Healthy Eating this Winter

Categories: Health, FitnessIt is usually during wintertime that we gain weight, and that we get flu. What can you do to ensure that you don’t gain weight this winter, while still providing your body with the necessary nutrients to keep your immune system in top form to ward of infections? Here are some answers to both.
Winter weight gain is mostly due to the fact that warm, ‘comfort’ foods are so much more attractive in colder weather.
Compare what you typically eat on a summer’s day – muesli, fruit and yoghurt for breakfast, an avo-bagel for lunch, macaroni-and-cheese or chicken for dinner and water, juice and fresh fruit in between; with what you eat on a winter’s day –an English breakfast, creamy chicken soup and bread for lunch, and tomato stew, veggies and rice for dinner, pudding afterwards, and coffee or hot chocolate in between. The difference could easily add up to 300 to 500 calories per day.
Every extra 7 000 calories you consume and don’t burn through exercise, will be stored in and on your body as pure fat – an accumulation which can translate into a one-kilogram weight gain every two to three weeks.
