Holiday weight gain is real. Depending on what study you read, the average weight gain is between 5 and 10 pounds. Now that we’ve enjoyed holiday feasts and lots of delicious baked goods, we still have New Year’s parties and other holiday gatherings to look forward to. They may be fun, but the parties continue to offer delicious foods, drinks and extra calories. As we inch closer to 2019, it’s time to set our resolutions for healthier and happier living. In this segment, we look at how we can avoid extra, unwanted calories, talk about portion control and help you get ready for the New Year with Mercy Weight Management’s Registered Dietitian Sereen Zawahri Krasuna.
