Beat the Holiday Bulge!
The holidays are a time for family gatherings, gift giving, story-telling and unfortunately over-eating, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and weight gain. For weeks and months after the Christmas holidays, we blame our expanding waistlines on carrying around extra ‘holiday weight’. It is easy to pack on the weight over Christmas because we tend to consume more calories than normal due to all the available treats (who can turn down a snowball?) and home-cooked meals that seem big enough to feed a small army. And before you know it, bikini season will be upon on us and we will still be blaming those extra ten pounds on holiday weight. So why not try to avoid this yearly pattern from happening? Here are some helpful tips to try and prevent the Holiday Bulge.
