How can we enjoy ourselves without bingeing, striking that balance.


  • Stick to portions

Remembering

1/4 Plate Protein,

1/4 Plate Complex Carbohydrate's,

1/2 Plate Vegetables

and 1-2 tbsp. Healthy Fats.

Watching your Calorie intake i.e. track, weigh and measure.


  • Remain Active

Once that Turkey is in the oven head out for a Christmas stroll, I know the roaring open fire or the heating is much cosier and inviting, but a walk in the brisk winter chill is invigorating and great for your mindset.


  • Meal Preparation

I start preparing Christmas Eve and as I am, I add the recipes into my app so prepared on Christmas Day, to track what I consume. When laying the dining table I will place the scales next to me 'I need accountability, I need control'. How about you....


  • Snacks

Plan for picking have snacks lined up, pre weighed nuts, Vegetables sticks with protein dips i.e. hummus, peanut butter, or earlier in the week pre make protein balls.


  • Watch your alcohol intake
