Get rid of that Festive weight!

Research has shown that the average person puts on 1.8 pounds during the festive period, which is not a huge amount. The problem lies is that people will not shift this extra weight during the next couple of months. Follow these simple steps to combat this.

Drink water
For the majority of us, Christmas is spent nibbling cookies, cakes and all sorts of other unhealthy food. Therefore, once the festive season ends our bodies are filled with harmful toxins. To flush out these substances, drink lots of water.  You should aim to drink around three quarters to one full gallon of water in order to flush out these toxins. Drinking this much water will also kick start your metabolism.

Do you want to kick your sluggish post-Christmas metabolism into life to shed those post-Christmas pounds? Well, you’ll be please to hear that protein is the solution to your metabolism issues. For breakfast eat around 10 to 15 grams of protein in order to get your metabolism into gear at the start of the day. An egg on toast or some low-fat yoghurt with honey and nuts is a great breakfast if you want to shed that Christmas weight.

Green Tea
Green tea has a countless number of health benefits. There is no better time to start drinking green tea, and to keep drinking it throughout the year.  One of the main benefits of Green Tea is weight loss, as it rapidly increases your metabolsim.  The polyphenol found in green tea works to intensify levels of fat oxidation and the rate at which your body turns food into calories.

Make a plan
January is a time to Kick start a new fitness and nutrtion plan. But the real goal is to mantain this for the whole year and not just for a couple of months. This needs to become a lifestyle change.
