HIGH-CALORIE NUTRITION AND INACTIVITY CAN CAUSE RAPID WEIGHT GAIN
For this, first of all, it is necessary to answer the question of how should I eat before New Year’s Eve and prepare the body for the Christmas table and the next stay at home. Special meals, nuts and desserts for New Year’s have already started to be planned.However, given that we will stay at home for 4 days and our days will be inactive, we need to be very careful about nutrition.
“DO NOT STORE HIGH-HEATING NUTRITION AT EVENING”
The biggest mistake made in the New Year’s nutrition is that the person does not eat anything from the morning and takes on herself/himself in the evening.
We should collect the suggestions under 3 headings: before New Year, New Year’s Eve and after. A few days before the new year, be sure to consume 2.5-3 liters of water a day to accelerate your metabolism and gain advantage. Providing your protein intake in a sufficient and balanced way will help speed up your metabolism. A nutrition with lower calories, less fat and sugar, and more fresh fruit and vegetables on the days before Christmas is a good preparation for the New Year. On New Year’s Day, it is best to start calorie restriction in the morning. As every day, care should be taken to make breakfast, lunch and snacks and meals should not be skipped.
PREFER FRUIT AND MILK DESSERTS INSTEAD OF HEAVY AND SYRUP DESSERTS
Dinner of the most important meal of the day:
Make sure that dinner is a balanced meal of carbohydrate-protein and fat. For this, you should include 4 basic food groups on your table. (meat-milk-cereal-vegetable / fruit) Prefer turkey-goose-duck-chicken-fish instead of red meat. Healthy methods such as grill-boiled-steamed-oven or pan without oil should be preferred as cooking method without adding oil. Stuffed turkey is what is referred to as a must for New Year’s Eve. If you have chosen this, turkey is a healthy food in terms of low cholesterol. Our suggestion may be to use bulgur instead of rice. However, prefer to eat more turkey meat. Do not include delicatessen products on your table. Do not include rice and pasta on your table as much as possible, and if you are going to eat them, keep the portion small. As an appetizer, choose low-fat appetizers prepared with cheese or yoghurt, mostly vegetables. Do not eat your meals too fast. Instead of chips, seeds and chocolates with high fat content, consume nuts, which we call healthy seeds, and fresh-dried fruits, provided that they are in moderation. It should be consumed one hour after a sweet meal. Fruit and milk desserts should always be your choice instead of heavy and sherbet desserts.
HOW SHOULD WE NUTRITION AFTER CHRISTMAS ?
Start the day with a glass of warm water the day after New Year’s Eve.
Make breakfast as brunch on January 1. Continue the day with snacks and have dinner early. Go to sleep early. Make sure to rest your stomach and body, which is tired by digesting what you eat all night. Exercise indoors because you cannot get out. Choose herbal teas such as fennel, anise to relax your stomach, and balm for body rest. Also, the most important thing is to keep an adequate intake of water to get rid of toxins. On these days when you stay at home after New Year’s Eve, spend your meals except breakfast with vegetable-based, soup-style stews. Avoid foods that are very salty, fatty and high in red meat.
