Stay Slim at Christmas When You’re A Guest

healthy christmas dinner

If you’re a guest you have no control over how the food is cooked so you can’t request that they steam rather than fry or serve plain carrots over honey-glazed ones. Here’s what you should and shouldn’t eat at Christmas. Stick to this list and you won’t put on the usual Christmas pounds…

Eat:

  • a low calorie snack prior so you’re not tempted to each too much
  • lots of lean meat like the turkey or chicken
  • Lots and lots of vegetables
  • low cal alcohol such as vodka and diet coke
  • your own low cal dessert you brought with
  • just 1 big meal on the day

Avoid:

  • potatoes
  • parsnips
  • the sauces
  • dessert
  • copious alcohol
  • cheese board
  • snacks such as mince pies
  • shortbread / chocolate and other holiday nibbles
