Celebrate the Holidays Without Gaining Weight

The holidays get a bad rap for wreaking havoc on willpower and waistlines. In reality, the average American gains only 1 pound during December. The problem is, it's weight that is never lost. But you can embrace the season (sweets and all) and not tip the scale. It's all about making some tweaks to your favorite recipes, simple swaps and healthy choices.
