know, I know. We just finished up Thanksgiving festivities. And with
Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year's around the corner, it would be so easy to give yourself a free pass to overindulge from now until next year. But I know you won't. You probably want to
avoid holiday weight gain, right? And maybe even lose some weight over the holidays?
If you're wondering how to accomplish these goals, I've got you covered. I'm sharing some of my fave tips here, and here's one reminder that will go really far, too: Keep the reason for the season top of mind! And nope, that reason isn't an endless supply of mom's famous pecan pie or Aunt Shelly's irresistible butterscotch cookies. It's enjoying time spent with family and friends, as well as spreading love and holiday cheer. Here's to a happy, healthy, and only moderately indulgent December!

When it comes to weight loss, I'm also a fan of little changes like swapping out higher-calorie seasonings for lower-cal ones like everything bagel spice mix. Having company over this holiday season? Consider these healthy entertaining recipes.
