How to stay on course with your fat loss goals over Christmas 🎄

For most, there will be a large increase in social gatherings (work parties, nights out with friends, family events etc). It is important to attend and enjoy these, but with the correct approach if you wish to keep moving forward with your goals.

If attending events where there will be finger food, make sure you eat a high protein, high veg meal beforehand. This will ensure you are satiated, leaving you less likely to spend the evening nibbling on bits and pieces.

If you know you have a big night out planned on a Saturday, reduce your calories by 100-200 each day from Monday to Friday through carbs and fats. Increase your step count from Monday-Friday. This will give a small amount of leeway for the additional calories that may be consumed through alcohol on your night out.

Alcohol. Stick to clear spirits and calorie free mixers ✅ Avoid pints and cocktails ❌This will greatly decrease the calories you will consume through alcohol on the night. –

Training 💪 There is no excuse to slack off on your training. Most gyms are only closed one or two days over the Christmas period. –

If you can stick to these simple tips, there is no reason you can’t have a great Christmas and stay on track with your fat loss goals ✌️

How to workout on holidays 🤔

Throughout last summer I have seen many posts regarding how people can stay on track with their nutrition, workout on holidays and how to ensure they will see no regression. Some I agree with some I don’t.

If you are in the lead up to a show/competition or body composition or fitness goal (like getting a 6 Pack) and want to keep everything moving forward, of course, continue with your training, continue with the nutrition that’s helping you work towards these goals.

If you are “The Average Joe”, in my opinion, this time should be used to unwind a little, especially on the nutrition side. Enjoy your vacation, as @vickycornick said in her most recent post, “train if you want to train”. Enjoy some meals out, have a few ice creams, consume a few drinks (if that’s what you’re into). Am I saying eat everything in sight and drink yourself into oblivion, obviously not?

If you have been working hard all year, are you going to undo all the hard work you’ve put in while away for a week? Definitely not. It’s likely you will come home a few lbs heavier but nothing that can’t be quickly amended with a couple of weeks of tightening everything up on your return.
