Fitness Expert Gives Tips to Prevent Holiday Weight Gain.

San Francisco, CA, November 11, 2013 --( The Holiday season has jumpstarted, which means
fun with family and friends are in the near future! Gathering around a table for a feast with our loved ones
can be fun, but can also put quite a dent in our efforts to keep a healthy lifestyle.

This season, keep your diet on track! Personal trainer and fitness expert, Lisa Corsello, wants to share
these five tips to keep your weight in check during the holidays, while still being able to enjoy the
assortment of foods on the dinner table.

1. Weigh Yourself Regularly- Studies show that those who weigh themselves regularly are able to
maintain their weight more easily. By being aware of when we start to gain weight, we can make small,
manageable adjustments to diet and exercise to maintain weight.

2. Exercise Portion Control- Don't skip meals or deprive yourself of the foods you love this holiday
season. Instead, practice eating only half of what you would normally eat when it comes to dessert and
rich side dishes. Load up on the healthier side dishes (high fiber veggies) and leaner cuts of meat (breast)
so you'll stay fuller longer.

3. Stay Active- Try to carve out a bit of time for exercise each day. Not only will regular exercise help
maintain your weight, but it's also a great way to relieve stress and sleep better.

4. Plan Ahead- Go online and research just how many calories are in the foods you normally eat during
the holiday season. Being aware of what you're putting in your body can help you find healthier
alternatives. Also, try to stock up on healthy snacks that help ease cravings and satisfy your appetite, such
as nuts or plain popcorn.

5. Change it Up- Try a new exercise class, walking/running route, or sport. Trying something different
will challenge your body in a new and healthy way, and it will help keep your routine fresh and your
mind more engaged.

Tip: Rate your current exercise routine on a scale of 1-10, 1 being something extremely easy and 10 the
most challenging. During your next workout, try to increase that number by 1. After a week, if you're
feeling good, increase it again. Being mindful of the quality of your workout will help lead to better,
healthier routines with great results.
