Fitness Nutrition After the Festive Period

Fitness Nutrition After the Festive Period

It's late December (at the time of this writing) and the annual festive season is almost over. In a little over a week all the mince pies will be gone along with the yule logs, sugary beverages, and all the other dietary trappings of Christmas and New Year's. Then it will be time to get back on the good nutrition wagon. Are you ready? We are, thanks to our focus on fitness nutrition.

Nutrivend is proud to be a company promoting fitness nutrition 12 months of the year. Having said that, we understand that people tend to take a break from healthy eating during Christmas. That is both normal and completely acceptable. But at some point, unhealthy eating takes its toll. At some point following the festive period, the piper has to be paid.

There was a great blog published by students at Birmingham City University in anticipation of the festivities. The blog laid out five strategies people could employ to guarantee they still practice good nutritional habits even in the midst of festive partying. The parties may be all but over at this point, but the tips are still helpful heading into the new year.

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is one of the best things you can consume in your search for good nutrition. Though water lacks significant nutritional value itself, your body needs it to maintain good health. Water also flushes some of the toxins out of your system as well. We recommend drinking plenty of water while at the same time avoiding alcohol. When you're exercising, alternate between water and high-energy sports drinks.

Avoid Excess Sugar

Sugar is as bad for good nutrition as water is good. Yes, the human body does need some sugar to function properly, but most of us consume far more than we really should. Unfortunately, you have to be careful about sugar even with fitness nutrition products. That means you need to read labels and pay attention to ingredients. Avoid as much sugar as you can while you're trying to get back on track.

Develop a Balanced Diet

The unhealthy eating of the festive season can easily throw off the delicate balance the body tries to maintain. One of the best ways to get that balance back is to develop a balanced diet. A balanced diet consists of a healthy supply of fruits, vegetables, dairy products, lean meats, and fish.

When you're snacking, stick with healthy fresh foods and packaged foods that are specifically designed to help you meet your fitness nutrition goals. Stay away from processed foods as much as you can.

Get to the Gym

Lastly, there is no substitute for regular exercise. Now is the time to start getting over to the gym to work off those extra pounds. While you're there, take a look around to see if there are any Nutrivend fitness nutrition vending machines. Be sure to ask the gym operator if you don't see any.
