Okay this is a good one & a complicated one.
1. Should we even worry if we do gain weight at Christmas? What is our goal? We need balance, rest & family time to be healthy. Food is a part of celebration & can be used to express love! This year particularly has shown us the importance of social connection on our health.
2. A lot of weight gained is often more water retention than actual body fat because we often eat more carbohydrates and drink more alcohol etc - after a few days of usual routine that will go.
3. If we don’t restrict too much throughout the year, it’s less likely we will go mad and overeat excessively at Christmas time (or anytime we come away from extreme restriction) so we should practise a more balanced approach year round.
4. What counts is the 50 other weeks in the year, not so much the 2 weeks off we have at Christmas. What we do MOST of the time is what matters most.
5. Practise some healthy habits: stay hydrated, don’t rush when you’re eating - put your knife and fork down between bites, sleep 7-9 hours, go on a walk, enjoy yourself! ☺️
