Once ago there was a pagan mid-winter festival called Yule; it was a 3-nighter – I imagine they feasted on wild boar, washed down with mulled ale! Now celebrations are spread out over weeks so that if you wait until the new year to get “back on track”, you risk doing lots of damage! But you don’t need to go all “bah humbug” either; here are some strategies to help you survive the season and stay healthy as well as happy throughout.

• Don’t deny yourself your favourite foods – give yourself permission to eat what you want; choose wisely but don’t be greedy!

• Eat consciously – the average calorie intake on Christmas day is more than three times our daily requirement. If you quit unconscious grazing on chocolate coins and refrain from“knocking back” every glass of champagne you’re offered, then and you can drastically reduce this.

• Step-up your exercise – if you’re going to eat more calories you need to burn more. Even just a couple of thousand more steps a day will help and if you’re short on time work harder/walk quicker!

• Prioritise your social calendar – anything you can skip? If so, make your excuses and switch the umpteenth monotonous work do (yes I did just write that) for some shut- eye so you look fabulous and ready to party harder when it matters the most!

• Limit/Avoid Alcohol – typically I’ll choose to avoid alcohol as I hate feeling rubbish and I don’t need it to have a great time. But if it is important to you then be cautious; alcohol is a saboteur of restraint, full of empty calories and can disrupt digestion so badly that instead of looking svelte in your LBD you will look pregnant!

• Get back on track immediately – so it happens, you’ve over-indulged, but you don’t need to go helter-skelter towards self-annihilation. Eat lightly for a day, replace dinner with bone broth and get an early night.

• Finally, think positive – don’t assume that you’ve gained a kilo from an extra mince- pie or two but do weigh yourself regularly!

Should you still find you need help getting “back on your wagon”, you know who to call!
