You’ve spent all year slogging away to keep off those annoying extra pounds that keep sneaking back on and making you feel fat, then Christmas comes and you chuck it all out of the window in the name of the ‘holiday spirit’. Don’t deny it, we all do it. But this year ask yourself if that extra mince pie or slice of Christmas cake is really worth it? Let’s face it, it probably isn’t.
We get it, no one wants to be the bah humbug at Christmas who refuses the platter of deliciously crispy roast potatoes because grandma insisted on cooking them in goose fat. But you don’t have to be a grinch in order to stay on track.
Like at all times of the year, managing your weight and keeping your figure in shape at Christmas is all about treating yourself, in moderation.
If you don’t want to be in tears trying to do up your work trousers come January and find yourself in line with the masses signing up to the gyms on a ‘new year, new me’ mantra, keep all of your hard work in order this holiday season by remembering just a few easily forgotten things.
