The Christmas dinner, it’s a meal we wait for all year and we don’t hold back! The average adult is said to consume around 6000 calories over the day!
From the cooked breakfast and stocking treats first thing in the morning, to nibbles and a glass of fizz or a good old fashioned beer. Then onto the main event followed by puddings, cheese and biscuits and lots of after dinner chocolates. Some will find room too for turkey sandwiches just before bed! All this will be washed down with plenty of lovely alcohol. It’s easy to see how the calories quickly stack up.
Check out these simple hacks to help minimise the consequences and the guilt 😉
Follow these simple tips and you’ll save a few calories here and there which will help to reduce the impact of the day. It could take up to 7 hours of intense exercise to burn off the calories from this one indulgent meal. Whilst Christmas dinner is a treat for the whole family, don’t let it derail you from all of your hard work. Try to workout a little over the festive period too as this will also help to keep you on track.
However, above all, if you chose to enjoy your Christmas Day dinner and deal with the consequences later, don’t feel guilty. It’s only once a year. Enjoy it and make sure you get back on track to healthier eating habits sooner rather than later.
