Sneaky holiday calories are everywhere this time of year. If you took the time to count all those "tiny tastes" each day, you would be surprised at how quickly they can sabotage your weight-maintenance efforts.
A great way -- perhaps the best way -- to cut calories is to trim your portion sizes, especially of foods that are high in calories. That would include many treats you would find at holiday parties and events.
This time of year is full of tempting food at the office, indulging potluck parties, and family get togethers. Whether you're looking to shed a few pounds or maintain a healthy lifestyle, here are a few tips to not overdo it during this holiday season.
This season, consider not succumbing to peer pressure and societal acceptance of holiday weight gain and instead stay physically active and avoid unplanned eating. Your body will thank you when the New Year rolls around.
Dieting during the holiday season is difficult. It is hard to shake your head and decline every time you are offered something indulgent to eat or drink during the six or so weeks between Thanksgiving and the end of the year.
It's that time of year again. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are upon us, and along with them, the most weight-gaining window on the calendar. If you are trying to maintain your weight, it's a downright "dangerous" time.
Binges never happen in an emotional vacuum, even though we can pretend that they do. Often, someone claims that she was in perfect control of her eating until she ate that first doughnut or piece of chocolate. "It was the sugar that set off my binge," is usually the explanation.
We've made it through Thanksgiving, and as we approach the meat of the holiday season (hopefully not with tighter jeans), there are still plenty of temptations to come. Here are some tips to stay the course and come out ahead.
Regardless of how prepared you are to appear in your holiday best at this season's parties, it's never too late to incorporate some last-minute nutrition, hydration and fitness practices to help you feel (and look) great at your next soiree.
Overdo the holiday? Don't wait until January 1 to get back on track -- climb back on the wagon today! It's so easy to let one holiday derail you with a huge meal, a long weekend and not enough exercise.
