Personal trainer Brian Keane shares top tips for losing weight after Christmas – RSVP Live
The horror that was 2020 is finally over, but we’re facing into yet another lockdown – and the gyms are closing again.
If you’ve put on a few pounds over Christmas (who hasn’t?) and you’re looking at January as a chance to get back in shape, personal trainer Brian Keane has shared a few tips with us.
He says that when it comes to getting back on the wagon after the celebrations, you shouldn’t worry too much, but there are ways you can fast track your weight loss.
“If you did nothing but go back to your normal routine, your weight will go back to normal in about 10 days,” he said.
“However, if you want to speed it up, try adding some bodyweight HIIT workouts first thing in the morning.
“Combine this with increasing your water intake throughout the day and throw out the last few boxes of chocolates left in the house.
“Systems over willpower, if they’re in the house, you’ll be tempted to eat them.”
And if you’re worried about putting on more weight during the coming month, he has some advice.
“I recommend getting about 45-50 minutes of activity a day to help keep yourself healthy and stay sane.

“Activity doesn’t necessarily mean working out. It could be going for a walk or a cycle, or working at a standing desk if you’re working from home.
“Home workouts are great. I have 20 or 30 free workouts on my YouTube channel, which you can easily do in your house.”
When it comes to diet, he suggests sticking to a time restricted eating window.
“What I’m doing with a lot of my clients is, they will pick times and eat all of their meals within those times.
“So if they have their breakfast at 9am, they have their dinner by 5pm, with lunch or snacks in between.
“They don’t eat after 5pm because it’s just too easy to start binging when you’re watching Netflix or having a few more cups of tea and biscuits in the evening.”
