Enjoy the holidays, without getting fat.

Do you struggle to avoid gaining weight over the holidays? I know I do. Most of us gain a few pounds over the holiday season as we sit down for meals with family and friends. Jeremy Ferry, a personal trainer from Springfield Illinois, shares 3 tips to help you avoid gaining weight over the holidays this year.

Don't let Santa give you that unwanted gift of an extra 10lbs this year!

Tip #1 – Limit the Sweets

Try not to eat sweets every day. Eat 1 piece, less than 2-3 times a week. Limit your sweets!

Tip #2 – Limit Your Portions

Eat what you want, but limit how much of it you eat. Try to fit everything on one plate. Take small portions of each item. Try not to go back for second and third helpings!

Tip #3 – Exercise

Start by walking if you haven't already. Join a local gym. Go for a run. Do whatever you need to do, but don't neglect to stay active this holiday season.

Watch the full video below. Hope this was helpful, enjoy your holidays!
