LONDON, November 11 /PRNewswire/ -- It's official, everyone is getting ready for the Christmas Party Season. Research published this week from British Lion Eggs stated that 6 out of 10 women will be slimming down to fit into those LBDs from now until December in order to look their very shimmering best! have the perfect way to help you lose those last pounds, and still ensure you're on tip top form. Here's the secret, to maximise the deficit between the amount of energy you consume and the amount you burn, we suggest that you cut 350 calories per day.

Shaving off 350 calories from your daily diet is enough to make a sufficient difference - and still give you the energy to complete any workouts. So, how can you do it? Well, here are our top tips to cut the calories before Christmas:

- You might think the best way to zap 350 calories from your daily diet is simply to skip a meal. Wrong. Your body actually burns up calories in digesting food, so the fewer meals you eat, the less of a chance it has to do that. Space out your meals during the day. - Downsize your portions by approximately a fifth on everything except fruit and vegetables! - Eat mindfully - over the next fortnight, you can't afford to 'waste'calories by eating mindlessly from the fridge, or straight from the saucepan. - Make sure you sit down and eat your meal, and focus on meal times, not snack times. - Don't scrimp on protein at lunchtime - eat a portion of protein equal to the amount of carbohydrate you eat - to help avoid an energy slump in the afternoon. - Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper to fit in with the body's natural rhythm in metabolism, which is primed in the morning and tails off during the day. - Go easy on the Mochas - flavoured lattes and hot chocolates - stick to plain Americanos and herbal teas. - Watch the booze. If you regularly drink your maximum recommended units (21 per week for women) then you are taking in over 1,000 extra calories. Just one 440ml can of larger will weigh in at 260 calories, so opt for some soft (non-sugary) drinks instead, or just plain water for the next two weeks (it's only for two weeks.)
