Eat Mindfully

Some people may put on some weight over the festive seasons due to the extra calories gained from snacks and treats.

The normal recommended daily calorie intake is 2200 kcal for men and 1800 kcal for women. Some reports show that people tend to eat two to three times of the daily recommended calorie intake during festive seasons!

Being aware of the amount you eat will help you maintain a healthy body weight.

Here are some handy tips during the festive season:

1. Avoid making visits on an empty stomach  

  • We tend to eat without self-control when we are hungry. 
  • Avoid this by filling up on some healthy food such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains like brown rice or wholemeal bread before visits.

2. Be aware of what you are eating and drinking. Do it slowly and mindfully. 

  • Take note of the amount of food and drinks you are taking to avoid too much snacking
  • Chewing and eating your food slowly gives your stomach time to digest the food and for you to feel full. This prevents you from overeating.

3. Choose your food wisely 

  • Festive goodies are usually packed with sugar and fat. 
  • Read the nutritional information on the packaging before eating.
