Don’t go hungry – Going to a party? Don’t arrive there starving. You can guess the rest.
Playtime – Don’t pretend you’re not jealous of the kid’s pile of presents. Play with the kids and their new favorite toys. Burn some calories, but just don’t throw the Wii controller through the 50-inch plasma.
Red mist – Plan ahead. Know what time you need to put the turkey in or when you want to complete your shopping etc. Avoid the stresses of the season with good forward planning.
Food coma – Your friends might think it’s good to over-indulge. Don’t bow to peer pressure. Look to maintain your weight or within 2-3lb. You’ll be thankful when it comes to January.
Enjoy yourself – We love this time of year and so should you. Relax, enjoy it, but think about your ‘vision’. When January comes, you’ll be glad you didn’t over do it.
New year’s coming. So is the new you. Make sure it is your best year yet.
