Stay Active, Stick To A Healthy Diet To Avoid Weight Gain During Holidays

November 22, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
Dieticians at the University of Missouri-Columbia say the healthy way to spend the holidays is by maintaining healthy diet and exercise habits. The basic motivator should be how good you feel when you eat healthy foods and stay physically active. Feeling better is a “great motivator” when holiday stress and cold weather offer convenient excuses to abandon healthy lifestyle habits. To avoid gaining extra weight during the holidays, the dieticians suggest, among other tips, snacking healthily throughout the day on the big dinner days, having a small, high-protein snack such as an apple with peanut butter, a hardboiled egg or yogurt, so you don’t arrive overly hungry at the dinner.
