If you are what you eat, then most people turn into holiday cookies sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
November is the start of temptation season. It begins with Halloween candy and continues through to the new year. For most of us, it's the following equation:
Treats + Parties + Temptation = Weight Gain
The few pounds gained are often still there the next year…when the cycle starts all over again. As the years go by, the pounds add up.
This year make a pact with yourself to break that cycle. You can make it through the next two months without gaining weight. Try these seven tips to keep the holiday parties, treats, and your waistline under control.
The sooner you make a plan to have a healthy holiday season, the more impact it'll have. If you typically gain, then preventing that gain is a big deal. If you really work at it, you may even find you lose a few pounds before the end of the year!
If you're like most people, the thought of tackling weight on your own can seem daunting. Finding support and guidance can be a key to success. The Sensei for Weight Loss program can help you achieve that success. Sensei was created by healthcare professionals, doctors, dietitians, and psychologists who understand the challenges of losing weight.
We created a program that's available on your mobile phone and your computer, so that it's with you anytime, anywhere. You can log in anytime to customize and plan ahead. We help you tackle the unhealthy habits that get in the way of losing weight. By looking at the way you live, the foods you like, and where you like to eat, we create a plan that fits your life. With more than 25,000 meals in our database, we have something for everyone.
