Don’t crash diet after the Christmas binge
If you succumbed to over-eating this
Christmas don’t fall for the crash diet solution
in the New Year, Southern NSW Local Health
District is warning the community.
Director of Public Health, Tracey Oakman,
said it was easy to fall into the trap of over-
indulging during the Christmas period, and to
then worry about weight gain.
“Often people turn to crash diets as a ‘fix it’
measure to lose weight quickly,” Mrs Oakman
“Research shows that crash diets achieve
little in long-term weight loss. The short-term
success is usually due to loss of water and
muscle mass, and many crash diets do not
provide adequate nutrients and are bad for a
person’s long-term health.”
Crash diets may also cause fatigue and
“The good news is that small changes
can make a big difference. Start with small
manageable steps to make healthy food
choices and begin a regular exercise program
which is fun and can be easily slotted into
your daily schedule.
“Some easy changes are to choose smaller
portions, select healthier take away choices
by using the kilojoule information on menu
boards, carry a piece of fruit with you as a
handy snack, fill your plate with vegetables at
dinner and make water your drink of choice.
Fruit and vegetables are beneficial to long-
term health, particularly to reduce the risk of
chronic disease such as cancer.”
Mrs Oakman said people should try to be
active every day.
“Just 30-60 minutes of moderate exercise
on most days of the week improves your
heart health and helps with weight control.
This can include walking, swimming, dancing,
gardening or playing golf and will increase
your heart rate but not necessarily make you
short of breath.”
Mrs Oakman noted there are many
misconceptions about regular exercise, the
most notable being was that it
must be strenuous to reap any
“It is far more important that
you do something you find
“This means you’re more
likely to make exercise part of your life rather
than let it dwindle away.”
Those unable to fit 30 minute sessions into
their lifestyle could still gain health benefits
from periods of activity as brief as 10 minutes,
providing they added up to 30 minutes in total
on most days.
“Even small things like taking the stairs
instead of the lift or walking to the corner
shop instead of driving can help make you
“Besides helping to keep your weight at a
healthy level, regular exercise and healthy
eating plan offer a range of benefits including
lower stress levels, better concentration, and
“As an extra bonus you’ll have higher
energy levels, giving you an added boost to
enjoy more in life.”
