Enjoy your night! 28 is the program that is designed to fit in with your lifestyle, and going out for dinner, celebrations and other events are a part of life. Stay mindful about your portions and make good choices most of the time, a night out is not going to sabotage your good work, so don’t feel guilty – enjoy your night! Here are some tips to help you stay on track
* Don’t arrive starving. Have a protein-rich snack before you go, such as two boiled eggs; 120g of ham or turkey; or hummus with vegetable sticks.
* Stick to only a couple of alcoholic drinks for the night, or at the very least space them out with glasses of sparkling water in between.
* Minimise carb-heavy foods like pasta, rice, potatoes and bread – these are very easy to overeat. Choose instead grilled / roasted fish or meats, and salads or vegetables.
* If you want dessert, share one with a friend and aim to have a few spoonfuls only. Trust me when I tell you the 10th spoonful is no more satisfying than the first! Savour those mouthfuls, you deserve them!
