What’s the best fitness tip I can offer for the Christmas period? If you were to think about nothing else related to your diet or training across December. Something hat would make you feel better.
Staying hydrated all year is important but as December festivities commence we often drink more alcohol, more Christmas Coffees and as a result end up drinking less water.
Yet because of the increase in alcohol very often more water is exactly what we need.
So if your training goes out the window.
If everything you eat is Christmas food related.
Still try and drink plenty of water each day.
It will make you feel better if you have a hangover, be it foor or alcohol related.
How much water – aim for around your weight in kg x 0.033.
So if you weigh 80kg that’s 80x 0.033 = 2.64 litre. So between 2.5-3 litres a day.
If you exercise for an hour try and an extra 0.5 litre. If you’re hungover maybe try and increase a bit too.
1 pint glass of water is about 0.5 litre.
Keep things simple whilst your busy over Christmas and aim for small wins.
