10 Ways to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
Experts say portion control is key when the temptations are endless.
It’s that time of year when extra calories lurk around every corner — frosted cookies at the office, eggnog at your neighbor’s, jelly doughnuts for Hanukkah or chocolates in your stocking. All these extras add up, and if you’re like most Americans, you’ll put on a pound or two by New Year’s Day.
So what’s the harm in a little holiday weight gain, especially if it’s just a pound? According to researchers at the National Institutes of Health, most Americans never lose the weight they gain during the winter holidays. The pounds add up year after year, making holiday weight gain an important factor in adult obesity.
But you don’t have to fall into this trap. It is possible to enjoy holiday goodies without putting on a single pound. “Portion control is the key,” says Susan Finn, PhD, RD. Finn serves as chairwoman of the American Council for Fitness and Nutrition. “I don’t believe you can’t eat food that you like — even indulgences — but it is the amount you eat,” she tells WebMD.
Of course, it’s not easy to go on portion patrol when the temptations are endless. That’s why WebMD compiled these tips to help you avoid overindulging.
How To Fit Exercise Into Your Routine (No Matter How Busy You Are)
We all know by now that maintaining an active lifestyle should be one of our top priorities in life. Only by taking care of ourselves do we stand a chance of being the kind of person we strive to be on the job, at home with our loved ones and in our communities. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
Work, in particular, can get in the way of working out — in fact, there is a big paradox going on, and it becomes more obvious the more challenging (and exciting!) a job gets: On one hand, we struggle to find time to work out; on the other, we can’t afford to not exercise because it is integral to sustained success.
My co-author and I sought to get to the heart of this paradox — and figure out how to beat it — when we wrote Winning Without Losing: 66 Strategies for Building a Wildly Successful Business While Living a Happy and Balanced Life. We interviewed 25 high-powered workers from around the world who somehow manage to exemplify healthy work-life balance. Based on these interviews, we’ve put together six tips for how to fit exercise into your daily routine — no matter how busy you are with work.
