Lunch & Learn: How to Indulge without the Bulge

11-06-2014 | 12:10 pm | Gallery, W.T. Young Library or attend online!

Looking to set yourself up for success in avoiding holiday weight gain this season? This seminar is for you! Whether you're officially participating in our Keep It Off Challenge or not, you'll learn some little-known tips for keeping those pesky pounds off while still enjoying the spirit of the season. Maintaining your pre-holiday weight into the new year is undoubtedly challenging, but do-able. That's why we're devoting time to sharing strategies and "hacks" for:

  • Meals while traveling/ on-the-go
  • Recipe/ingredient substitutes
  • Classic holiday drink (alcohol) alternatives
  • Using foods as comfort during stressful situations
  • Keeping yourself accountable

According to researchers at the National Institutes of Health, most Americans never lose the weight they gain during the winter holidays. Join us in being proactive about not putting on the holiday weight in the first place.
