5 tips to help you maintain your diet while celebrating the New Year with friends
Can you take a quick status report on everyone's Holiday Survival preparations? I know you've had a tough time sticking to your plan to lose weight this past year, and the New Year is almost here. The goal is to make prudent choices while feeling like you're missing out as little as possible.
You can still enjoy yourself with loved ones on special occasions without derailing your fitness goals or workout program.
Host a party where guests are showered with attention and care
Throwing a celebration with a twist can help you kick off your efforts to enhance your health in a memorable way. Instead of throwing a typical party with drinks and snacks, why not host a spa night for all of your best friends? You can treat yourself and your guests to a spa day in the comfort of your own home by stocking up on face masks and manicure kits, or you can hire a mobile beauty or massage therapist to come to your location. Serve healthy smoothies and mock tails alongside veggie crudités and hummus as a refreshing snack for your guests.
Create Some Healthy and Tasty Drinks
If you really must toast the coming of the New Year with a drink in hand, you may do so in the healthiest way possible by limiting the amount of alcohol you consume and mixing up your own healthy cocktails with fresh fruits and juices at home. Making your own fruit cocktails will help to slow down the rate at which you consume alcohol, and it will also ensure that you are getting at least some nutrients and antioxidants along with your alcohol.
Avoid deep-fried items in favor of healthier alternatives that don't sacrifice flavor
Make wise decisions about what you do. Snacks of every conceivable variety are available at New Year's celebrations. Several snack options are available that don't involve deep-frying in oil and grease, such as baked or steamed varieties. It's not required that you give up pakodas forever, but you should know that tikkas and steamed dumplings are considerably healthier alternatives. You can take the initiative just as quickly as I can. If you're attending or hosting a potluck New Year's Eve party, consider bringing some lighter foods to share. Among the choice of oily delicacies, something non-greasy and refreshing is always welcome.
Popcorn with a Movie
Do you think it would be too much trouble to put into effect all of these suggestions? The good news is that you don't have to sacrifice any of your current comforts in order to make positive changes to your health. Though it probably won't do much for your health compared to getting out and jogging in the fresh air, there is some evidence that watching TV is good for you. Researchers have shown that comedy benefits various physical and mental health indicators, including lowered blood pressure and a boosted immune system. Popcorn also has antioxidants, minerals, and fiber that can benefit the body.
Curb your sugar intake
Besides being bad for your teeth, a diet high in sugar increases the likelihood of unhealthful weight growth and obesity, both of which can lead to serious and persistent health problems.
It is essential to be aware of the amount of "hidden" sugars that may be present in processed foods and beverages, much like the amount of salt. Soda, for example, may have as much as 10 teaspoons of added sugar per can.
The dangers associated with drinking alcohol make its use unadvisable
Though excessive alcohol consumption is not part of a healthful diet, it is commonly associated with New Year's celebrations across many countries. Regular heavy drinking, and heavy drinking in general, increases the chance of injury and has long-term consequences such as liver damage, cancer, heart disease, and mental illness.
