Christmas Health Countdown

Christmas is a mere five and a half weeks away.

But it’s not just the one day we have to be concerned about when it come sot excess drinking and eating, but a good few weeks leading up to it.

So now is the time to start looking at minimising the damage that the festive period can bring.

1 – Try to eat 5-6 small meals a day. Eating smaller portions spread evenly throughout the day helps rev your metabolism and curb hunger

2 – Include protein at every meal because it has a high thermic effect which means your body burns more calories to digest it. Think meat, fish and eggs.

3 – Don’t forget to drink plenty of water. It helps to keep you hydrated especially when we mistake hydration for hunger.

4. Take regular exercise. No one is telling you to get on a treadmill for hours on end. A walk, a cycle and run around in the park with children all count towards exercising.

5  Alcohol is a major weight loss saboteur.  Try to stick to the odd glass of red if you want an alcoholic drink or a vodka with a low calories mixer. If you can avoid it altogether, even better.
