EURO 2016: Danger for the slim line

Has she also packed the EM fever? Do you regularly sit with friends on the TV and watch the games of their favorites? The problem is that sitting in front of the television hardly consumes any calories and the habit of eating calorie-rich foods such as chips in between is a real problem. For those who "only" drink a bottle of beer during the games, eat half a bag of potato chips and a meatball roll every day, can weigh three to four kilograms more after the European Championship, according to the Society for Nutritional Medicine and Dietetics.

Eat and drink healthily

In the now prevailing summer temperatures, the television viewers should drink plenty. In case of thirst unsweetened herbal tea, sweetener-sweetened light drinks or mineral water are well suited; if necessary, even a non-alcoholic beer. As a football snack, raw vegetables and fruits are ideal. Apples, grapes, bananas, oranges or peppers, tomatoes, radishes, cucumbers are healthy and beneficial to the slender line. Yogurt, fruit yoghurt or buttermilk are good thirst and hunger killers in between.

Instead of chips, nibble sunflower or pumpkin seeds. They provide iron and magnesium and are good for the stress of a football thriller. If you like it sweet, then just chew dry fruits: dates, figs, apple rings or prunes also provide plenty of minerals and trace elements. Eat slowly and chew with pleasure. Because the faster you eat, the bigger the amount consumed.

All this prevents weight gain and does not burden the metabolism. So you can experience the European Football Championship with pleasure and pleasure.
