Christmas Stuffing can take on a whole new meaning in my family and Christmas day is definitely a time for the pants with a stretchy waistband BUT what about after the eating is over?
A summer Kiwi Christmas means shorts, skirts, sun and swim suits.
This is a time when no one wants to look like they ate all the Christmas Pies!
When it comes to watching your weight and calories, boredom can sometimes mean that we overeat. The key to sticking to a Calorie controlled diet is PREPARATION and VARIETY!!! Keep a variety of Optifast bars, soups, shakes and desserts on hand so you do not get bored of your diet. This way you will always have something fast to prepare and delicious to eat.
The Optifast diet works by reducing your calorie rate below 800 calories a day – this means your body has to draw on your own fat stores instead of getting calories from food.
How would you like to control calories and still eat chocolate dessert?
Being on a diet does not mean going without dessert. You can add a handful of fresh chopped strawberries to your Optifast chocolate dessert for a decadent dessert without stress. It takes two minutes to make and five minutes to set.
You can purchase the Optifast range of weight loss shakes, soups, bars and desserts on our website
at a great price.
OPTIFAST TIP 1: Want a cool summer treat that still fits into your Optifast Diet? Make your Optifast coffee milkshake into ice cream by adding water and placing in the freezer. When you are ready to eat it just lightly thaw by heating in the microwave on medium low for 30 seconds to a minute (depending on your microwave power). You do not want it to get to soft so keep an eye on it.
OPTIFAST TIP 2: Give your Optifast strawberry shake a flavour hit. Pop some mango pieces into your freezer and have them ready for when you make your next shake. Throw them into a blender to make a puree, then add them to your shake for a cool mango and strawberry shake.
