Just eat and drink moderately and you'll be fine! I t's very difficult to escape the amount of food and alcohol that are on offer over Christmas. From crisps and cakes, puddings and pies, beer and wine, it's easy to graze your way through the festive season, accumulating an extra 500 or more calories every day. Although research shows that the more food that is available, the more we eat, you won't necessarily put on weight if you just overeat for a few days. However, in Ireland, our festive season starts in mid-December and lasts until early January, so there is plenty of time to do lasting damage! When it comes to food, alcohol, and fizzy drinks, portion size and portion control is everything. Not just because of its impact on your waistline but because of the impact of so much fat, sugar, and salt on your health, particularly if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. You don't have to be a party pooper - if you eat before going to a party, you can still pick at some favourites. But you won't overeat because you're starved! Foods to enjoy include vegetable sticks, pretzels, rice crackers, hummus, beetroot, tzatziki, avocado dip, sushi, sandwiches, quiches, fruit salad with yoghurt. Foods to avoid include creamy dips, pies, sausage rolls, crisps, corn chips, chocolates, and cream cakes. On the alcohol front, watch your serving size. Restaurants often serve wine in glasses that are three times the standard size. Equally, watch how many times you top up. It's very easy to lose count of how much you're drinking, so it's best to finish one glass before accepting a top up. And the best tip of all: Alternate your drinks. After each alcoholic drink, drink a glass of water. That way, you will stay hydrated and be able to remember everything you said and did! THE SAVINGS * Eat one mince pie instead of two - save 185 calories * Skip the Christmas pudding and cream after dinner - save 329 calories * Always have a glass of water when you are drinking alcohol - cutting down by one glass of wine (125 ml) will save you around 100 calories * Mashed potato instead of roasties - save 379 calories for three medium roast potatoes * Have a small portion of turkey instead of a large one - save 120 calories * Have a small portion of ham instead of a large one - save 170 calories * Eat two chocolates instead of four - save around 90 calories Source: Source | 15 WIN! golf -night A two Lough Erne 18 in break t.
