The holidays can be a festive time. Usually the food and drinks are flowing. Conversations can be fulfilling and memories are being made. One unfortunate side affect of the holiday season can be weight gain. Eating hearty and dense traditional foods can pack on the pounds. If you are feeling down about gaining weight during the holiday aftermath, try some of these tips to lose a few pounds:
- Walk an hour a day.
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Drink only water and stick to it.
- Try eating more fruit or vegetable based meals.
- Jump rope for 30 minutes a day (it is okay if you have to take breaks while jump roping – just make sure they are short)
*Before making any changes to your diet or starting a new exercise routine. Consult a physician. *
