Binge Eating: Why you should avoid going over the top at Christmas

Christmas is a time to indulge in sweet treats and calorific foods that are so comforting and warming. That’s what the adverts tell you at least, but don’t accept this. One month of going overboard on fatty foods can be detrimental to your health, and it can undo the amazing work you’ve achieved in recent months. There’s time for the odd mince pie or Christmas cake, and of course the turkey, stuffing and ‘pigs in blankets’ on Christmas day, however, this does not mean that you need to binge-eat for the entire month just because ‘it’s Christmas’. Take it easy and remember that your body still needs good fibre and nutrition, so keep those veggies, nuts, greens, fruits and proteins coming your way. Keep exercising too, and your body will thank you in January when everyone else in your workplace is left heavy footed, bloated and napping!
