Holiday indulgence without the carb loading – a Merry Atkins Low-Carb Christmas

Enjoy the season of festive feasting with Atkins


With the silly season officially upon us, the calendar is filled with festive holiday parties, dinners with friends & family, and endless rounds of drinks. In the centre of all this celebration, is food. Temptations appear at every corner, so Atkins has developed a range of low-carb festive recipes to keep you on the right track to weight wellness over the holiday season.


A simple rule of thumb in the Atkins low-carb lifestyle, is following a 90/10 eating rule during the holidays – that is 90% of food consumed being low-carb, with 10% wriggle room to indulge over the holidays. Eat until you're satisfied – not stuffed!


While it's easy to be tempted by carb-loaded canapes, heavy Christmas dinners, and sugar laden desserts, there are ways to indulge without throwing your healthy eating habits out of the window by consuming excess carbs and sugar.


Atkins' range of delicious and simple low-carb recipes will create a delectable celebratory spread the whole family will enjoy – without the next-day guilt. This year the Christmas table spotlight is on seafood, meats and all things fresh, making it the ideal time to go low-carb and avoid a festive blow out.


If you do over indulge don't beat yourself up about it - just bounce back from the occasional carb fest and get back on track. Squeeze in some extra exercise over the holiday period, even if it's taking the stairs, enjoying an early morning swim, or going for a brisk walk on the beach – embrace a healthy lifestyle and get out and soak up the Aussie sunshine!
