Diet and Fitness Monthly





We're getting all festive in this month's DFM. You can have a bit of fun with Becca's Christmas Food Quiz, get moving with Laura's Party Games and get tipsy with Jon's Drinks Test. Meanwhile Julie's got some Stocking Filler suggestions, Helen tells you how to be a Christmas Cracker and Juliette gives her Anti-Bloating Advice. Plus, just in case you get fed up with turkey, Tracey's got 3 luxurious new recipes.


Party Food Quiz

So how many calories are there really in a handful of peanuts? Test your knowledge with Becca's Festive Food Quiz.


Party Games

Try Laura's 3 great twists on classic party games to get your party moving after Christmas lunch.


Tip of the Eisberg

Jon and the taste team pulled some pretty wicked faces during this month's test comparing diet versions of popular alcoholic drinks to the real thing.


Be a Christmas Cracker

WLR's Helen has seven tips to make you Belle of the Christmas Ball without the aid of a fairy Godmother.


The Magic of Celery

Eating this crispy veg has major health benefits and it's so low in calories it (almost) doesn't count. Tracey shares her 3 luxurious recipes: Stuffatina Alla Romana, Carrot, Celery and Onion Ragout and Chicken Waldorf, and Pat explains why it's a Heart-Friendly Veg.


Don't Bloat

WLR's dietitian Juliette Kellow explains bloating causes and cures, looks at whether high protein controls appetite, and gives her advice on Eating Out without blowing out, Eating Before Exercise, and coping with an underactive thyroid.


Stocking Fillers

We're not sure if Julie's started on the mulled wine early, but apparently she still believes in Santa. So, here's her stocking list for Santa on a budget. Yes, she's not asked for anything over 15 and if you use our special promotion code SFPF04342 you can get your stocking fillers post-free to anywhere in the UK or Europe. Valid until 15th December 2004.


Inspiration for the New Year

Daniela says "life is too short so build in treats..." and Laura advises "don't beat yourself up over a bad day". They've lost over 7 stone between them, read their inspiring stories.


Have a great month,
