Lose Weight, Look Great this Festive Season
As the festive season approaches, it’s common to begin fretting to get your weight under control. The temptation to binge on sweets and other food is immense and can result in guilt and anxiety. Going on a crash diet and skipping meals is not the answer.
Home-cooked meals: Most food cooked during the festivities contains excess oil, fat and sugar; all the things that you need to avoid. Avoid eating outside and instead eat at home as far as possible.
Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and prevent dehydration as thirst is sometimes mistakes for hunger and can lead to unnecessary binging.
Consume alcohol in moderation: If you are a social drinker, begin with a small measure and drink a glass of water after that. This will limit your intake and avoid piling up of excess calories.
Choose your food: Even when at party, marriage or some other function, indulge in low fat dips, salads, toppings etc. and eat fruit salad without ice-cream.
Don’t deprive yourself.
