The next few weeks means plenty of indulgence, with Christmas and New Year's parties adding to a year already dominated by lazing away those lockdown afternoons.

Health and wellbeing expert Erin O'Hara joined Francesca Rudkin to share her tips on staying healthy this year:

  1. Don't skip meals to save calories or make yourself extra hungry for Christmas dinner
  2. Eat until you are satisfied and not stuffed!
  3. Visit people and not food
  4. Contribute a healthy dish to keep the balance between healthy & unhealthy foods
  5. Choose drinks wisely and limit alcohol intake. Balance a sugar / alcoholic drink with a glass of water as every second drink
  6. Enjoy holiday treat foods and take the time to enjoy the taste
  7. Don't feel guilty if you overindulge
  8. Say no to food / alcohol pushers
