Year after year, most American adults gain a pound or two of Bodyweight ( aka harmful fat) between Holidays of Thanksgiving and New Year.
That is 3500 to 7000 dietary kilocalories that may never “go away.”
That gain is plainly wrong. And that is a discretionary gain that is preventable.
What to do about this fatty fact?
• Eat less of high caloric and party food, and exercise more.
Drink more water before a social gathering. Go for the veggies without dip. Eat slowly. Duh.
If a normal “someone” eats 100 calories more each holiday day for ~6 weeks- that is over a pound of stored or used energy.
Use it because you may NOT lose it.
This added poundage is the equivalent to kilocalories “burned” in a full marathon run. So, adding a marathon of extra miles over the Holidays may create the burn NOT the carry of energy as stored fat.
That same “energy equation” is true for other calorie-burning activities like rowing or cross country skiing. Burn an extra 100 calories a day from sweaty activities and you can maintain your weight that you noted on a a scale before the Thanksgiving feast.
It is a doable do to keep from gaining holiday poundage.
I hope that you will!
