According to the British Dietetic Association, the average Brit will have consumed 6,000 calories on Christmas Day and will gain 5 lbs (2 kg) by New Year’s Day (I know this is a British statistic, but I’m sure this is applicable to Australians too). Hopefully, this little fact alone will make you think twice before you help yourself to a second serve of Christmas pudding!
Seriously though, there are positive steps you can take to avoid excess kilograms over the Festive Season break. I mean, let’s face it, you don’t want to be the one at your Christmas party nibbling on carrot sticks while everyone else is enjoying all that is on offer, however, you can be sensible and feel great by the time 2013 comes around.
Firstly, make sure you stick with your exercise routine (or finally start one) – just because it’s Christmas it doesn’t mean your visits to the gym need to stop! You should also be thinking of ways to move more during the day: as most of us are on holidays, now is an ideal time to encourage the whole family to have a walk in the evenings after dinner or ride bicycles in the park together. There is nothing better than combining exercise with quality family time at Christmas.
Make sure at Christmas parties (and on the big day), you don’t deprive yourself. You need to evaluate the food on offer & make conscious choices before filling your plate. But if that Christmas pudding is too hard to resist, don’t deny yourself! Have a small serve and savour every mouthful – after all, Christmas pudding only comes but once a year…but just don’t go overboard.
