Last week I received an email from my good friend Jayne.  She passed on an article that she found from about surviving the holiday weight gain. 

Since I know the holidays are a time that we ALL struggle with nutrition, I thought we could all use a good read reminding us of some helpful ways to stay healthy during holiday gatherings. 

Thanks for sharing this great find Jayne! 

Below are the key points from the article.   




It is that time of year again. Going shopping, holiday parties, loads of festive foods…and unfortunately for many also a time of unwanted weight gain.
