Health Tip: Celebrate a Healthier Holiday

-- The holidays are typically full of tempting meals and desserts. The downside is the resulting weight gain.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sugests how to keep holiday weight gain at bay:

  • Stay active. Walk often and park far from store entrances. Take a few extra laps around the mall, or start your work day by taking the stairs.
  • Eat healthier foods. You can indulge now and then, but eat small portions and balance fattier, sugary fare with healthier options.
  • Don't arrive at a party hungry, which may lead to overeating.
  • Plan activities that don't focus on food.
