Holiday Weight Gain

By  | 

Experts say many people gain about five to ten pounds around the holidays. Here are some tips to prevent tipping the scale.

Fill up on fruits and veggies; drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day; never go to a holiday party hungry; limit your alcohol intake.

Dieticians say many people think they can work off the extra calories by bumping up their exercise routine. But experts say you can't work off a bad diet. It's very easy to take in 1,000 additional calories during the holidays but very difficult to burn that many calories in a work-out session.
