A bit of Fizz.
Of course, you are going to be challenged by your family or friends to have a drink or two, but please remember that it is dangerous to drink alcohol when in ketosis, so please ask for our guidelines on how to carb up so that you are fully out of ketosis, if you wish to partake in a drink or two. You can pass off soda water in a tall glass with ice as vodka/gin and no-one will be any the wiser, also you could take some of our water flavourings to mix. And a big bonus is no Hangover the next morning! Remember stick to your guns and don`t apologise for not drinking. Be the designated driver.
Dancing the night away.
Get up and strut your stuff to all those great Christmas songs, the more you boogie the more calories you will burn! Keep yourself hydrated throughout the night as you may break a sweat dancing the night away! Plus it`s a sneaky way of getting some low impact exercise in, which is great for toning your body. Don`t linger after the event and go straight home so that you are not tempted by a late night kebab!
Getting all Glammed up.
Enjoy the process of trying on new clothes and take photos of yourself wearing different outfits so that you can see how amazing you look before making your purchase and don’t forget to experiment with your makeup now that have lost some weight the bone structure on your face will be showing. Who doesn`t love getting all glammed up for Christmas and New Year parties with family and friends
Above all enjoy yourself over the holidays and it`s a great opportunity to catch up with family and friends.
