The “OMG I ate how much Easter chocolate?!?” recovery guide

Wednesday 8 April 2015

It was Easter. Of course we all ate chocolate.

It's the only time of year that it's OK to gorge on bad stuff. (Oh and Christmas. And maybe your birthday – if you choose to share your cake that is...)

Some people have a gift called will power. Good for them. For others, Easter is a free pass.

So honestly now, how much of the rich, silky, melt-in-your-mouth goodness did you feast on? 

Was it a little, or A LOT? Were you one of the sensible ones? Or does the mere thought of Cadburys now make your stomach churn?

Whichever the case, we’re here to help put a little perspective on your Easter chocolate intake…

No we're not going to tell you to bang out 2000 burpees. Instead, we’ve lined up some realistic ways to help you on your rocky road (focus, focus!) to Easter recovery.

So depending on which category you fall into – from the “phew, my will power won out” to the “FML, check me in to chocolate rehab now” – find out how you can work off your Easter indulgences in no time.
