BREAK OUT THE BUBBLY

Kim advises that Brut Nature is the driest Champagne you can get, followed by Extra Brut — the drier it is, the lower the sugar content

It’s a given that most of us will drink more alcohol on holiday than we usually do. Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you to stick to sparkling water, but I do advise setting yourself a drink deadline. For example, some of my clients decide they won’t have their first drink until 5pm.

Breaks abroad are special occasions, so why not celebrate with some Champagne or a crisp dry white wine? Any wine that’s classed as ‘dry’ has to have a maximum of five grams of sugar per litre, which means less than a teaspoon per bottle.

Brut Nature is the driest Champagne you can get, followed by Extra Brut — the drier it is, the lower the sugar content.

And if you’re a glugger, try this trick: order a glass of water and, if you’re right-handed, place the water on your right side and the alcohol on your left. It will slow down your drinking as you’ll naturally reach for your glass of water more often.

Kim says: ‘Sorbet is pure sugar. If you want ice cream then have the real thing, which will contain fat and some protein that will slow the release of the sugar…’

REFUSE NIBBLES TO AVOID SNACK ATTACK

When was the last time you ate one crisp? How about a single, salted peanut? One paltry pretzel? It doesn’t happen, does it?

If you’re staying in a smart hotel or visiting an upmarket bar, then you may well receive a tray of nibbles when you order a drink.

Once they’re there in front of you, chances are you’ll just mindlessly keep dipping into the salted snacks and won’t even register that you’re eating them.

So, do yourself a favour and ask your waiter to take the tray away.

On the other hand, if olives are on offer, help yourself! They’re high in good fats but don’t have the moreish factor of crisps or salted nuts, meaning you won’t eat dozens of them.

DAILY DELIGHT TO TREAT THE TASTEBUDS

No ONE wants to feel deprived on holiday but, equally, no one wants to return home a dress size larger.

Giving yourself a daily treat is something you may want to try. The simple act of choosing something and giving yourself permission to enjoy it will give you the opportunity to relish your treat without guilt.

Often when we have an unplanned treat it can lead to feelings of guilt followed by a ‘to hell with it’ attitude — and before you know it you’re eating too many of the wrong things with abandon.

Settle on something you’re going to love — savour every mouthful and stop eating as soon as you start to feel full. Avoid eating to the point where you’re ready to be rolled out of the restaurant.

MAKE FRIENDS WITH YOUR BARMAN

If sipping cocktails by the pool is your holiday plan, then befriending the barman is a good idea.

‘Mixologists love a challenge, and you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to enjoy a refreshing cocktail that isn’t loaded with sugar,’ Kim says

Some classic cocktails, such as pina colada, can contain more sugar and fat than a slice of chocolate cake. Instead, ask your bartender if he or she can make something without sugar, juice or syrup.

Once, my holiday hotel barman hollowed out a coconut, blended some of the flesh with coconut water and added a shot of Malibu and Bacardi. It was so delicious they added it to the menu.

TAKE CONTROL OF THE ALL-INCLUSIVE

If you’re heading off on an all-inclusive holiday or cruise, where food and drink are part of the package, then the temptation is to ‘get your money’s worth’ by eating and drinking everything in sight.

Rather than heading blindly to a restaurant, study the menu beforehand, choose what you’ll eat and stick to it. This will save you from feeling overwhelmed by choice.

Before having a snack or drink, pause for a moment to see if you’re really hungry or just eating out of habit. Mindless grazing is nowhere near as enjoyable as savouring food when your body needs it.

Kim says: ‘Don’t jump on the scales as soon as you return. Flying can cause us to retain water, meaning you may be carrying water weight rather than fat…’

Instead of thinking, ‘I’ve paid a premium, so I’m going to eat everything’, think, ‘I’ve paid a premium, so I’m going to ask the chef to make something just for me’.

Ordering off menu will make you feel like a VIP, and you’ll be able to eat something delicious and healthy — a steak and salad perhaps — made just for you.

DON’T BRING BAD HABITS HOME

The holiday is over — but don’t be tempted to stay in holiday mode. Often, we’ll arrive home to an empty fridge and order a take-away or carry on having wine with every meal.

Draw a line in the sand and settle on a day to get back to normal eating and drinking. If you arrive home on a Friday, end those holiday habits on Monday.

WAIT A WEEK BEFORE YOU WEIGH IN

Don’t jump on the scales as soon as you return. Flying can cause us to retain water, meaning you may be carrying water weight rather than fat. Many of us also suffer holiday constipation, often as a result of dehydration.

Instead, wait five to seven days for a more accurate reading.
