Happy Holidays

Firstly I would like to apologies for not posting in ages, it’s been a busy few weeks.

Last week I had my monthly weigh in and still on track to my goal but I must be honest not losing as fast as I would like to. I suppose with it getting colder and all the Christmas event is getting a little harder to stick to a healthy diet. During this time of the year we all need to take special care of what we eat, you don’t want to come back from the festive break and be right back where you started. If you’re going to snack try chose the healthier option. I’m going on a wonderful bus tour from London to Paris for Christmas, then Skiing in Switzerland and Germany and to Amsterdam for New Year’s. I want to try keep my diet as healthy as I can and have come us with 5 top tips to help me to get there.

1 – Everyone loves to take snack food on the bus but instead of chips and chocolates washed down with fizzy drinks rather chose nuts and fruit with some sparkling water or herbal teas.

2 – Eating out is usually where the extra calories take you by surprise as you are not actually aware of how the food is prepared, when picking food of the menu try asking for any sauces or dressings separately with will help you control the quantity.

3 – Try avoiding adding sugar to your warm drinks, if it’s very cold you might find yourself drinking a few cups a day and all that sugar really adds up.

4 – New Year’s eve usually comes hand in hand with quite a bit of drinking, if you’re going to drink try stay away for the drinks that are packed with sugars especially your mix drinks. A few vodka cokes could send your diet right out the window.

5 – Keep active! I am in a bus for most of my holiday I need to make sure then when I’m off it I’m doing as much activity as possible, even if it’s a walk after dinner each night.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and I’ll see you all in 2012!!!!

  1. Very nice article, just what I was looking for.

  2. Sam, forgive me if this is a bit off the subject, but… This will make virtually anyone angry: Diets in reality cause you

    to add pounds in the long term and that has become more and more apparent in the unhealthy weight epidemic that\\\\\\\’s negatively effecting this kind of unhealthy food, minimal activity era. Are you aware that stadium seats have

    to be increased in order to help support the rise in peoples expanding, ahem…girth? This suggests that we are now becoming a even larger country (and under no circumstances in a smart way) individuals than all of us have ever have previously which is before two decades alone. Our children suffer from overweight associated

    problems for instance being diabetic and also heart disease.

    I read that during a research project 70 heavy Western children from the age group of six to 19 have been subjected to

    several battery of exams to check out the result that the food intake packed

    with fat had on their young bodies. The outcomes have been eye opening. All suffered from

    high cholesterol levels as well as were included in the high-risk group of getting heart disease and heart failure that a number of individuals ended up already

    revealing indication of.

    Will there be any sort of a cure for everybody? I feel the answer will be sure. Apparently

    pretty much all we need is definitely a little bit of diet and exercise. We pretty much

    all really need to get started with performing

    it Right away!
