The “Festive Five”, a kitchy term that refers to the five pounds (on average) that Americans gain between Thanksgiving and Christmas, presents a challenge for those looking to lose weight or sustain their weight loss. How is one supposed to maintain discipline with so much temptation in the form of pumpkin pie, turkey, stuffing, dressing, and so many other delicious treats? Well, we want to let you know that it is impossible to stave off weight loss, and even lose weight, during the holiday season.
“During the holidays and every day, aim for at least five servings of fruits and vegetables, a maximum two hours of TV time, at least one hour of physical activity and zero sugar-sweetened beverages.”
With that in mind, we want to pass along some information INQUISITR recently shared in an article called “New Festive Five Weight Loss Tips”. We’ve summarized the pointers below.
