Avoiding Holiday Weight Gain

Avoid holiday weight gain by walking. Get in 10,000 steps a day for best results.
If you haven’t been walking, you’re missing out on one of the nicest ways to add years to your life and to cheer your physical and mental health, says Dr. Mike Roizen, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic. Walking helps you lose weight, get fit, boost your mood, improve your sleep, reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer, keep your bones and your brain healthy, and even reduce food cravings!

Another great thing about walking is that it’s inexpensive and relatively easy to do, which most likely explains why it has the highest compliance rate of any exercise.
