    Weight loss programs typically focus only on physical factors related to weight loss. Begin to think of yourself
    as a student of change as you learn to incorporate structure into your daily life and apply new strategies to the
                                                  world around you.

                               Why is it so EASY to GAIN WEIGHT during the HOLIDAYS?
                                                                 By Diana Keuilian

  Why is it so EASY to GAIN WEIGHT during the HOLIDAYS?
 by: Diana Keuilian

I’m sure you have pondered this question, for it is no secret that we all tend to put on a few pounds
during this magical time of year! For many of us across the globe it is a tradition to ring in the New Year
with our belts loosened and seams bursting. Read on for 5 reasons why it is so easy to gain weight
during the month of December, and what you can do to avoid them!

REASON #1: Have Yourself a Merry Little Eggnog

What tastes better on a cold December day than a mug of Hot Cocoa, Spiced Apple Cider, or Rich
Eggnog? The holidays are filled with occasions for us to congregate and indulge in calorie packed
beverages. An average glass of Eggnog packs over 340 calories and close to 20 grams of fat! Drinking
just 10 glasses of Eggnog during the month of December will result in a 1 lb weight gain! This year
steer clear of the calorie filled beverages and stick to drinking water.

REASON #2: Deck The Halls with Boughs of Finger Food

You can see it now, the appetizer table at your Holiday Party! Mountains of fried finger foods, plates
filled with rich cheeses, colorful deviled eggs, and best of all, the selection of gourmet sausage.
Mingling with friends turns to circling the finger foods, grazing like it is your last meal. This year take a
plate and fill it once. No seconds, thirds, fourths…you get the idea.

REASON #3: Here Comes Santa Claus – And He’s Bringing Cookies

People love to give gifts around the holidays and many of these gifts are edible! Who doesn’t enjoy
receiving homemade fudge or fruitcake from their Aunt Gertrude? The problem lies in our attempt to
eat ALL of the edible holiday offerings before it is time to take down the tree. Enjoy edible gifts in
moderation, and don’t overeat simply because the food is available.

REASON #4: All I Want for Christmas is My Sweet Tooth

                                            Presented by Daniel Toriola

Gingerbread cookies, spiced cakes, and truffles are all abundant during the month of December. Far
too abundant! Limit your sweet tooth to a couple sugar selections each week and save yourself from
the extra, empty calories!

REASON #5: Away in a Manger, No Time for the Gym

Shopping, wrapping, baking, gatherings…and you want me to go to the gym? The holidays are the
easiest time to put off working out. Sweating in the gym almost seems masochistic when your other
option is to be curled up in front of the Christmas tree with a plate of cookies in your lap! This year
factor your workouts into your schedule and stick to it. Make sure that at minimum you are still getting a
cardiovascular workout in 3 times a week.

Take time to integrate these tips into your busy December schedule, and I am sure that you will be
thanking yourself come the New Year! I wish you all Happy Holidays!

                                                   Don't Eat a Lot to Live a Little
                                                              By Mark Haner

You've heard it before, right?

"C'mon, it's the holidays - live a little!"

Maybe you've heard it; maybe you've even said it.

I know I've said it to myself before. But it's such a flawed way of looking at life. You don't have to
binge in order to enjoy Thanksgiving or any other time of the year.

But that's the kind of thinking that the statement enables - you're only living if you're doing something
bad for you. The holidays really bring this mindset to the forefront. You should be enjoying the
holidays, but how did enjoying the company of family and friends get mixed up with binge eating and

Do your best to make the holidays about the people you love, not food. You can enjoy their company
without doing the things that cause most Americans to gain five to ten pounds over the holidays. Of
course you can enjoy some turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce on Thursday - I know I will.
But the point is that you don't eat until you're so stuffed you can barely move. It's not healthy. The
dirty little secret that we've all conspired to deny is that we're a society of emotional eaters.

We've become, to a very unhealthy degree, attached to the annual overindulgence that is the holidays.
 Emotional eaters typically share one thing in common - they're usually overweight. Whether it's
candy, cookies or all those drinks you're downing at a holiday get-together, they're contributing to the
average of 619 extra calories Americans eat every day between Thanksgiving and the New Year. And
they're all so unnecessary to your happiness.

Be willing and able to say no to alcoholic beverages in favor or water or tea. Eat something healthy
before going to get-togethers to prevent cravings for fatty, sugary snacks.

Holiday weight gain isn't just an inconvenience - it's dangerous. Don't think that you're just going to
take the weight off with a New Year's resolution. It's far easier to gain ten pounds than it is to lose it,
and most people give up before ever losing their holiday weight, leaving them heavier, unhealthier and
unhappier all year-round. Worse yet, it puts them in an increasingly challenging position every holiday
season. At an average of five to ten pounds of holiday weight gain per year, it's not hard to see how
quickly a person can become obese.

Eating well during the holidays takes some will power. You should treat yourself to some of the foods
you want this holiday season, but exercise some determination and be reasonable in the coming
