Tips for Shedding Pounds this Holiday Season
ABC's to Holiday Health
There are many reasons why Americans gain weight during the holidays. The days are short and dark, it is cold outside, and our most well-intentioned health and fitness routines unravel in the frenzy of holiday parties and family obligations and visits. Combine this with the natural tendency we have to just 'hibernate' and eat chocolate Bon Bons by the fireplace and voila - you just gained 5 pounds.
But it doesn't have to be that way. With a bit of proactive planning and intention it is easy to arrive at the New Year with renewed spirit and energy, and even a few pounds lighter.
Read our complete article and see how the following tips can help you shed pounds this holiday:
* Modify Eating Habits
* Smart Snacking
* Workout Tips for Home or on the Road

Stuff the Turkey, Not Yourself on Thanksgiving
Recipes & Menu options for a Healthy Thanksgiving
The American Council on Exercises (ACE) has put out a great article showing how you can still prepare and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving feast without all the traditional fat and calories.
Simply by changing a few ingredients and modifying the dish you can create a healthy alternative.
I have shown below some of their recommended recipes (from www.eatingwell.com) but I highly encourage you to read the entire article - whether you are cooking this year or not.
