Holiday Weight Gain
You love to eat during the holidays… BUT if you eat too much when you celebrate, you might be playing Santa at your next office party.
The average weight an adult gains each holiday season is 2 pounds! What’s worse… most of us never lose it.
Will you be Naughty or Nice?
– Pecan Pie (500 calories / slice) vs. Pumpkin Pie (230 calories / slice)
– Turkey Leg with skin (148 calories/ serving) vs. Honey Ham (67 calories / serving)
– Cheese Tray (110 calories / serving) vs. Fruit Tray (80 calories / serving)
– Dinner roll (140 calories / roll) vs. Salad w/o dressing (15 cal / serving)
– Macaroni and Cheese (320 calories / serving) vs. Green Bean Casserole (110 calories / serving)
– Eggnog (391 calories / 8 oz.) vs. Champagne (96 calories / 8 oz.)
– Calorie Total: 1,609 vs. Calorie Total: 598
If you go Naughty, you’ll consume 1,609 calories in one sitting! That’ll take 2.5 hours of high-impact aerobics to burn off.
If you go Nice, you’ll consume only 598 calories. You’re only in for less than 1 hour of high-impact aerobics!
If you pack on 2 pounds each year starting when you’re 21, by the time you are 45 years old, you will have gained 48 lbs.
How can you keep the holiday merriment off your hips?
Eat before you go. It’s tempting to go to a holiday party starving, but it means you’ll likely stuff yourself. Snack before you go and save yourself from overeating.
Exercise daily. Get a minimum of 30 mins of activity a day, even if you’d rather hibernate near the fireplace. If you do gorge yourself at the big feast, go to the gym the next morning!
Eat slowly. Your brain might want to eat all the things, but it also needs 20 minutes to know your stomach is full. Drink a glass of water before you start eating as well – it helps to curb your hunger.
Portion control. Can’t resist the holiday treats? Serve yourself half of a normal portion and save a ton of calories. Then you don’t have to be embarrassed that you don’t fit into your New Year’s Eve dress!
So you couldn’t resist the pie
You knew better, but you ate it all anyway and now your waistline is a little out of control. Don’t worry – you’re not on Santa’s Naughty list yet! Start making healthy decisions this holiday season!
