Why is it so EASY to GAIN WEIGHT during the HOLIDAYS?
I'm sure you have pondered this question, for it is no secret that we all
tend to put on a few pounds during this magical time of year! For many of us
across the globe it is a tradition to ring in the New Year with our belts
loosened and seams bursting. Read on for 5 reasons why it is so easy to gain
weight during the month of December, and what you can do to avoid them!
REASON #1: Have Yourself a Merry Little Eggnog
What tastes better on a cold December day than a mug of Hot Cocoa, Spiced
Apple Cider, or Rich Eggnog? The holidays are filled with occasions for us
to congregate and indulge in calorie packed beverages. An average glass of
Eggnog packs over 340 calories and close to 20 grams of fat! Drinking just
10 glasses of Eggnog during the month of December will result in a 1 lb
weight gain! This year steer clear of the calorie filled beverages and stick
to drinking water.
REASON #2: Deck The Halls with Boughs of Finger Food
You can see it now, the appetizer table at your Holiday Party! Mountains of
fried finger foods, plates filled with rich cheeses, colorful deviled eggs,
and best of all, the selection of gourmet sausage. Mingling with friends
turns to circling the finger foods, grazing like it is your last meal. This
year take a plate and fill it once. No seconds, thirds, fourths…you get the
REASON #3: Here Comes Santa Claus – And He's Bringing Cookies
People love to give gifts around the holidays and many of these gifts are
edible! Who doesn't enjoy receiving homemade fudge or fruitcake from their
Aunt Gertrude? The problem lies in our attempt to eat ALL of the edible
holiday offerings before it is time to take down the tree. Enjoy edible
gifts in moderation, and don't overeat simply because the food is available.
REASON #4: All I Want for Christmas is My Sweet Tooth
Gingerbread cookies, spiced cakes, and truffles are all abundant during the
month of December. Far too abundant! Limit your sweet tooth to a couple
sugar selections each week and save yourself from the extra, empty calories!
REASON #5: Away in a Manger, No Time for the Gym
Shopping, wrapping, baking, gatherings…and you want me to go to the gym? The
holidays are the easiest time to put off working out. Sweating in the gym
almost seems masochistic when your other option is to be curled up in front
of the Christmas tree with a plate of cookies in your lap! This year factor
your workouts into your schedule and stick to it. Make sure that at minimum
you are still getting a cardiovascular workout in 3 times a week.
Take time to integrate these tips into your busy December schedule, and I am
sure that you will be thanking yourself come the New Year! I wish you all
