Maintain, Don’t Gain This Holiday Season

This holiday season, the only thing that should be “stuffed” is the turkey. Many Americans gain between 1 and 5 pounds each holiday season. While it might not sound like much, most people never manage to lose those extra pounds.You are invited to join the 13th annual Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge. Rather than focusing on trying to lose weight, this FREE seven-week challenge provides you with strategies and resources to help maintain your weight throughout the holiday season.

Last year, more than 39,000 people from around the world participated. Now it’s time for the 2019 Holiday Challenge!
