Avoid Weight Gain This Holiday Season
The holidays can be stressful. There are holiday parties, family obligations, and eating temptations. Many people just take a break from their fitness program. Most of us overeat during the entire 5-week holiday season. If you do not exercise, you will just gain weight and be stressed. A slight increase in body weight each holiday season can add up over time until it becomes a potential health problem. Even though the average weight gain may be fairly small, the weight is usually not lost once the holidays are over and can add up to a significant increase over time. In general, as we age, we tend to gain one to two pounds a year as our metabolism slows, and particularly, if we lose muscle. Wouldn’t it be nice to start the New Year without the extra weight? Staying active now can also help you to avoid the common January pitfall of doing too much exercise after being sedentary during December, which may lead to injuries.
