    pies, and Roses
  • Eat high fibre foods, such as prunes, to aid
    gastrointestinal transit!
  • Eat less for lunch on days that you know are
    going to involve big evening events but dont
    skip lunch altogether

Avoiding Holiday Weight Gain
  • Enjoy a little of everything rather than too much
    of any one thing. Down size, dont Super Size!
  • Slow down and eat at a more relaxed pace
  • Say no to dessert. Be polite but adamant!
  • Get rid of any edible presents (sweets, biscuits
    etc) to more deserving causes!
  • At the party, if youre drinking alcohol, go
    slowly and drink plenty of water
  • Dancing at the party is a great way to burn

Christmas Cooking Tips
Christmas Cooking Tips
  • Use low-fat milk instead of whole milk when
    cooking bread sauce custard
  • Trim visible fat from around the ham before
    cooking it
  • Use low-fat milk instead of cream or butter for
    mashed potatoes

Christmas Cooking Tips
  • Use either turkey stock or a low fat spread to
    moisten your stuffing mixture
  • Cut potatoes for roasting into large pieces and
    parboil them first. This reduces the surface area
    for oil absorption. Go easy on the oil and use
    extra virgin olive oil for a subtle nutty flavour

Christmas Day Survival!
  • Have bowls of unsalted nuts with dried fruit for
    snacking instead of bottomless tins of
    foil-wrapped sweets
  • Raw veg with dips (hummus, guacamole or salsa)
    are a good alternative to pastry-based canapés
  • Chew your food slowly and thoroughly. Chewing can
    help prevent bloating, wind and indigestion

  • Pile your plate with colourful vegetables
  • Use garlic and/or fresh or dried herbs for added
    flavour instead of salt
  • Remove the skin from chicken and turkey

  • Even a 15-20 minute walk before or after your
    main meal is beneficial. It also helps you to
    feel refreshed and aids digestion
