1. Don’t put it off – start now, not tomorrow
Don’t wait for tomorrow, next Monday or next month to put your plan into action. Start with your next meal. If you’re going away, have something in the fridge or freezer that you can cook easily when you return or, if you shop for food online, book in an order of healthy foods to arrive when you get home.
It’s easy to let the holiday slide into normal life so start as you mean to go on with your next meal and get back on track. Even if you’ve had a big lunch, a chocolate bar, or a piece of cake already today, don’t let that stop you making a start today.
2. If you’re offered a drink, choose a sugar free one
It’s easy to consume lots of calories from sugary drinks. Whether it’s a fizzy drink, fruit juice, squash, sugary tea or a coffee shop flavoured latte, they can all add up. Go sugar free, whether it’s water, a hot drink without sugar or a ‘diet’ fizzy drink.
