The important thing to remember is not to punish yourself or allow in guilty and negative thoughts. It’s ok to allow yourself measured treats, exante is here to help you get back on track whenever you’re ready. To enjoy Easter totally guilt-free, check out our egg-cellent top tips…
- Planning is key – planning your meals ahead of time will make it easier to keep your food intake under control. Opt for meals and snacks that are rich in protein and vegetables so you’re still consuming the nutrients you need.
- Be Portion-wise – Guess what? You can still enjoy chocolate ‘on-plan’ by ensuring you count the calories! Portion your desired chocolate by weight and calculate the calories based on the packet information. If you know how many calories you are consuming, this will be a lot easier to track. Choose smaller, individually wrapped treats to make the calorie counting even easier.
- Stay active – If you know you are going to be enjoying a few Easter treats, you may want to do some more exercise. How about a hike, or an Easter Egg Hunt in the garden for the whole family to enjoy? Activity doesn’t have to be strenuous, but light movement and being on your feet will always help.
- Choose one day – If you know there will be lots of temptation during the bank holiday weekend, limit yourself to just one day. Steer clear of the temptation on the days surrounding Easter Sunday, but allow yourself to enjoy the big day.
