How much have you put on over Christmas?!

How much have you put on over Christmas?!  

Christmas Weight gain

So the festivities are almost over, the christmas tree will soon be packed away for another year and you will  be trying to get through all the chocolate, biscuits and treats that were either bought or received as gifts

And then its ‘New Year resolution’ time; get fit, get slimmer, get active, get alcohol free?! Why do we make these kinds of resolutions in January?  Well, maybe my game of festive bingo may provide some clues!

Have a look at the bingo card below see how many items you consumed over the last few weeks, then count up the calories.  Shocked?!




In true bingo style lets see if you got

  • The four corners; 870 calories in total
  • a line across; 950 calories in total
  • a line down ; 1,120 calories in total
  • a diagonal line ; 1,170 calories in total
  • A FULL HOUSE is 4,360 calories in total


You could consume 3,289 calories from your Christmas day dinner alone.  And maybe after completing the festive bingo card you can see where those calories have come from. And that’s before we add in the calories consumed or drunk on New Years Eve and day.

How healthy are you?

Do any of these apply to you?

  • Can’t seem to shift those extra pounds like you use to
  • Is your concentration a bit hit and miss
  • Do you have a niggle that won’t go away,
  • Regularly get the sniffles or feel rundown
  • Are you feeling less energetic and more tired
  • You drop off to sleep but then you’re wide awake at 3 in the morning
  • More and more food seems to upset you
  • You’re peri or menopausal
  • Is your diet out of control
  • You just can’t be bothered!

Many of those things can be attributed to or helped by the food we eat and the lifestyle choices we make.  As a nutrition coach I can help you redress the balance, get you back in control and in the driving seat. I look at the foods you eat or don’t eat and your lifestyle and ask you to make small but permanent changes for longterm benefit

Certain foods are great for improving your iron levels, reducing cholesterol, balancing blood sugar, controlling cravings, improving mood, hot flushes, stress and many, many more. But some issues need a diagnosis to know what we are dealing with and what your baseline is.



And that’s where my new partnership with Medichecks comes in. Let me introduce you to them…….  

Established in 2002, Medichecks established the UK’s first direct to consumer blood test and health check service and are now the UK’s leading online blood test company. With over 1200 tests available from single markers like vitamin D to full health profiles looking at hormones, organ function and nutritional health, we have a test to suit everyone.

Simply order online, receive your test kit in the post, take your sample at home or visit one of our partner clinics and a few days later receive your results in your own secure, personalised dashboard with doctor’s comments included.

Medichecks offers a simple, affordable and convenient way to track your health over time.

Sounds good doesn’t it.  

Now I know many of the tests Medichecks carry out can be done free of charge by your GP, and that is still where I signpost my clients to in the first instance.  But for many the wait is too long and some tests are refused.  That’s where Medichecks and I come in.  I have a very handy discount code that allows the recipient to receive 20% off the price of a test or series of tests.  For instance a vitamin B12 check (low levels are the major cause of fatigue) costs £39, with my discount that reduces to £31.20.

Here is a word from Amy, Medichecks Business Account Manager

me and medichecks

If you were my client, I can then work though your Medichecks data with you and together we can start to make changes to your diet and lifestyle.  I can help with recipe ideas, healthy swaps and nutritional support and guidance.  I also deliver vegan cookery classes, so you may decide that learning some new recipes and making changes to your diet (based on the data supplied by Medichecks) could be beneficial.

Contact me for further details or contact Medichecks direct (03450 600600) to assess what tests would benefit you the most.
