Tips for Shedding Pounds this Holiday Season
ABC's to Holiday Health
NO WHERE TO WORK OUT WHEN VISITING FAMILY?
NEED A STRATEGY TO STAY FIT THANKSGIVING [& XMAS]?
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
