weight_lossThe countdown is well and truly on! In case you’ve been living under a rock, C-day (Christmas day) is in less than 7 days time!
If you haven’t already, there’s a good chance that the next week will see you run off your feet, not to mention eating here, there and everywhere as last minute Chrissie parties and catch ups reach fever pitch.
As is the way the rest of the year, when it comes to healthy, sustained weight loss, moderation is key. Depriving yourself of all the goodies on offer at this time of year will inevitably lead to bitter feelings and perhaps even lead to a ‘sod it’ binge later in proceedings, so treating yourself to a little bit of what you really fancy can be the best way to keep cravings (and calories) in check.
Balancing the not-so-good with your usual healthy diet is another great way to keep things from blowing completely out of proportion. Don’t fall prey to the old; ‘well i’ve already indulged this morning so I may as well keep the good times rolling,’ trick that your mind often tries to play on you.
Try to mix and match your usual meals with festive favourites for your best chance of keeping your waist line happy and healthy.
Choosing what to enjoy this festive season can be the hardest part! With tables literally groaning under the weight of all the seasonal treats on offer, deciding on your faves is no easy task.
We’ve compiled a rundown of the calorie count of the most popular Chrissie treats to help you keep an eye on your kilojoules (and work out where you want to splurge!)
Merry Christmas!
