Every XMAS season people put on weight and then come January people want to lose the weight. So here’s how to not put on weight this XMAS season and still enjoy the parties.
Every XMAS season you will get invited to parties. In Australia it is summer and there is bound to be very warm days. Most people get dehydrated by this stage.
Here are some tips to help you survive the silly season
Have potluck parties
Potluck parties means that everyone brings something to the table whether it would be chips or something healthy. I would chose the latter.
Eat something before you go out
Outside food has a lot more calories and is not as nutritious as homecooked food. It can be a small snack. Hopefully if you have been using myfitnesspal all year you would know how many calories are in each food
Don’t forget your exercise goals.
Make sure that you do your regular exercise each day no matter what. Even better still, why not involve the whole family? It can be as simple as a walk or backyard cricket, runs or if you have a pool why not a swim.
Nothing worse than turning up to a party drunk. It is recommended that for every 25 kg you weigh you drink 1L of water. And if it is a really warm day you drink another 1L of water.
Don’t overdo the alcohol
I know alcohol is nice but if you overdo it you can end up drunk and maybe having to go to the hospital. Drunk people are known to be aggressive.
In short: know your limits
And yes alcohol has calories in each drink!
