10 Tips for Preventing Holiday Weight Gain
The holidays can be a true test of your commitment to weight loss and a healthier lifestyle. Maintain your weight-loss journey and avoid gaining back those pounds during the festive season. Make your New Year about something other than losing excess pounds. Consider these tips from the staff of My Fit Body 360.
1. Focus on the whole season
The actual holiday — whether that’s Thanksgiving or Christmas Day — isn’t really the problem. Indulging on all the days in between is what adds a notable amount of calories and breaks your healthy-living habits.
Skipping one day of a workout or overeating on just one day isn’t going to cause you to gain several pounds. But if these habits snowball and last for six weeks, you may add pounds to your frame.
So if you do indulge, get right back on track the next day. Don’t dwell; just move forward with your weight-loss goals.
