The turkey, Quality Streets and mulled wine is part of the festive season, and boy do we love it! Tis the season to enjoy yourselves and relax your normally-strict mantras and relax. That being said, feeling full and uncomfortable is never fun. Try these simple tips to keep things ticking over this Christmas…
It may sound obvious but taking the time to chew your food will aid digestion and let you take stock of when you’re actually full
Squeezing a little lemon on your turkey will help break down the protein
MAKE A BREW
Although a glass of champagne or wine is Christmas tradition, try to squeeze in some cups of peppermint tea to help digestion
Over-done it the day before? Start the day with a pint of ice cold water to get your organs moving and replace any lost hydration overnight. Ditch the coffee for a hot water and lemon juice to kick start digestion and boost your metabolism
CAP YOUR PORTIONS
Although all of that wonderful food is exciting, don’t attack your Christmas lunch starving, have an apple or piece of fruit an hour beforehand to ensure your eyes aren’t bigger than your tummy!
