Foods with choline can help during the festive period
Protein can aid your speed, as well as your recovery
UNLESS YOU HAPPEN to be a reindeer, you’re unlikely to emerge from the Christmas period fitter than when it started. However, according to research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, eating foods high in choline, such as pork, beef liver, salmon and eggs can help protect your liver from the kicking many of us tend to give it during the festive period. Drinking too much alcohol can lead to a buildup of fat in the liver, which, in turn, can lead to liver damage and/or diabetes. The nutrient choline, meanwhile, keeps your liver lean. One of its key roles is to transport fat from the liver to other areas of your body, where it can be put to better use.
