Don't turn into the christmas pudding!

  1. 1. Not becoming a Christmas pudding over the festive season! It’s the time of the year when the gym becomes half empty, booming and retail is exercise takes a backburner for most. It’s officially 3½ weeks left before Christmas and this time of the year, more often or not celebrate and overindulge. Whether it’s the temptation of eating too many party nibbles and mince pies to drinking excessively. But did you know the average adult will gain up to 5Ibs/ 2kg I just 4 weeks! Yes trying to lose weight, this time of the year is somewhat ridiculous but really this time of the year it’s about stability/ maintenance. To put 1 Ib of fat you would need to consume an extra 3500 calories that easy done if you gained on average 500 extra calories per day. The cocktails and the baileys do the real damage so opt for a glass of wine, spritzers or slim/lime tonic. So what can you do to stay on track? 1. Consistency-: If you have a goal you want to achieve, stay consistent with your training and nutritional goals. Don’t get distracted and derailed if you have set yourself targets 2. Limit your alcohol intake-: As I mentioned in my previous article, alcohol inhibits fat loss, disrupts hormone balance and increases calorie intake. 3. Feel free to have a cheat day-: It’s a necessity to have a cheat day, you should be able to enjoy and love your food without the feeling of a guilty conscious 4. Beware of canapés-: Easily in one night, one can consume your daily calorie intake 5. Get some exercise-: Going for a 20 minute walk/ jog, body pump class or gym session will minimize the damage
