Stockings for the kids, stacking for you?

If you are hoping to get through Christmas without having to move permanently into that outsize reindeer sweater your well-meaning relative is giving you, you might wish to consider doing The Stacking Plan. I guided two volunteers through my healthy eating plan last Christmas, and they both declared they felt a lot better by the time January came than they normally would. Not only that, but they both lost weight, yet enjoyed Christmas as much as ever.

It might seem crazy to embark on a healthy-eating plan at this time of year, but that’s the whole aim of The Stacking Plan – it’s not about giving things up, it’s about taking things on.

Each week, you add a good new habit to your existing regime, and you don’t have to think about taking things away. By the end, you have stacked on the ten good habits you need to be eating a basic optimum diet, without going hungry or feeling deprived.

And if one too many alcohol-fuelled parties or a mass invasion of mince pies happens during this time, it doesn’t matter. You will know how to get back on track and give your system a few of the things it does want to stop it from being all ‘bah humbug!’ when you are trying to enjoy yourself. Of course, if you don’t want to do the Plan now, you can always put the book on your Christmas list and start in January, to get 2016 off on the right foot.

Remember, not all festive fare needs to be bad for you anyway. The Health Hub is the perfect place to experience a bit of Yuletide stacking, since the café will be serving nutritious-yet-delicious food and drink over the coming weeks. A visit to the Hub is just the ticket for those who want to treat both their taste buds AND their digestive systems to a gift they’ll really appreciate. More than you ever did that reindeer sweater.

You can pick up a copy of The Stacking Plan at the Health Hub or order it here:
