The smell of Christmas is getting stronger. We all know Christmas is a notorious time to indulge in mouthwatering dishes. Some of us probably getting worried about the number of calories in each dish. Let’s be truthful, you are probably afraid that festivity gives an impact on your health and waistline, don’t you?
But let’s worry no more!
You can keep healthy during Christmas and New Year’s feasts with these curated simple tips. Let’s check them out.
Water. Water. Water.
You probably will raise glasses of wine during the festive events, but remember alcoholic drinks are not your body’s best friend. Hydrate your body with water just like your normal days. Drink it more, if you’re planning to get more wine or cocktails at some events. Why? Because water helps you to lower your appetite for alcoholic drinks after a glass or two. Adequate hydration also holds your willingness of snacking between the main meal of those special events.
You probably will skip your gym day during Christmas and New Year’s holidays. But you don’t have to stay on the couch all long day right? Choose walking or riding a bike while you’re on grocery duty. You can also lend a hand in helping the party host during the event. Standing while cleaning the dishes burnt more calories than just sitting on the couch, right? Don’t forget to spare at least 30 minutes a day to do a simple workout, like walking, before you head out to the party.
Christmas and New Year’s feasts are identical to heavy-stuffing foods. You even can consume more than 3000 calories in one sitting meal. So, make sure to add fruits to your plates. Fruits are rich in fiber, which will make you full for so much longer. Some fruits also contain a high level of water, which helps your body to hydrate your body in a fun way. So, whenever someone offers you a plate of brownies and watermelon, always pick the watermelon first.
