On average Australian's gain 0.8 to 1kg over the Christmas period. Avoid the Christmas bulge with our top five tips from Dietitian Kiah Paetz.

 

 

Party wisely –  Don’t go hungry to parties! Eat something light before hand, to reduce your chances of snacking on the discretionary foods!

Fill up on the healthy stuff – aim to fill half your plate with vegetables – they’re low in calories but packed full of nutrients!

3 Sit down and chew your food slowly – it takes approximately 20 minutes for our brain to register that our stomach is full!

Stuck for gift ideas, why not ask for a gym membership and get the new year off on the right foot

5 Do not feel guilty about having a few treats, but do it in moderation – it’s Christmas after all!
