Tips for Proper Weight Management This Holiday

  • The average American gains close to one pound during the six-week period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, while those who are overweight or obese gain an average of five pounds
  • Simple tips, such as planning out what you’ll eat at the start of each day, eating your protein at the beginning of your meal, going for a walk or reprograming the way your brain responds to high-sugar foods can help keep your weight in check
  • Intermittent fasting can also help you avoid weight gain and also normalize hormones related to weight and metabolism, such as insulin and ghrelin
  • Achieving and maintaining your ideal weight isn’t something to think about exclusively during the holidays; it should be more of a year-round consideration
