Get an ‘A’ in your Christmas diet!

The Christmas Tree went up at home over the weekend so that means that the magical time of seeing family & friends, partying, watching old movings and having arguments over games of Monopoly (please tell me that it’s not just my family!) is fast approaching!

It’s very easy to write off healthy eating over Christmas because it can often feel pointless.

Well I’m here to give you some food for thought (I love a good pun), and hopefully you’ll realise that you CAN eat healthy during Christmas AND enjoy yourself too![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class=”faq-mid-con”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

We want to get an ‘A’ so it’s time to do some math

There are 32 days between December 1st and January 1st (inclusive).

If you eat 3 meals per day that gives you total of 96 meals.

This means that you have 96 chances to eat a healthy meal.

To get an ‘A’ we need a score of 85%.

Hopefully you’re with me so far!

Whilst I would love to sit here and tell you that you should eat a very healthy meal every time, that’s not realistic in everyday life and definitely not realistic over Christmas!

So let’s talk about the unhealthy meals that we know you’re probably going to have:

– The UV Christmas party – 7th of December – 1 meal

– Work Christmas party – 1 meal
– Say 3 more parties – 3 meals

– Christmas Eve – 1 meal
– Christmas Day – 3 meals

– 26th of December – 1 meal

– New Year’s Eve – 1 meal
– New Year’s Day – 1 meal

That’s a lot of celebrating and a total of 12 meals of the 96 which is 12.5% of your total meals.

Let’s look at it another way. This means that you CAN enjoy your Christmas AND eat well for 87.5% of your total meals.

87.5% is an ‘A’! with room to spare – fantastic work, I knew that you could do it!

Will your Christmas meals be a little bit heavier than normal and slow down your progress? probably, but the point is that you’ll still be making progress.

Now you know that you don’t have to write off the entirety of Christmas and go crazy on food.

It also means that you you don’t have to wait until January to start eating healthier, you can start right now![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
