Over indulgence and weight gain is an accepted part of Christmas for most people with the new year bringing resolutions of fitness and weight loss to the forefront once again.
General overeating is of course a significant factor in the increased calorie intake during the festive period; however, the majority of food and drinks consumed are high in calories with negligible nutritional benefit. This consumption, alongside limited bodily exertion and exercise, results in significant and rapid weight gain. Using supplements during this period so that the body still receives its required nutritional content is essential.
Although many of these traditional elements would be difficult to sacrifice, a number of products can be indulged in moderation not only to not avoid them but to limit the effect of the high calories they contain.
