Kick start your New Year diet on the golf course!

Still counting the calories consumed from an overindulgent Christmas? Cutting out the golf course snacks as part of a New Year diet isn't the answer, as Christina Smith, director of explains...

After a very over indulgent Christmas, like many, I vowed to stick to my New Year's resolutions of losing weight, exercising more, reading the full works of William Shakespeare, having a tidy and clean house at all times and generally being more virtuous all round! Of course by now, many of us can relate to the reality of life that these resolutions have already fallen by the wayside, even if the intention and desire for them has not.

Well golf can at least help achieve the first two and most important, especially if you are really good and carry your own clubs! Every game of golf you can burn around calories 800-1000 calories which is great news!

It is important however, to replace this burnt energy used through your game. Studies show that if you don't eat the first thing your body will run out of is glucose, aka blood sugar, which is the energy your body needs to use for everything. When your blood sugar levels are low, you feel tired and may have a harder time concentrating. Blood sugar levels start to fall within a few hours of your stomach being empty. The lack of protein impacts your muscles which is especially vital when you are trying to swing a golf club. Not keeping your energy up through your game can therefore really have a surprising impact on your game.

This can easily be overcome by taking a snack with you on the course such as fruit and energy bar. With the new snack /lunch bag from Surprizeshop this has never been easier. With its carabineer and detachable strap it easily attaches to your golf bag or trolley. It is machine washable and folds flat after use and is just £7.99.

It is also vital to stay refreshed through your game and at this time of year it is also great to keep warm too. With their new vacuum flask with carabiner you can now carry your hot drink round the course with you. It is 350ml in size and has a handy pour through stopper. It comes in a choice of brushed steel and pink and easily attaches to your golf bag or trolley. They are £9.99 and are exclusively available from
