10 Surprising Ways to Avoid Weight Gain During the Holidays

By Deborah Kotz Deborah Kotz Wed Dec 3, 5:44 pm ET
--- Wall Street Journal blogger Jacob Goldstein cites studies showing that people gain about a pound, on average, during the holiday season, far less than you'd think. But it's a pound that's really, really hard to lose come January. And over time, those pounds can really add up. This probably explains why my size 4s no longer fit.
So what can I do this month to avoid any December weight gain?
"All my patients this week are coming to ask me that," says registered dietician Jenn Sokols Haas, a nutritionist at the Nova Medical Group in Ashburn, Va. She tells me there are a lot of hidden culprits and offers the following tricks to sidestep overeating traps.
1. Eat before the party. Grab a 100- to 200-calorie snack containing carbohydrates, protein, and a little bit of fat--a low-fat yogurt with fruit slices, say, or a banana smeared with peanut butter. This will take the edge off your hunger so "you won't be as likely to grab everything that smells and looks good," Haas says.
2. Have one truly sinful treat. You can indulge and maintain your weight if you stick with a small portion of fudge, eggnog, pigs-in-a-blanket, heck, even fruitcake. Then, stick with nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods like vegetable slices for the rest of the night. "Pick something that's really worth the calories," Haas says, "and really taste the food, savoring every bite."
3. Account for what you eat. Keeping a food diary is the single best way to keep the pounds off. At the very least, Haas advises, do a mental rundown once or twice a day. "Cocktail parties, in particular, lend themselves to mindless eating," Haas explains.
4. Stop tasting the cake batter and cookie dough! Bake to your heart's desire, but avoid licking the spoon. Those little tastings can cost you 300 calories a pop. Yeah, I was shocked, too, when Haas told me that.
5. Ban the pretty dishes of cookies from your counter. I know it's the holidays and they look so festive, but bring them out only for dessert.
6. Avoid getting tipsy. Besides the calories in those glasses of bubbly, alcohol lowers your inhibitions. Then you're more likely to throw caution to the wind (along with your mental food diary).
7. Do stay active, but don't use it as an excuse to eat double portions. The "I ran an extra mile so I can have an extra piece of pie" reasoning often results in added weight gain. That's because most of us overestimate how many calories we burn and underestimate how many we consume. Getting in your regular workouts, though, will help compensate for those small holiday nibbles you just can't pass up.
8. Don't beat yourself up over one overindulgence. It's nearly impossible to put on a substantial amount of weight from, say, the turkey dinner with all the trimmings. After all, you'd have to consume an extra 3,500 calories to put on a pound. (If your scale edges up a pound or two after a meal, it's likely due to water retention from eating extra carbohydrates or sodium.) So if you know you overdid it on, say, Thanksgiving, cut yourself some slack and don't use it an excuse to throw in the towel.
9. Don't skip meals. Eating every four hours throughout the day will keep your metabolism revved up, Haas says. Contrary to what you might think, skipping meals doesn't save you calories over the long haul because by the time you sit down to eat, you're ravenous, which makes binging hard to avoid. What's worse, your body, in starvation mode, may more readily sock away the calories you consume as fat instead of burning them.
10. Gab and gab some more. Focusing on socializing with family and friends will help keep you away from the buffet table. While food is certainly a great sideshow during this time of year, the main event should be celebrating relationships. (But watch out: Here are 7 Ways to Avoid the "I'm in Love" Weight Gain.)

" There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end. So I concluded that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to enjoy themselves as long as they can. "

'Assignment Detroit' and the Culture of Innovation
Inforum- A Professional Women's Alliance

FRI 2010-01-15

Inforum Special Event:

Time Inc. Chairman and CEO to Talk Innovation at Inforum Luncheon on Jan. 15 DETROIT // On Jan. 15, Time Inc.'s Chairman and CEO Ann Moore will be in Detroit to talk about the media giant's ground-breaking Assignment Detroit project and how it fits into building a culture of innovation at Time Inc. Moore will speak at a luncheon hosted by Inforum, Michigan's largest and most prestigious business forum for women, starting at 11:30 a.m., at the Detroit Marriott. Time Inc. made waves locally and nationally when it purchased a home in Detroit and announced plans to spend an entire year getting to know the city better. Moore says the project is part of Time Inc.'s strategy for altering the landscape of the publishing world with new technology, novel approaches and fresh thinking. "Like the state of Michigan, Time Inc (and the entire publishing industry) is going through a dramatic transformation," Moore said. "Just as Time Inc has diversified beyond print-based content, Michigan now has to diversify beyond reliance on auto manufacturing. In that kind of environment, bold innovations (like our Assignment Detroit project) are the key to moving forward." Inforum CEO Terry Barclay says Moore's vision fits perfectly with the message of reinvention and renewal, which has been the main theme of Inforum's 2009-2010 events. "When it comes to getting out of a crisis, sticking to the script and doing what's expected usually is not a good strategy," Barclay said. "When the world changes around them, the most successful leaders show imagination, exhibit courage and take calculated risks when others are inclined to play safe. Our goal this year has been to point people in that direction. For that reason, we're thrilled to be hosting Ann Moore." Tickets to the luncheon are available now. The cost is $50 for Inforum members or $65 for nonmembers. For reservations visit the calendar at or call 313.578.3230. About Inforum Inforum is one of the largest and most prestigious business forums for women in the nation, with more than 1,800 members from a broad cross-section of Michigan's business community. The mission of the organization is to strengthen the business environment by creating opportunities for women to lead and succeed. Founded as the Women's Economic Club in 1962 in Detroit, Inforum has affiliates in Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan. For more information, visit or call 877.633.3500. About Time Inc.
