The 2018 Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge

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 may not sound like much, most people never manage to lose these extra pounds. You are invited to join the 12th annual Holiday Challenge. Rather than focusing on trying to lose weight, this FREE seven-week challenge provides you with tips, tricks, and ideas to help maintain your weight throughout the holiday season.

Last year’s Holiday Challenge was the biggest and best ever. We had over 28,000 participants from all 50 states, all 100 NC counties, and 17 additional countries. Now it’s time for the 2018 Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge!


The Holiday Challenge will begin November 12th and run through December 31st.

    Thank you for allowing me to register. Each year I attempt to get my family members to change their eating habits during the holiday season but to no avail. Hopefully this year it will be different and I will have a Good report to share, because we will “Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less”!!! Geri
