You know the feeling, you just want one more glass of eggnog, but you just can’t decide if the extra 250 calories are worth it. Between celebrations with friends, office parties and family gatherings, it can be difficult to stay on track throughout the holiday season. Our trainers know it can be difficult to say no to celebrating so they let us in on their secrets for staying fit during December.
Caleb Christian, trainer at David Barton Gym, says moderation is key. If you try to avoid holiday indulgences, you’ll feel deprived which can lead to overeating later. Caleb suggests cutting things in half. For example, instead of buying a dozen cookies, get six. It’s also a great idea to choose the things you really enjoy rather than sampling everything.
