How to Stick to your Vitality-Boosting Diet this Festive Season

Looking to maintain your vitality over the holidays? You’re in the right place.   

Maintaining a vitality-boosting diet this festive season may be easier said than done.

The upcoming holiday season might fill you with dread, as family parties, indulgent treats at home, and various other social gatherings come your way to throw you off track.

All those extra calories – alongside less activity and more lounging around – could have a huge impact on your body targets and motivation levels.

Don’t worry, here at PrimeMale, we’ve put together the best tips to help you maintain that healthy, vitality-boosting diet and your fitter frame – even through obstacles like the holiday season.

Maintaining a healthy, stamina-boosting lifestyle during the festive season takes hard work, but with the right strategy in place, you can stick to it, continue making gains through 2022 and be more successful in the long run.

Here is how you can maintain that vitality-boosting diet this festive season and stay on track.

1. Eat Protein-Rich Foods

Just because it’s the holiday season doesn’t mean you need to stop eating all the right nutritional foods. You can enjoy nutritious, protein-packed meals alongside all the treats, so that you’re not undoing all your good work. Eating at a restaurant can be tough too, since you’re more inclined to eat more (and eat less healthy meals) than you would at home.

You could offset this by deciding what you’re going to have in advance. Pick the meal that offers more protein, fiber and vitamins, to keep your strength and vitality high. And if you want a dessert? Try sharing it with others or opting for coffee.

2. Maintain your Activity Levels

We all know Christmas is a time for indulging and relaxation, but it’s important to keep your fitness goals in mind if you’re looking to stay in peak physical condition and maintain that good mood.

It’s okay to have a day or two where you can lounge around but try not to get into the habit of sitting at home doing nothing. Try to maintain your activity levels, whether that be a winter walk or a more relaxed workout schedule.

It’s important to remain physically active during the holidays so it’s less of a struggle when they’re over!

3. Make Some Food Swaps

It might be hard to resist all the tempting processed and high fat-foods around the house during the festive season. But you can control that by making some healthy food swaps. 

As you’re already aware, nutrition choices you make can have a massive impact on your vitality and mood and your body goals. These Christmas food swaps will help indulge your taste buds, support your healthy habits and keep energy levels strong Luckily.

Here are some examples. Swap:

– Chips and salted nuts for unsalted nuts/popcorn

– Crackers and dip for vegetable sticks and hummus

– White or milk chocolate for dark chocolate

– Apple pie for baked apples

– Full-fat cheese for part-skim, protein-dense options like ricotta

If you’re on the move a lot during the holidays, try to avoid grabbing something quick and unhealthy. Carry high-protein substitute snacks around to help keep your muscles fed, curb cravings and reduce your appetite for junk foods[1].

4. Watch your Alcohol Intake

It’s hard to say no to alcohol in the run-up to Christmas and new year celebrations. If you’re planning to drink alcohol during the festive season, it’s important not to let your guard down, especially since alcohol contains relatively empty calories – and won’t do any favors for your fitness regime and vitality levels.

Alcohol can reduce your inhibitions, which may also lead you to consuming more calories from food too – and not healthy calories.

Try and minimize your consumption to support your mood and energy levels. If you must have a drink, choose healthier alternatives that are lower in calories. Choosing drinks like a gin and tonic, vodka lime sodas, a light beer, or some variation of drinks like these can reduce the calories you consume from drinking at social gatherings.

5. Focus on Being Consistent

Sticking to your vitality-boosting diet and training regime isn’t all about being perfect and making no slip-ups along the way. The holidays are only a short period over an entire year, and it shouldn’t affect your progress too much.

Research shows that the amount of self-control we have is restricted[2]. Exhausting it through being too strict with your diet or exercising too hard could make you overdo it when further challenges come up.  

To boost stamina and build muscle, you’ll need to make long-term changes and stay consistent. It’s all about what you’ll stick with week after week.

The Bottom Line

It’s easy to get swept up in the holiday cheer and overdo it – but when you’re trying to maintain vitality and boost your overall performance, it is key to be mindful of your food choices. If you follow these top tips, you can maintain your vitality-boosting diet this festive season and stay on track with your physique goals.

If you look to keep things relatively balanced (and high in protein or vitamins) and try to stay aware of the nutrition choices you’re making  – and check they are mostly in line with your goals – then you can navigate the festive holidays with ease.

You can enjoy the holiday season without compromising on your physique or your cognitive health and maybe even get ahead by remaining consistent – it’s all about balance.
