Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat! Between office parties, family gatherings and parties with your friends, weight gain is inevitable if you do not have healthy eating strategies.
A study looking at the effects of the holiday season on weight gain found that body fat percentage - which accounts for abdominal fat - increased significantly, and this type of fat is associated with obesity and chronic diseases such as Diabetes.
Why not make this year the year you don’t ask for a larger belt in your stocking:
Nuts are the perfect example that good things come in small packages.
These bite-size nutritional powerhouses are packed with fats that are great for your heart, as well as protein, vitamins and minerals.
But as always, just don't overdo it!
Have a merry Christmas!Lorca
