Healthy Habits Can Help Prevent Weight Gain

By Virginia Laird

Healthy habits have a lot to do with overall health and wellness, including weight gain. Experts admit that those who follow a variety of healthy habits have more success keeping weight off as well as losing weight. At times, during the holidays it can be trying to choose healthy living. Nonetheless, these are the commitments necessary to keep your health heading in the right direction. A few tips to follow when trying to prevent holiday weight gain include:

  • Make sure to drink plenty of water
  • Add exercise to your holiday routine
  • Follow a diet rich in veggies

Make Sure to Drink Plenty of Water

While there are a host of beverages which offer more to the taste buds than water, it remains the best choice when trying to prevent adding weight to your waist. Many health and wellness experts suggest that consuming at least half of your body weight in ounces each day is a great way to curb your appetite. Making sure to drink plenty of water each day can help prevent packing on the pounds.

Add Exercise to Your Holiday Routine

With the hustling about during the holidays you may find yourself losing track of time and skip out on a few of your healthy habits. Health and wellness experts say that exercising daily can help promote weight maintenance as well as weight loss. As you feel the rush of each day pass by while you check your list of holiday to-dos, make sure you are carving out some time to get in a good sweat.

Follow a Diet Rich in Veggies

Research suggests that following a diet rich in veggies can be helpful in preventing weight gain. Veggies are known to be low in calories and still offer enough vitamins and minerals. While there are many who prefer to load up on food choices that exclude green veggies, this is not the best decision. Health and wellness experts suggest if you are one who prefers to avoid consuming veggies it may be time to learn how to cook them in a variety of ways. Learning how to add them to your favorite dishes or cooking them in a new way can help you learn to love veggies. Making veggies a staple in your diet is necessary when trying to prevent holiday weight gain.

Now you are ready to begin enjoying your holiday festivities without the stress of packing on the pounds.
