1. Pick the Right Portion

Amidst the allure of tempting delicacies, listen to your body's needs and stop eating when you're satisfied. Prioritise vegetables, fruits, and lean, high-protein options. Adopt a deliberate pace while chewing to facilitate digestion and nutrient absorption, amplifying the sense of fullness. Enhance your commitment to a well-balanced diet by utilising Blua Health's "Eat green" feature, tracking your daily consumption of fruits and vegetables.


2. Choose Snacks Wisely

Avoid high-calorie, high-sugar, or high-salt snacks like chips, candies, and chocolates. Opt for low-sugar, low-salt, high-fibre alternatives like dried fruits and nuts. They not only satisfy your taste buds but also help control overall calorie intake.


3. Cook Your Own Meals

If you plan to prepare your own food, consider using healthier ingredients such as whole grains instead of refined grains, low-fat dairy products, and natural sweeteners. This not only results in delicious dishes but also reduces saturated fats and sugars, making your meals healthier.


4. Limit Alcohol Intake

Alcoholic beverages are high in calories and can stimulate appetite, impair your judgment and increase the risk of overeating. If you choose to drink, choose a smaller-sized glass and wait until you finish one before refilling. If possible, consider alternatives like water, non-alcoholic mocktails, sugar-free sodas, or juices.


Remember these 4 tips for healthy eating, complemented by Blua Health's health reminders, to foster good dietary habits even during festive times!
