​Stay in control of calories at Christmas

Christmas is undoubtedly the time of year when it is most difficult to control the amount of calories you consume.

Chances are that we’ve all been guilty of overindulging at times by eating and drinking excessively. This can undo all of the great work of the previous 12 months and means that you have to work twice as hard in the gym to burn off those extra calories.

Taking a sensible, informed approach to monitoring your calorie intake over the festive season can help you avoid piling on the pounds.

Developing a better understanding of how your body works doesn’t mean that you’ll have to completely avoid that tasty turkey with all the trimmings or miss out on those delicious sweets and treats.

Instead, you’ll know how your body will be affected by what you eat and, if necessary, what you need to do to ensure that you are able to maintain your current weight.

Our range of body fat and body composition monitors provides in-depth analysis of your overall weight and health. The measurements taken include body fat percentage, muscle thickness as well as your basal and resting metabolic rate.
