Holiday Maintenance

Every year millions of people indulge in the holiday spirit by also indulging in rich holiday foods. Most use the excuse that “it’s the holidays” and “I’ll start my diet with the New Year,” as they throw their self control out the window.

However, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. One can enjoy the the savory and sweet foods that surround the holidays without over-indulging. It’s okay to allow yourself an occasional extra scoop or a dessert. Just don’t make it a daily December ritual. When you are enjoying festivities or neighborly treats, try to do so in moderation. And when you are away from the merry-making, make a conscious effort to eat right.

You may not lose weight or increase your fitness level over the holidays, but you can certainly set a goal to maintain it!
