- Avoid high calorie drinks like cider, beer, cocktails when on nights out, try and choose spirits with low calorie mixers like slimline tonic/soda water or diet drinks.
- Try and keep drinking alcohol to a minimum of 1/2 nights over the Christmas period if possible.
- Snacking on foods like tins of chocolates, crisps , nuts etc is generally what does the most damage over Christmas, if you find it difficult to stay away from these things then maybe avoid having them in the house.
- Pick 2 days over the Christmas to enjoy all the lovely food you look forward to but then draw a line under it and get back to a healthy diet. Most people will binge for a week or two over the Christmas period and this can do a lot of damage and in the end make you feel very sluggish and unmotivated, try to avoid doing this.
- Try and get in some daily exercise over the festive season, especially if you are off work and have the time. Even if its a quick body weight circuit at home or a long walk with the family, you will feel so much better for it.
- January is always the time for people to start drastic diets and its generally down to a total binge on food and alcohol for most of December. If you do not allow your self to follow this pattern this year you will save yourself so much stress in January. So again enjoy a few days of lovely food and a few festive drinks but do not let it turn into a few weeks.
Have a very happy Christmas
