How was your w/e?
Christmas shopping, visiting, family time, wrapping, sending cards, crimbo tunes, it’s all getting FESTIVE!!
Eeeek we’re officially on the countdown …
Christmas is coming SOON which means so is 2017!!
With temptation EVERYWHERE and even less available time for workouts I KNOW it’s difficult to keep control of your waistline.
But are you going to kick off 2017
Feeling like a bloater?
Fear not, I’m here to help!
Because I’m human too and KNOW it can be difficult
(yes I have to work hard at keeping in shape too)
I’m going to share 2 cheeky tricks with you, to help you FIGHT that festive flab and go strong into 2017.
These tricks are especially suitable if you have ZERO willpower.
Super simple and something ANYONE can do.
Infact these tips can help you consume a mahoosive HALF of your usual festive calories!!
75% of our calories come from food that we eat in bowls, plates and cups.
Why should YOU care?
According to eating behaviour expert Dr. Brian Wansink, we can control HOW MUCH we consume by varying the sizes our these bowls, plates and cups.
Studies showed that people drink an average of 20% MORE if their beverage is in a short, wide glass as opposed to a tall narrow glass.
We visually process the information that the tall, narrow glass appears bigger.
Switch up your glass for a tall, narrow one and you’ll drink LESS.
A 20% reduction of liquid calories adds up quickly.
Simple but super powerful – give it a go.
BOWLS, PLATES & SPOONS:
This is where it REALLY gets good.
In Dr. Wansink’s lab, they performed an experiment on how sizes of bowls and scoops can affect ice cream portions.
Adults who were given SMALLER bowls to serve themselves ice cream ate 31% less than those given BIGGER bowls.
That’s A LOT fewer calories.
Then they added a bigger ice cream scoop to the experiment.
People that were given bigger bowls AND bigger scoops ended up serving themselves a WHOPPING 57% more ice cream.
Imagine eating LESS THAN HALF your normal festive calories this season simply by changing the size of your bowls, cups and serving utensils.
This takes ZERO willpower, just choose a salad plate instead of a regular plate when serving yourself.
Opt for a teaspoon for desert instead of a tablespoon – even better SHARE it.
You get my drift.
This may seem too simple to work but I promise it does and hey, don’t just take my word for it.
Give it a go!!
