Don't let holiday calories add up

DOWNEY – As we enter the holiday season, many of us stress out about gaining weight with all the holiday parties and family gatherings.
No need to worry – it’s still possible to have that piece of pumpkin pie and still lose weight and stay healthy. Here are a few tips to help you during the holiday season:
•Make a goal to do something active for 30 minutes per day, six days per week (walking, jogging, weights, exercise DVD, etc.).
•Give yourself a cheat day to enjoy your favorite holiday foods (but remember everything is in moderation).
•Don’t keep those tempting foods laying around.
