How NOT to eat like the Grinch this Christmas!

'Tis the season to be naughty

fala la la la la la la la..!🎶

It's Christmas season, and I am sure you all are super excited.

Festive season = sweets and candies all around = weight gain.

It is impossible to avoid the unwanted weight gain around this time, Christmas happens to everybody, but don't worry, I've got your back!

Remember, it's all about the mindset.

I have always been an eater, one who indulges in large portions too. My friends will vouch for it.

Here are a few simple pointers you can keep in mind to avoid weight gain.

Skip second servings at the buffet.

It can be tempting to help ourselves to second servings at the buffet, because we are spoiled for choice and perhaps we just haven't tried everything, or we used the first helping to narrow down what we like and then went all out in the second helping. That's where we ignore the multiplying calories.

Eat fibre-rich food. 🥕

Choose a dish that has more veggies, fruits, grains. High fibre foods like fruits and vegetables are low in calories. They stay longer in our stomach, keep us full for longer; hence, helps us avoid weight gain.

Opt for lean cuts of meat. Opt for lean cuts of meat and avoid covering your meat with rich and creamy sauce. Try to make low sugar dessert.

Avoid binge eating.

It can be challenging to control the urge to reach out to the oh-so-inviting candies and cookies strewn around the place. Instead, swap the candy jar to a bowl of fresh fruits. In this way, you will eat healthier.

Stay active. 🚴

We know, when we are at family gatherings, it can be challenging to stay active. But guess what? A 15-20 mins walk with your cousins post-dinner can help you digest the food faster and better. Perhaps a carolling stroll?
