Staycation ≠ a vacation from your good habits!

Planning  a staycation or just going to enjoy the holiday break at home, remember to keep in mind that even when you’re on holiday you can keep your healthy eating habits intact and lose pounds, or even maintain your weight!

Holiday time is not the time to diet, but it doesn’t mean you should forget all the good habits you’ve learned. Making healthy choices wherever you go is the secret to maintaining.

Ask yourself:  do you really want to come home with all your hard work undone?  A few simple and smart choices can make all the difference:

  • Plan ahead
  • Find a healthy balance. The golden rule!
  • Do your workout early in the day
  • Drink a lot of water
  • Remember food swaps
  • No skipping meals
  • Practice assertiveness skills so you can refuse foods or activities without feeling guilty or hurting others’ feelings
  • Visualise yourself eating healthily prior to the holiday
