"It may seem like a contradiction to be able to enjoy the holidays and maintain a healthy weight, but it's not. By making a few changes in some of your traditions and behaviors, you can participate fully in the holidays while staying healthy."
— Jennifer Ventrelle, nutrition consultant
It's estimated that the average American gains one to four pounds over the holiday season, which can add up over the years. Taking a healthy approach to the holidays will not only make you feel good but help you avoid accumulating those extra pounds.
