Last week all remaining legal restrictions for the pandemic were lifted, and life is slowly but surely returning to normal. Plans are being made, holidays are being booked, and our social calendars are filling up left right and centre.
However, normality may seem quite daunting after two years of lockdowns, restrictions and sitting at home on the sofa with no plans. According to a recent survey by Public Health England, 40% of adults in England gained weight during the pandemic. If this happened to you, it could be making a return to normal life rather worrying.
Not only can it hit your confidence, but it can also impact your health. While the country plans to live with Covid-19, it is important to minimise the risk of serious health problems if you catch the virus.
But you shouldn’t hide away forever. Here at Bodyline, we have compiled the tricks you can use to lose weight while still attending all your social events and making the most of normality! From parties to meals out, we can be here for you every step of the way to support you with motivation and guidance.
Firstly, make sure to get in touch for an initial consultation and start your medical weight loss journey. Our team are ready to take your call on 0800 995 60336, or you can fill in an online contact form! Whether you’re looking to lose a little or a lot of weight, we’d love to hear from you. We are here to offer clinical advice as life resumes!
Night out at the pub?
We all love a night out! A drink, a boogie and often a naughty kebab at the end of it all. But it’s so easy to stick to a diet and still have a great night! Swap your pint of lager for a gin and slim line tonic, or your glass of wine for a glass of prosecco. But remember – don’t overconsume, as alcohol is very calorie dense. Don’t forget to make sure you have healthy delicious snacks waiting for you when you get home, stock up on low calorie crisps and snack bars to treat yourself to before bed!
A candle-lit dinner?
It’s so exciting trying new restaurants when having a date night or a meal out with the family, friends or colleagues! However, restaurant meals often have hidden calories, and it can be hard to stick to the diet. Why not try having a starter for your main with a side of salad. The smaller portion will allow you to restrict your calories while still enjoying a lovely meal out.
We love a big celebration for a birthday, especially when a lot of us couldn’t celebrate properly over the pandemic. When drinking, again choose the low-calorie options. At birthday parties, however, it’s usually the cake and the buffet that’s most tricky to navigate. Make sure your hands are full so you can’t pick at the nibbles around the room. It can also help to eat a protein rich meal prior to events like these, so you don’t pick too much! But of course, help yourself to one small slice of cake – life is for living, and we don’t expect you to miss out.
It’s always good to plan ahead for events like these, especially if you worry you look quite different from the last time you saw your family. But confidence is key! Take the first step by joining Bodyline today, and let them know the guaranteed results you are seeing and will see. Choose an outfit you feel great in, pick healthy food and drink, and most importantly – have a great time!
Catching a flight?
Whether you’re heading to the sun, the sea and the sand, or a lovely city break, you can still reach your medical weight loss goals while on holiday! Start your days with a high protein breakfast, maybe scrambled eggs and smoked salmon? Be sure to stay hydrated and drink water throughout the day – this will help with hot weather and curb hunger between meals.
