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.
1 Party wisely – Don’t go hungry to parties! Eat something light before hand, to reduce your chances of snacking on the discretionary foods!
2 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!
4 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!
