UGA Extension Services staff has a way fun way to help you avoid weight gain over the holidays. The Zero Weight Gain Holiday Challenge and newsletter will provide tips about how you can eat more wisely and be more active. Sample topics include dealing with the restaurant frenzy, 10 ways to lose weight, modifying recipes, exercising safely, stress eating, healthy snacks and keeping healthy while traveling.
Seventy-eight percent of last year’s participants reported that they normally gained weight over the holidays. However, at the end of last year’s challenge, 56 percent did not gain any weight and 22 percent said they gained only a little weight. The majority of participants planned to use the information to help them control their weight after the holidays. To receive the newsletter, contact Cindee Sweda at 770-528-4070 or email@example.com.
