  • It's FRIDAY PEOPLE! I sure love a good weekend treat like the next person but are your weekends treats ruining your diet? The best diet intentions come unstuck on weekends for a number of reasons. Weekends often lack structure, which affects meal times, while more socialising means more food, which means more kilojoules. THE WEEKEND RULES 1. Drop the snacks. Weekends mean fast food, eating out, celebrations - larger portions, more alcohol and more treats. You don't need snacks when your meals are larger and more energy-dense. 2. Take control of bingeing. Do you really need the extra slice of toast, that pile of fries next to your burger or a giant serve of cake? During celebrations and special events, focus on tasting your favourite foods, but not bingeing on them. 3. Practise active socialising. The weekend is an opportunity to do more, not less. Combine socialising with activity by scheduling friendly catch-ups over a walk or bike ride, join a team or group training session, or plan family activities such as bush walks. When we balance kilojoule intake with kilojoule output, we are able to enjoy treats and extras without worrying so much about our weight, and this applies equally to adults and children. 4. Go light on Sunday night. Forget waiting until Monday to restart your healthy diet for the week ahead. Instead, commit to light meals on Sunday night to help balance out the sins of the weekend. Soup, salad or grilled fish or prawns are all low-kilojoule choices that are appetising, but also put you on track for getting into your regular and healthy weekday routine Information from:Susie Burrell http://www.dailylife.com.au/health-and-fitness/dl-nutrition/stick-to-healthy-eating-all-week-then-blow-it-at-the-weekend-20140913-3fdot.html

  • Everyone stay safe in this wild weather. Remember if you haven't had any power and it continues overnight, don't take risks with the food (particularly (milk, raw meats etc) in your fridge in case it has been spoiled with the outage. Chuck it out to be safe.
