Jacksonville, Fl. - Florida Department of Health: Maintain, Don’t gain! This holiday Season
It may not be something you want to hear as you prepare for a major Thanksgiving feast, but the health department says many Americans gain between one and five pounds each holiday season.
They say while it might not sound like much, most people never manage to lose those extra pounds. Which is why the Florida Department of Health is encouraging everyone to include health in their holiday activities by joining the 2017 Eat Smart, Move More: Maintain, Don’t Gain! Holiday Challenge.
The seven-week, e-mail based campaign started on November 13, but it’s not too late to join. It runs until the end of December.
This year, rather than focusing on trying to lose weight during the holiday season, you can try this free-seven week challenge which would provide you with tips, tricks, and ideas to help maintain your weight throughout the season.
The Challenge includes weekly newsletters delivered by e-mail with tips on how to:
- Survive a holiday party;
- Manage holiday stress;
- Be a healthy host;
- Fit physical activity into your day;
- Prepare a quick and healthy meals;
- Serve healthy holidays
