LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -
It's the most wonderful time of the
year, stockings are hung, the tree is decorated and holiday meals seem never
It's also the time of year where most
Americans put on five to ten pounds.
"A lot of that is due to a
stressful environment. We're spending more money that we're used to spending
and our schedules are busier and a lot of times our meals will be the last
thing we think about," said Amy McLeod, Rd, Ld, Registered Dietician,
Once the holidays are over gyms are
filled with many trying to get rid of their holiday weight and fulfill New Year's
"Diet and exercise you can't do
one without the other, its all about making that habit," said Matt Engel,
Store Manager, Complete Nutrition.
Registered dietician Amy Mcleod says
starting a healthy workout now could save you the trouble.
"They should start by exercising
preferably in the morning because we have a lot of activities at night and we
come up with excuses not to exercise," said McLeod.
Dietitians say portion control is key and its
important to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables and holiday parties can be
a set back if you're not prepared.
"Have a snack before you go so
you don't go starving so that especially if there is a delay in the meal you
may really over eat when that food comes," said McLeod.

"You should not go on a diet
because you can get back off, make a cleaner lifestyle," said Engel.
"If you can kind of have the
mindset that you are going to continue you physical activity," said
It's a routine you can keep as you
head into the new year.
