Christmas is just around the corner so I came up with the: “Top Ten Tips For A Healthy Christmas” I hope theses tips can really help you and get you even closer to your weight loss goals. As this is my last post of the year ( I will be back next year)
I would also like to wish you all reading this a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Every bit of success with your weight loss goals at the end of this 2014 Weight Loss season, and even more so for the new Weight Loss season ahead in 2015!
Without further ado here are my TOP TIPS!
ONE- Boil your vegetables in a small amount of water until they are al dente ( slightly undercooked). Do not overcook them as you don’t want to be tempted to add any unnecessary sauces on them ( ketchup, mayo etc)
TWO- Have regular meal times, so you don’t feel the hunger pangs. Don’t forget to start the day right with a healthy breakfast!
THREE- Avoid eating food such as crisps, chocolates and sweets, as it has no nutritional value and WILL NOT HELP YOU IN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS GOALS.
FOUR- Go for a really good cut of meat ( if you eat meat that is) and if you are eating Turkey, Goose or Chicken, take off the skin as it’s really high in fat.
FIVE- Pile your plate full of vegetables because it will leave less room for high fat foods such as stuffing and pigs-in-blankets to undo your good work.
SIX- Instead of having Christmas pudding, I suggest you go for a fruit salad mixed up with all the fruits you can think of and get eating. May not be to some peoples liking but after a really heavy meal I think it’s a smart decision.
SEVEN- Stop eating just before your belly pops. As your brain is quite slow to catch up to the fact that you are full, whereas your stomach knows from the get go and of course will let you know in due course who is actually boss.
EIGHT- Mindful eating..watch how much is going onto your plate, and secondly if you are glued to the telly you are not going to be very mindful of what you are eating.
NINE- Go for a 10 to 15 minutes walk an hour after you have had Christmas dinner. If you can slip away earlier then do so.
TEN- Last but not least enjoy the day… ITS CHRISTMASSSSSS 🙂
