Weight Control Tips for the Holiday Season
The holiday season is here, and along with the season arrives an array of wonderful foods! Of course we all know that this means extra calories, and added pounds. However, it is possible to enjoy some of the holiday treats without "packing it on." Netty Levine, MS, RD, a registered dietitian at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's outpatient Nutrition Counseling Center notes, "The key to successfully navigating the holiday season is to plan ahead, outlining for yourself a practical weight management strategy that doesn't leave you feeling deprived during the holidays, but will also help you avoid weight gain."
We have all heard the usual tips to avoid gaining weight during the holidays, however Ms. Levine has offered a few new ones (and we at MedicineNet.com agree) that some of these are a breath of fresh air!
