Although we Spaniards usually take between two and four kilos on these dates, it is possible to eat well and everything and not gain anything. We tell you how (it's very simple)
Christmas and getting fat shouldn't be related. Although the Spanish Society of Endocrinology and Nutrition (SEEN) warns that during these dates we Spaniards usually gain between two and four kilos due to an excessive consumption of calories, there are tricks to avoid this increase in numbers on the scale.
There are different tricks that we do not usually apply and in the end we have what we harvested: a few extra kilos in January that make the jeans not fasten us and that we drag them until Easter.
For this reason, reader, it is very important that you record what we are going to tell you next by fire and that you apply it at every Christmas meal, dinner, meeting or various sarao. Attentive:
1) A day is NOT a day
If you sit at the table with the mentality of "well, a day is a day" or "once a year does not hurt" you will ingest uncontrollably during lunch or dinner. Worst? That will whet your appetite and you will end this lazy dynamic from Christmas Eve to Three Kings Day. The roscón will save you from closing the cycle, but it will already be too late because you will already have the fat impregnated in the body.
Ideally, you sit at the table being aware of each food or substitute that you put in your mouth. You don't have to stress or deprive yourself too much, but you do have to have some control.
2) Eat everything, but little
In addition to being aware and not getting carried away by the Christmas caloric euphoria, his thing is to eat everything but little. That is, you do not have to constrain yourself. The other way around, since if you feel like you can't eat up to a limit, you will get anxiety and you will end up eating more. It is about taking a little here and a little there, avoiding carbohydrates above all.
3) Say yes to fish or meat
Lamb, fish or seafood is usually served on these dates, and you do well to eat it. Proteins, as we have always told you, are good because they fill you up and speed up your metabolism. Be careful, watch the portions: it is not the same to eat a whole lamb than a shoulder.
4) To drink: water or wine
The family reunions are being better with alcohol in the body. Although wine does not have many calories (each glass is about 75 kcal), it does whet our appetite and makes us eat more (in addition, all of us here know that when you already have a few glasses of wine, you should eat something). Therefore, reader, it is good that if you want to drink, you have a couple of glasses, although the best, without a doubt, is to drink water, as you well know.

5) How to eat sweets without getting fat
We already told you in Vozpópuli which were the Christmas sweets that have the most calories, and we gave you a trick to be able to eat them without getting fat: choose only one a day.
In addition to this advice, there is another tremendously valuable - a separate modest - and it is none other than saving the sweet you want to eat for breakfast. Yes, the calories will be the same, but if you eat it in the morning you will have a much greater chance of burning it (and therefore not turning it into fat) when the day is over.
At dinners, say no to the candy tray.
6) Beware of canapes
The canapés are the devil of diets. They seem harmless. There, so small and cute, but they are a time bomb. Especially because they are usually loaded with carbohydrates: puff pastry bases, sauces, fried ...
Choose only those that you see more 'clean' and natural. That is, those who clearly know what they are and, more or less, what they are made of and how they are prepared.
Be careful, it is not that you do not eat any, but that, once again, you choose well. Those with seafood, meat or fish are the best option. Avoid cold cuts, as it has a lot of fat. The fried and sweet ones are better not.
7) Make up before and after
In the balance is the trick. If you know that on the 25th you are going to get fine Filipino, try on the 26th having a green salad and a light dinner. And the same happens with the days preceding the feasts or Christmas dinners. It is not a matter of walking these days with the calorimeter on, but being aware that in the end we will gain one kilo if we have 7,000 more kcal accumulated in the body.
It is drawer: if you usually eat 2,000 calories and on day 'X' you have gotten 5,000, the following days try to eat 1,300 and that's it.

8) take a walk
In addition to running away from your brother-in-law, if you go for a walk before and after meals you will speed up your metabolism. Walking at a slow pace of 1.5 km / hour consumes about 100 calories. That is to say, almost a whole polvorón.
The more you move, the more calories you’ll burn and the less you'll have to regret later
