Winter is a time for comfort food, and also of celebration, with Christmas and New Year.
Having a Healthy Christmas
Studies show that, people tend to gain weight over the holiday season. Perhaps this is not surprising with the extra calories consumed at our pre-Christmas parties, Christmas Day itself and the build up to the New Year.
Easy to gain, hard to lose

The following pages provide a nutritional survival guide to the festive season from parties to hangovers, from Christmas Dinner Joy to Boxing Day Blues and how to start the New Year with good nutrition ways.
