Enjoy the festivities. Celebrate the season. But don’t let it be a feeding frenzy!


The holidays are in full swing! For some it’s a feeding frenzy starting with Halloween and sometimes not ending until the Superbowl!

Contrary to popular belief the average person does not gain 5-10 pounds over the holidays. They may gain one or two. The problem is it may not come off after the first of the year and therefore causing weight creep.

In these next few blogs I’m going to share some of my favorite tips—tips good to follow not just for the holidays but year round. I don’t want to be a killjoy; after all, this is the season to celebrate. However, wouldn’t you rather start 2014 feeling GREAT?

  • If at a party or dinner and encouraged to eat more, politely say, ‘The food was so great, I could not possibly eat one more bite!’
  • If you don’t love it, why eat it? There’s just too much good food to not waste on the waist! Here’s a short video that describes this tip.

How do you stay on track over the holidays?
