In the spirit of recycling, here is a reminder of a previous Easter post….

Many of our clients, and countless other people, are well into a new year healthy eating or Weight Management plan or may just be starting a programme in time for summer. The Easter weekend is probably second only to Christmas in being a difficult time to stick to any sort of healthy diet.

Here are a few tips to getting through the Easter weekend:

  • Chocolate is high in fat (and therefore very calorie-dense) and nutritionally poor – it will seriously impact your weight loss progress if you are not EXTREMELY careful!!! While no chocolate eggs are a “healthy” or “diet” option, it is true that some are less fattening than others. This link will show you the calorie details of some of the most common eggs: Easter egg calorie counter.
  • If someone does give you chocolate, and you can’t bear to pass it on, why not keep it in the fridge and eat a little of it over a number of days or weeks. If you have a little of this instead of a pudding after your main meal it will have less impact on your weight loss.
  • Rather than eating chocolate eggs with your children, why not take the traditional approach and decorate fresh eggs! Much less fattening and a great source of protein (egg protein is of high biological value as it contains all the essential amino acids needed by the human body) and an average of only 78 calories per medium egg.
  • Once you’ve painted the eggs, have an Easter Egg Hunt to get outside in the fresh air and get moving! This is such great fun for all ages, and much better for you than sitting in front of the TV eating chocolate!

If you are following one of our Herbalife Programmes, here are some extra tips:

  • Have a chocolate shake!!! If you don’t have any Chocolate Formula 1, or don’t have time to pick any up from me, try a spoon of low calorie hot chocolate powder in a Vanilla shake
  • The Chocolate Peanut Protein bars are seriously YUMMMMMY – why not ask for some instead of chocolate eggs! They are high in heart-healthy soy protein, nutrient dense, and provide great nutrition for in-between-meals!
  • Make sure you use your products as directed – if you don’t have the correct nutrition levels, you’ll feel hungry and more inclined to “cheat”
  • Thermojetics Green Tea Boost and Thermo Complete will help you to control any cravings – if you are not already using these products, contact me to arrange to get some!

Whatever you do, and whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope you have a lovely long weekend with your families and loved ones!

As we have a lot of new female Wellness and Weight Management clients this month, I thought it was worth mentioning that most ladies will notice regular fluctuations in their weight and size depending on the “time of the month”. If you maintain a graph or chart of your weight and measurements (I can provide one if you’d like to) you can usually see these fluctuations really clearly.

Many people will notice an extra centimetre, maybe even two around their bust and waist, in the run up to their menstrual date and may find that they do not show any weight loss for that week.
