  • Replace your alcholic drinks with non-alcoholic punch: Just drinking half a bottle of wine can increase your calorie intake by 250 calories. If you must have alcoholic drinks, do keep it to minimum
  • Be active during Christmas: remember sitting in front of the television watching performances each year will not help. Instead go for a walk or a bike ride with your family. This will help prevent you from snacking all time, and prevent post-afternoon slump. On the other hand, if it’s too cold to go out, turn off the TV and play some games. Charades, Twister … pick something fun, active and fun for the whole family.
