Nuts: Roasted chestnuts are a great suggestion. And nuts too as long as not salted are a good snack.

If youve had a big lunch, whats a better alternative to a turkey sandwich supper?

Give your body time to rest and recover. What I find is that its not the meal itself that is usually the biggest problem, its the cravings it creates following the meal. So opt for a lighter meal. Maybe soup, scrambled eggs with spinach and avocado, or some smoked salmon, poached eggs and asparagus, which is enough to keep you satiated but not to trigger the cravings at the next meal.

Lastly, if you fall off the diet wagon over the festive period, knowing that you can climb back on it is the most important thing. Dont beat yourself up and find the balance between indulging and overindulging. To get back on track, I would suggest:

1. Set fresh goals for 2020

2. Clean out the pantry

3. Get on top of your social calendar

4.Adopt a Mediterranean style of eating
