Christmas is often synonymous with excess and this not only can lead to weight gain, cholesterol and others, but also: stomach pain, irregularity in the intestinal transit, feeling of swelling, etc.

As we would love you to end the year feeling good with yourselves, in today’s entry we show you a series of tips to live a healthy Christmas.

 

1. PRACTICE EXERCISE

If it is already important to practice moderate exercise throughout the year, it is even more necessary to do it in this age of excesses. Try to find a niche and even go out for a half-hour walk every day, you can also download our free APP (Android and IOS) and plan all your workouts at home.

2. RESPECT YOUR HOURS OF DREAM

As much as possible try not to stay too late, your body needs to rest, and remember that it is not good to go to bed recently because you need some time to do the digestion. Take it into consideration and more bearing in mind that the dinners of this period are much more copious.

3. MAKE THE FIVE FOODS

In order not to “commit madness” when key meals / dinners arrive, do not skip any of the five intakes. In this way, you will get more satiated.

4. MAKE A BALANCED MENU

Yes, we know, we are also those who “do enough things and in quantity” so that nothing is lacking and no one is left hungry. But we have to have common sense and be realistic with ideal amounts per person.

On the other hand, along the menu we should avoid fatty products and control excess salt and spice (you can substitute or compensate with spices or herbs).

Likewise, in the main dish, it would be advisable to bet on the fish or the white meats and to accompany them of a garnish of vegetables.

5. MODERATE ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION

Obviously a glass of wine is not necessarily harmful, but beware of the possible glasses of … beer with the appetizers, the wine with the food, the cider / champagne / champagne toast, and the liquor or the dessert glass. Besides that you can end up dizzy, sleepy or dancing the conga ahead of time, it is not good for your body.

Try to drink moderate alcohol and intercalate it with water.

And if later you have to take the car … the words are too much. Do not drink and drive!

6. DISINTOXICATE

After the key meetings … detox! But no drastic diets. The ideal is to return to the usual diet and introduce elements that help us eliminate toxins. We recommend infusions of green tea or warm water with lemon and honey.

7. LEARN TO SAY NO.

The only thing more tempting than a tray of nougats, polvorones, duces … Christmas is to say “yes” to all those who offer them to us. Avoid boycotting your goals, be realistic with your responsibilities and diminish your social “obligations.”

8. ENJOY AND GIVE THANKS

Finally, we can only tell you, although we believe it is not necessary, to enjoy as much as possible of these meetings with family and friends (even if the typical heavy brother-in-law or the cousin who wants to lead the singing voice in the arrangement of the Table) and that you give thanks for those moments and for all that you have.
