Beware of chocolate everywhere

WITH Easter comes everyone’s biggest temptation - chocolate.

It’s advertised everywhere you look, it bombards you at the supermarket checkout and before you realise, all you can think about is your next chocolate fix.

Jenny Craig ambassador Magda Szubanski fought through her own temptations when she shed a remarkable 25kg to reach her goal weight of 85kg.

Magda has never looked or felt better having maintained her goal weight for two years and she is determined to help Central Highlanders keep on track with her tips to avoid piling on extra kilos over this Easter celebration.

Magda’s top five tips to ensure Central Highlanders have an egg-cellent Easter:

Size does matter: Buy small individually wrapped eggs instead of the biggest egg you can find. Unwrapping each egg will help you to eat less in one sitting.

Quality over quantity: Have a small piece of good quality chocolate instead of a large amount of basic chocolate. Choose dark chocolate over milk chocolate.

Stay active by balancing food intake with exercise: Get outdoors and arrange a healthy Easter picnic at your local park. Even an Easter egg hunt is a great way to stay active.

Only buy what you need: Don’t eat with your eyes. We often tend to buy more eggs and bunnies and end up with too many in the pantry at home. Make a list of people to buy eggs for and don’t include yourself on the list.

Give alternative gifts: To avoid the temptation when purchasing presents for other people, remember to think Easter doesn’t have to be all about chocolate.
