There is no reason to feel like you cannot enjoy sugar over the festive period as there will be plenty desserts, glasses of wine and sweets tempting you…But there is a way to eat sugar in moderation and by being aware of what you are consuming.

  • EAT WHEN YOU’RE HUNGRY, STOP WHEN YOU’RE FULL

Sometimes it feels like you are eating for the sake of eating at Christmas. Listen to your body and don’t overeat.

  • SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAVING 2 AND HAVING 17 COOKIES

Enjoy a couple of treats here and there but don’t feel like you’ve ‘ruined your diet’ so you may as well continue to graze.

  • BE AWARE OF SERVING SIZES AND HOW YOU SERVE THEM

Try eating your food on a smaller plate and remember that you can always go back for seconds so start with smaller portions.

  • BE AWARE OF BOREDOM SNACKING

Try to serve up your snacks and eat them mindfully. If you grab things on the go you may not realise how much you are consuming.

  • BE AWARE OF YOUR STRESS LEVELS AND EMOTIONAL EATING

Even though Christmas is a time for relaxation, sometimes it can be a little stressful. Don’t use this as a reason to gorge on sugar!

  • MAKE HEALTHIER ALTERNATIVES

There are SO many ways to make healthy alternatives this Christmas. Swap refined sugar for honey or coconut sugar in your desserts.. make crumble out of oats.. jam pack the Christmas dinner table with lots of different vegetables.

  • DON’T HAVE COOKIES FOR DINNER

Make sure you eat your 3 nutritious meals a day, this way you won’t be so inclined to reach for the selection box.

  • IF YOU DO GO OVERBOARD, DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP

It is Christmas after all! Your focus should be on family, friends and memories!
