If you plan your nutrition well, you can avoid putting on fat over the holidays.

It’s that time of year again, when parties and holiday treats seem a lot more appealing than your time at the gym.

Your social calendar is jam-packed.

Everywhere you go you’re faced with intriguing sweet goods to try…not to mention the constant temptation to indulge in a little festive tipple or three.

Everyone wants to let loose at this time of year, but there’s no reason why you can’t keep your physique goals in sight while indulging in some holiday revelry.

Work Out First!

Plan ahead by hitting the gym before you go out.

The workout will give you the buzz you need for an energetic night out.

If you’re planning a big evening feast, keep your calories and carbs lower than usual throughout the day so that there’s less damage done that day.

Pick Your Meal Carefully

Choose carefully at the evening meal. Allow yourself small portions of your favourite treats and leaving the rest of the food alone.

Keep your drinks simple too, avoiding sugary mixed drinks and opting for vodka soda with lime, whiskey on the rocks, or small glasses of wine.

Enjoy your holidays, but don’t spoil all the good work you’ve been doing!
