6 ways to party

Whether it’s a birthday gathering, a weekend barbecue, or one of those celebrations that needs no excuse, everyone loves a party! But for those of us trying to watch what we eat, you can end up spending more time worrying about the snacks than having a good time. Here’s 6 ways you can keep the kilos off and still have fun!

1.Phone a friend: 
Ask a friend to get on board! It’s much resist all those chips, dips and nibbles when you have somebody else on the journey with you.

2. Swap out sugar: 
All those treats add up and sugar is a huge source of calories! Fear not – you don’t have to skip dessert. Opting for natural sugar alternatives like Natvia natural sweetener instead of sugar in cooking, baking and even your daily cuppa can drastically cut down on your sugar intake and yup, you guessed it – cut down on the calories! If you need inspiration for sugar-free treats, check out – seriously there are over 1000 tasty recipes! Now, who wants cake?!

3. BYO
: Bring along a healthier option to gatherings such as homemade dips with vegetable dippers, or a sugar free dessert. That way you know there’ll be a delicious and healthy option available. You might even be able to convince everyone else at the party to ditch the unhealthy snacks along with you!

4. Sweet dreams: 
Too many late nights start to take their toll, and not only on your energy levels. Those who get a good night’s sleep regularly are more likely to lose weight and stay healthier. Make sure you set aside a few early nights a week.

5. Stay hydrated: 
And not just with alcohol! When the sparkling’s flowing it can be difficult to remember to drink water. Alternate alcoholic beverages with a glass of water to keep calories (and hangovers!) down.

6. Plan ahead: 
Before heading out to drinks and nibbles, have a snack so you don’t arrive hungry and immediately eat half the buffet. High-protein snacks like yoghurt are particularly good. If you’re there for a meal, fill up on veggies and leaner meats first. You’ll have less room left over for unhealthy options.
