2. Portion control
As I already mentioned above, try to be sensible about your portion sizes. Fill up your plate with vegetables and enjoy the more calorie dense foods, like starches, fatty foods and dessert in moderation.
3. Try to make healthy choices during the day
Start your day with a healthy breakfast and try to eat as much vegetables and fruits as you can during the day so that you don’t feel the need to overindulge at the Christmas dinner. If you start your day with chocolate, chances are you will be making poor choices for the rest of the day.
4. Stay active
Try to go to the gym in the morning and get in an intense weight training session or HIIT circuit to boost your metabolism and to make some room for the extra calories you will be having. If you can’t make it to the gym you can do a quick, home workout circuit or go for a power walk or jog first thing in the morning.
Here is a quick home workout for you to try:
Complete 4 rounds of this circuit with no rest between exercises and as little rest as possible between rounds.
