    Endless amounts of food, party after party offering delicious drinks, inviting fires with hot cups of cocoa… It’s not hard to see why Christmas is seen as a time for over-indulging. In fact, research by the British Dietetic Association has found that, on average, we pile on 5 pounds during the festive period.

    But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year, avoid the endless cycle of piling on the pounds and working extra hard in the New Year to drop the weight. Instead, make this holiday season your best one yet – for you and your waistline! We’ve put together some clever willpower tricks to give you a much-needed boost, so you can stay slim over the party season.

But these willpower tricks don’t mean that you have to miss out on all the fun – you can still enjoy the festive season and treat yourself, without packing on weight.
