Christmas is right around the corner and so is a meal loaded with sugar, calories and fat. No one can blame you for wanting to eat all you can on Christmas but you can still maintain a healthy diet. Wondering how? Here are 5 tips that will make your Christmas happy, wholesome and healthy.

1. Water is your best buddy

Water is essential for the sustenance of life, but if you are looking to shed pounds, the first thing you should do is keep yourself hydrated. Drinking water increases the rate of calorie burn in your system and helps get rid of the harmful toxins from your body that generally cause health issues. On an average, you should drink at least 7-8 glasses or 3-4 litres of water each day. Just like other days, stay well hydrated on Christmas and keep that weight gain away!

2. Say yes to protein

Protein is a vital part of a balanced diet. You should include high protein food in every meal. Protein helps to keep the blood sugar balance stable and keeps us full for a longer period, this helps us to avoid binge eating. And you must know, overeating is the most common barrier in achieving a healthy body. Also, protein takes more calories to burn than what it gives to the body. Protein helps to build your muscle mass and helps reduce fat.
