What happens at christmas
Christmas is the time of love, generosity, gifts and - sumptuous food! Christmas geese, dominoes, cinnamon sticks, chocolate Santa Clauses, chocolate biscuits, vanilla biscuits and many other sweet treats are enticing. Since you don't want to offend the hosts, a festive meal usually means more is eaten than is sensible.
How can you resist the Christmas delights?
You don't need that! The magic word is: hold true. You can of course take part in a festive dinner or eat some cookies, dominoes or Santa Claus. It is important that you eat these foods in moderation and do not eat more than usual during the festive dinner. It helps a lot to drink a glass of water before the big feast. Then the stomach is already a little full, and the fat, high-energy dishes don't fit as much into the stomach. With cookies, dominoes etc. you should limit the amount to 30-50 g per day. Nobody tells you that the pack of dominoes has to be eaten in one day. In addition, the sweet treat will become something special that you can treat yourself to.
Movement is the be-all and end-all
Keep moving even on Christmas holidays! After the sumptuous Christmas dinner, you can go for a walk in a park or in the forest with the entire Christmas party. The food digests faster and you do not run the risk of gaining too much.
I struck too much when eating, what can I do?
No problem, the banquet tastes of course much better in society and so you often more. The following days after the festivities, however, you should eat light, nutrient-rich and low-energy dishes, such as salads (e.g. lamb's lettuce), light Chinese dishes, Thai dishes, other rice dishes with vegetables, a vegetable soup. The vegetables also stimulate digestion and can normalize everything in the body that got out of hand during the festive season with regard to food.
With all my heart I wish you a merry and peaceful Christmas and a happy new year 2019!
