Wait Gain

pholeUnless you’re a squirrel or a maned wolf, you probably are not looking to gain weight, so gobble up these tips before the BBM.

Nine Tricks to Avoiding Holiday Weight Gain:

1. Make a plan...for your exercise and eating strategies

2. Have a little: portion control

3. Pick your battles: decide ahead of time what you’re going to indulge in

4. Keep moving, even 10 minutes a day

5. Take control of your environment. Stop the parade of food into your mouth:
• Never engage in conversation while standing next to the buffet table.
• Wear snug clothing. Feeling that pull at your waist will serve as a reminder that you should slow down or take a walk.
• Chew on sugarless gum to prevent you from going back to the buffet line for second helpings.

6. Prepare in advance: Don’t go to a party hungry.

7. Don’t graze: Noshing is the same as mindless eating.

8. Stick to your drink limit.

9. Get back on that horse: Decide that the holidays are over & it’s time to get back on track.
