Tomorrow millions of Americans will eat to the point where they have to unbutton their pants and lie down. I might be one of them. While one day of overindulgence doesn’t ruin a healthy lifestyle, polls and studies show that many Americans gain between one and seven pounds during the holiday season each year – and they don’t normally lose those holiday pounds in the following year.
Stop the cycle of holiday weight gain this year by following the seven tips in my article for the PBS website NextAvenue. I pulled several of the tips from my weight loss book, Reboot Your Body: Unlocking the Genetic Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss. There are quick, easy tips you can use every day, and a few bigger-picture strategies to change the way you think about the holidays, your traditions and what the spirit of celebration really means. I hope you enjoy the article and I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
