It’s December, yay! This is a fun time of year, when all the Christmas festivities really get going, and the end of the year is in sight. It is also the time of the year when people usually pick up a few extra kilograms over the festive season. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. For the next fee days, I’m going to be posting short little tips on ‘do’s and don’ts’ for this Christmas holiday season. Let’s start with the things that you should do, the ‘do’s':
Watch your portion sizes.
Around this time of year, a lot of the foods that are offered at social occasions, are higher in fat and sugar, as everyone is having an extra little Christmas treat. If you can’t resist the mince pies, Christmas cake, Quality Streets and Christmas pudding being offered to you, then at least watch your portions sizes. Eat smaller portions than what you usually would, and then savour every mouth full.
