On New Year's Eve, high-calorie "bombs" are placed everywhere: roast chicken, homemade pie. There are hundreds of calories in each of these meals. How to save yourself from overeating? Oleg Irishkin, doctor of sports medicine, specialist in nutrition, offers simple but effective ways to avoid overeating.
Don't create the conditions "hunger-fast food"
The surest way to overeat on a holiday night is to restrict yourself from food, for example, skip breakfast or lunch and stuff yourself in the evening. The organism that is in the conditions of "hunger strike - gluttony" will not work in your favor. Instead of functioning normally, it will engage in slowing down the metabolism and building up the reserve in case you decide to starve it again.
Before the holiday, eat a tablespoon of fiber and drink 500 ml of water
This will improve your digestion. Just try the dishes on the festive dining table no earlier than half an hour after taking the fiber.
Make a buffet instead of the traditional New Year's table
There are three advantages in this version: you have to cook less, you will be able to avoid the lavish meal and spend more time with your friends and family.
Use low-calorie foods
For example, shrimp, clams, quail eggs, vegetables, vegetables, etc. Instead of traditional salad dressings based on mayonnaise or sour cream, use vegetable oils - olive oil, citrus and grape seed oil. Lemon juice with a slice of ginger is also suitable for sauces.
