It’s that amazing time of the year when we eat and stuff our faces. We eat for the sake of eating rather than for pure enjoyment.
The turkey is turned into turkey pie, turkey sandwiches, turkey curry and turkey soup and the list goes on.
Then we fall into a deep slumber on the settee.
But do we give a second thought to the damage the extra calories will do to our bodies? We seem to barely care about the extra pounds over Christmas.
Did you know that the UK now surpasses the United States by being at the top of the Obesity Charts? It’s about time we took some positive action to stay in shape over the holidays.
So here are my 12 tips for a healthy festive season: -
1. Cut down on the sugar – stick to fruit, vegetables, nuts and grains.
2. Say “no” to soft drinks. Avoid the fruit juices which can be quite high in hidden sugars.
3. Be aware of alcohol. As well as being dehydrating on the body, it can have a negative effect on the skin.
4. Have fibre rich foods.
5. Reduce the amount of saturated fat. Replace this with low fat dairy.
6. Remove the fat from the meat.
7. You can eat good fats such as olive oil, flax seed oil, fish and nuts.
8. Have good quality protein for example salmon.
9. When cooking, use low fat methods such as grilling.
10. Have smaller meals more often.
11. Be careful of packaged foods even if there is a label on it which says “low fat”. They often contain hidden sugars.
12. Follow these simple tips and you will have an enjoyable Christmas without worrying about the calories.

I am totally gutted.
I just bought a magazine which had an article about fizzy drinks and I’m going to have to give them up!
I knew that they weren’t good if you drank them in excess, but I just hadn’t fully appreciated just how bad they really were for my general health.
I don’t drink them all the time but they are my occasional treat.
What am I going to do and you are probably wondering what I am going on about.
The article gave several reasons why I should not drink fizzy drinks and here are some of the reasons:-
So how do we combat this problem?
Good old water. That’s right! Drink water and lots of it. If you really miss the fizz, then try sparkling mineral water instead.
If you are looking for a healthy nutritional drink, why not try the fantastic Benevita Shake It Range. It can be used as part of a weight management system which can help you to lose weight, put on weight or maintain your weight.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve spent a lot of time running around after my children, working and just trying to deal with my life.
I just got so busy that I start missing a lot of meals. To compensate for this, I started snacking on high caloried foods. As I sat with my children at meal times, I would cheekily eat what was left on their plates. As you can imagine, when this has been repeatedly done over a period of time, the consequences soon catch up with you.
I put on a lot of weight and needed to do something about it as I began to feel lethargic and my clothes began to feel too tight. I could no longer fit into my favourite jeans.
Then Benevita came to my rescue. This is a weight management system which allows you to lose weight, put on weight or just simply to maintain your weight. All of this can be done in a healthy way. I used the system to lose weight.
Benevita consists of 21 meal replacement shakes. You are provided with an option plan which guides you on your journey. I personally used the meal replacement at lunch time as this was when I was at my busiest. In the morning I would have “go” capsules which would energise me at the beginning of the day and have a balanced breakfast. I would then have a delicious chocolate flavoured shake which was filling.
To my amazement it kept me going to my evening meal. About 30 minutes before my evening meal, I would have a “recovery” tablet with a glass of water, which contains lemon balm extract and had the effect of relaxing the body. This was done Monday to Friday.
You are allowed a break on Saturday and Sunday but it helps that you continue eating healthily on these days.
As soon as Monday morning arrived, I went back to the plan.
So, why was I so impressed with this system?:-
I would recommend Benevita as a safe and healthy option to lose weight and super impressed with it.
