The holidays are coming: that time of year when everywhere you turn you smell something amazing. And, if you’re like most people, you give yourself a little leeway during the holiday season. After all, you want to enjoy everything about the season — including the desserts.
However, you also want to be mindful of your choices and your health.
Keep Your Weight In Check This Holiday Season
Office parties, pot-luck dinners, family gatherings—when Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and other seasonal holidays come around, the treats and calorie-laden food appear as well. That makes temptation harder to ignore, which can translate into extra pounds.
In fact, the average holiday weight gain can range from one to two pounds. However, people who are already overweight or obese can gain up to five pounds each season.
Because these pounds are rarely ‘lost’ at the same rate they’re gained, over time, they can add up. This added weight can increase an individual’s overall chance of developing health problems later in life.
