It’s that time of the year again! Time to lose those extra pounds we’ve gained over Christmas by going Veganuary, starting a detox plan or just eating less and exercising more.
I’m not a big fan of juicing at this time of the year and, in fact, think January is one of the worst months of the year to do any extreme detox. Far better to wait till Spring. However, I am a big fan of the 5:2 diet. A gentle form of fasting for health as well as weight loss and one that my own Doctor in Saltdean recommends to her patients! (Always check with your own doctor first before embarking on any change of diet).
‘We're likely to eat a shocking 6000 calories on Christmas Day, as well as an extra 500 calories a day on the run up to the holiday, which starts earlier and earlier each year. By the time we reach New Years Eve, we could be wearing an extra 5lbs around the tummy! It then takes weeks to lose that extra weight, starting during the most depressing month of the year.’
Local Author, Nutritionist and Blogger, Suzi Grant, of Alternative Ageing, www.alternativeageing.net shares her top tips for avoiding putting on those extra pounds over the holiday, whilst still enjoying Christmas, so you don’t have to start the year feeling miserable on a diet or detox.
