Summer is the most social season of the year. The days are longer, which means more time for barbecues, social gatherings and weekends of entertaining — not to mention the Christmas party season. The average Australian gains 3-4kg over this period. However, you may feel relieved to know that adapting these eight habits can help prevent this from occurring. 

  • Plan ahead: When going to a restaurant, download the menu and choose your meal before the event. This will help you stick to your healthy choice rather than feeling overwhelmed by unhealthy choices when you’re hungry.

  • Offer to bring a plate: Bring along a healthy platter loaded with non-starchy vegetables like celery, carrots, cucumber and capsicum, along with a salsa dip or homemade tzatziki.

  • Avoid going to events hungry: Have a healthy snack or small meal before the event. This will help you avoid overeating and being tempted by party foods.

  • Hydrate: This will help you avoid feeling hungry by sipping on water throughout the event.

  • Alcohol: If you choose to drink, limit your intake and choose low kilojoule drinks. Consider halving your alcoholic portion and alternating your alcoholic beverages with water.

  • Keep yourself busy: Take a moment to appreciate the company you are with rather than focusing on the food.

  • Stay active: Combine your event with a game of basketball, cricket or lawn bowls, have a dance or help with the catering and cleaning up.

  • Allow yourself to enjoy an offer if you want to: Remember, your event is just one event and is not going to sabotage all the good choices you make around the event or in the lead-up to the event.
