Merry Christmas!!!




Hope you all have a very enjoyable holiday and remember that the average person consumes 6,000-plus calories and 360g fat on Christmas Day; it would take roughly 780 minutes of running to burn off those calories So, knowing that Carnival is RIGHT around the corner here are some tips I compiled from various websites to keep the calories in check while we celebrate:

  • Have an alcoholic drink but try to drink plenty of water, too. It will help you stay sober longer and will greatly reduce the likelihood of a hangover!Two glasses of Baileys equals to around 250 calories), if you want to indulge, stick to low-calorie drinks like wine (87 calories per glass) or Champagne (89 calories per glass). Creamy, sweet liqueurs are packed with calories and fat.
  • Ignore the high-fat nibbles at parties. We can easily consume 500 calories without feeling we have eaten anything – so they are just not worth it.
  • Just say no sometimes when the chocolates and sweets are being handed around. Remember, it takes 20 seconds to eat a single chocolate but 20 minutes of exercise to burn it off!
  • Try sending your guests away with a doggy bag if you have too much food left after your party. You really don’t want it hanging around in your fridge!
  • Forgo the skin and chose white over dark meat.
  • Compensate for those extra calories. Go ahead and indulge an enormous meal in the afternoon but balance that with a light evening meal and a light lunch the next day.
