A simple way to avoid festive season weight gain

It’s hard to stick to a diet over Christmas, so don’t. Here is a simple way to avoid festive season weight gain and to even lose weight…

Festive season weight gain doesn’t have to be inevitable, but avoiding it does require an action plan of sorts.

Fortunately, you don’t have to count calories. Simply limit the number of hours you eat during a day.

Yes, we’re talking about Intermittent Fasting.

Intermittent fasting, a type of fasting that can be practised daily, has been found to boost weight loss and slow down ageing all while protecting against metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes

Research has shown that eating in a 10-hour window and fasting for 14 hours is enough to help restore balance, stave off metabolic diseases and maintain good health.


If you want to try the 10-14-hour intermittent fast, you could eat breakfast at 8 am and your last meal for the day at 6 pm.

Fast weight loss

It may be a bit extreme, but if you want to lose weight fast (pun intended), research has found that the ‘16:8’ fast works well. It means fasting for 16 hours and eating within eight hours. 

This would mean you eat your last meal at 8pm and then fast until 12 the next day (Effectively skipping breakfast and waiting till lunch to eat)
