SURVIVING EASTER WITHOUT GAINING WEIGHT
There is never going to be an easy time of year for dieters, and most of us have a love hate relationship with popular holidays that are, it seems, an excuse to indulge With Easter looming and chocolate eggs lining the shelves, dieting temptation seems to lie everywhere. Here is your guide to surviving Easter without putting on unwanted kilos......But without feeling that you have missed out either!!
1. Dont Buy Early
There are often big discounts on Easter eggs well before Easter. This is not because big chain stores want you to have a great deal in credit crunch times, its because they want to maximise their profits. How? Well, if you buy all your eggs six weeks in advance, chances are that you will have eaten some of them well before Easter ... and you will need to buy more.
2. Bake Your Own Buns and Cakes
When it comes to traditional Easter treats like hot cross buns, why not bake your own? You will have complete control over what goes in, and it is often possible to adapt recipes to make them lower fat.
3. Think Of Alternative Gifts
Whether you are the giver or the receiver, brainstorm some Easter gifts that dont involve chocolate! You could also put together a dieter friendly Easter basket of healthy and/or non edible treats: fresh fruits and seasonal flowers work well.
4. If You Do Buy Chocolate Eggs, Go Small
Many of us struggle with portion control when foods dont come ready portioned. A 100g milk chocolate Easter egg contains around 520 calories & thats without the chocolate bars and candy that eggs typically come with. Try buying or asking for small, wrapped eggs (like shelled nuts, unwrapping each individual piece of chocolate means you will eat fewer). Then you can enjoy one or two as a treat, without breaking the calorie bank in a single sitting. Dark chocolate is also a better choice than milk or white. It contains less sugar, fewer calories, and more health benefits. With dark chocolate, you are also likely to be satisfied with less.
5. Children and Chocolate
You would be hard pressed to ban chocolate eggs from the house entirely, but it is a good idea to encourage children to focus on something other than just the chocolate. The Easter weekend is a great time for family activities. Why not have an active Easter egg hunt in your yard or local park, to encourage kids to run around and burn off some of that chocolate? Also, dont eat your kids Easter eggs! If they get given too many by indulgent aunts and grandparents, keep back a few to use as cooking ingredients throughout the year.
6. Compensate Before and After
A bit more chocolate than usual is not going to cause you any long term problems, but make sure you are careful about eating healthily in the lead up to Easter & afterwards. If you have been scoffing chocolate all day in the office, or if you go on a big chocolate binge all week after Easter, you will end up feeling ill, sluggish and guilty. Stick to your usual healthy eating patterns, and you will enjoy those Easter treats all the more.
