Christmas is now only a couple of weeks away and it’s the season of mulled wine, mince pies, chocolates, big meals and party food.
It’s easy to overeat so it’s no wonder that December – and in particular the last 10 days of the year – is when lots of people gain weight.
Being on a Slimpod makes a big difference, of course, but being mindful of all the ways that we’re conditioned to do less and eat more at Christmas is a great start.
So in my video this week I’m talking about three great ways to keep the pounds at bay over Xmas. Click on the image to go to The Slimpod Channel on YouTube:
Be alert for the “what the hell” behaviour that can creep in.
This is when you eat one more mince pie than you know is good for you then say ‘what the hell, I may as well have two more!”
It’s also important to understand that the supermarket marketing experts use every trick in the book to hypnotise you into buying more food and drink this time of year.
So be consciously aware of this and it will be easier for you to resist the temptation to overload your shopping trolley.
Finally, make sure you get your body moving over the holidays. Get up and go for a walk with family or friends!
I’ll be doing a deep dive into keeping in control over Christmas in my Facebook Live tonight Dec 7) at 7.30pm UK time on our main Facebook page, Slimpod For Weight Loss.
