Simple lifestyle tweaks - along with surprisingly healthy indulgences - to keep you on track whatever your weekend plans!

The weekend is a time to relax, catch up with family and friends – and treat yourself to a little indulgence! But how do you make sure that your weekend habits don’t undo all your good work and healthy eating during the week?

Our ten simple lifestyle tweaks and diet tips – along with the surprisingly healthy indulgences to enjoy guilt-free – will help you keep your weight and fitness firmly on track whatever your weekend plans.

Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean a life of sensible, sober weekends – in fact, a relaxing break from the week’s stresses has been proven help keep you slim! In other words, weekend indulgences like hearty brunches or a heavenly spa massage could help you lose weight, too.

When it comes to food, it’s not about surviving on celery sticks and rice cakes when Friday rolls around – not only will that make you miserable, but chances are that a restrictive diet on the weekend will just cause you to overeat later on in the week. Instead, use the weekend to really savour your food and prepare for the week ahead. We’ll show you how with our easy diet tips. Because who wants to spend their down time counting calories?

In fact, these lifestyle tweaks and diet tips are so easy that you won’t even mind incorporating them into your weekend routine. This also means that you’re more likely to stick to your healthy eating goals – when diets aren’t achievable, people tend to give up and binge eat instead. We’ve got all the advice you need to loosen up over the weekend – without having to loosen up your belt at the end of it, too.
