Merry Christmas – Remember Calories Don’t Count
You’ve worked hard all year being strict with your nutrition, trying to optimise your lifestyle and putting in the graft in the gym, that you have definitely earnt a couple of days off.
The philosophy “calories don’t count at Christmas” is something we like to use when it comes to Christmas and Boxing Day. However, this is dependant on whether you have had this same philosophy the whole year or not. Unfortunately, the calories obviously do count, but we like to say that you can eat and drink what you wish and just enjoy yourself for these two days. It isn’t as if you are going to undo all your hard work over just 48 hours and it isn’t as it one big Christmas dinner is going to put back on all the fat you’ve spent months to lose or lose all those gains you’ve made.
So go and enjoy yourself today and tomorrow guilt free. No one wants to be counting calories or be judged for what they eat every single day of the year. Just chill out, if you fancy eating it, then go for it.
The only rule is – Don’t make yourself eat and drink for the sake if it. Some extra calories won’t undo all your hard work, but a huge binge can cause mental and physical issues. So don’t attempt to eat everything in sight, just because it’s there.
Anyway, enough talking calories, as after all they don’t even count today! Now go and enjoy Christmas with your friends, family and loved ones.
Merry Christmas to you and your family from The Chase Perfection Team
