Life hacks from a nutritionist: how not to dial in the New Year?
Most often, the New Year's feast becomes a real challenge for those who monitor weight. Fatty meals, salads dressed with mayonnaise, alcoholic beverages - all this is unlikely to benefit the figure. But don't be upset: there is a way out! Together with Anna Berseneva , a nutritionist and nutritionist, we have compiled a whole list of life hacks that will allow you not to drive yourself into a rigid framework at the festive table and enjoy excellent health and reflection in the mirror the next morning.
Replace fatty sauces with healthy ones
The first rule is to pay attention to sauces. It is in them that the main dangers lie! Sugar, syrup, artificial flavors and colors - all this and not only we will find in the sauces that flaunt on supermarket shelves. What is the way out of this situation? Prepare healthy sauces, with which the salads will become even tastier and will not turn into extra centimeters in the waist and a feeling of heaviness. Yes, it will take time, but the guests will definitely be impressed, and the body will definitely thank you for the right decision.

What and how to drink for the New Year so as not to gain weight?
Why you should give up strong alcohol in favor of champagne.
When to drink water: before, after or during meals?
Here's how to balance your drinking and why it's important.
Eat a handful of berries
This should be done about half an hour before your gala dinner. The best options for such an aperitif are raspberries and currants. These berries contain ellagic acid, which speeds up all metabolic processes in the body.
Don't forget about fiber
Start your dinner with a salad of green leaves: spinach, arugula, corn, iceberg or kale work well. Season a light dish with olive oil and lemon juice. You can add unrefined apple cider vinegar. This will create the right fiber pillow for your upcoming feast.
And, most importantly, eat with pleasure and in great company!
