Here is the second part of my holiday survival guide, with some more great tips to get through the holidays. If you missed the first one, you can find it here.

Eat Slowly

It takes our body about 15-20 minutes to realise that it is full. If you eat too quickly then you may well be eating more than you need. Try putting your knife and fork down between each mouthful and wait 5 minutes before going up for seconds. That way you will know if you really are still hungry

Use smaller plates

Lots of studies have shown that using smaller plates can reduce the amount you eat by 22%. If we have a larger plate we place more food on it than we would normally and then eat it all even if we are not hungry

Fill up on Fruit & Vegetables

Vegetables are extremely filling and full of lots of vitamins and minerals that will keep you healthy. Eat fresh fruit and vegetables as snacks (carrot sticks or cucumber sticks are great) or fill your plate up with vegetables and salad first before you add the carbs and fat

Healthy Food Swaps

There are lots of healthy food swaps you can make over the holidays. Decreasing the amount of processed food and added sugar you eat will decrease your risk of developing diseases and also reduce your chances of weight gain. Read here for some great ideas.

Drink Water

Make sure you drink enough water over the holiday period. Drinking water will help fill you up, improves digestion and will help your body recover from excess eating and drinking.
