For those who celebrate it, Christmas is upon us! Whether
you celebrate it or not, holiday foods and sweets
surround us, and it’s hard not to overindulge. Our goal is to
help you maintain your current weight over the holidays.
We’re over the halfway point! The holiday season is upon us, and
we’re excited to continue to help you maintain your current
weight over the holidays, without having to totally give up all
the things that make the holidays special to you.
Week 1: This holiday season, take charge of your weight
Most Americans gain an average of about 1 pound during the holidays. While this may not seem like a lot, they usually don’t lose it. The average American adult gains 2 pounds per year, so half of adult weight gain can be attributed to the holidays!
Consuming excess sugar leads to more awakenings when you’re
trying to sleep through the night, according to a 2016 sleep
study conducted by Columbia University, where 26 adults were
studied in a sleep lab.
When you were a child, you played tag. You swam with friends
until someone made you get out of the pool. You raced your
sibling from the outfield to the concession stand, and competed
in hopscotch and jump rope.
