As spring approaches, there has never been a better time to start thinking about making small changes for a healthier you.
Despite the meals, wine and chocolate we often associate with Valentine’s Day, it’s actually really easy to make some small, simple swaps. Sarah Groom from the Reshape team has the following tips:
- If you are eating out with your loved one on Valentine’s Day, bear in mind that each small glass of wine contains around 120 calories. Cut the calories and add some diet soda to your toast
- If you are lucky enough to be taken out for a meal, remember that when potatoes are fried, the calories can triple. Try to opt for boiled potatoes where possible
- Each tablespoon of cream contains 30 calories, so ask for the cream on the side so you can just add a small amount
- Think about the presents you buy for your loved one. Avoid food based gifts and buy practical presents which tend to last much longer
- If you are given chocolates, just eat one or two and then give the rest away to avoid temptation
- If your dates involve the cinema or watching a film, it is easy to fall into the habit of buying sweets or popcorn. Have a healthy snack before you go out and save yourself the cash and calories.
