TUESDAY TIP FROM OUR DIETITIAN … TREATS
It’s that time of the year again, Easter is just around the corner and the chocolate is displayed in the supermarkets right in eyeshot. Wondering how you can enjoy this time of the year whilst still maintaining your health goals?
Enjoy chocolate in moderation, choose to eat two pieces of your favourite chocolate instead of more and enjoy every mouthful. Building this healthy and positive relationship with food is important as restricted desirable foods altogether, almost always leads to overeating or binging.
Do something after eating to prevent from overeating or feeling guilty. This may mean getting back to work or doing your go-to relaxation activity, or exercising.
You should feel great that you are on track with your health goals and your hard work has you feeling healthier and more positive. It’s okay to treat yourself, the most important thing is simply to return to your regular routine as soon as possible.
