The holidays are something to look forward to. It should be a time to celebrate. A time to bond with family and friends. Instead, most of us dread packing on the pounds. True, the holidays mean lots of food and drink. It doesn't have to go to your waist and thighs, though...

 

Editor's Note: Through the month of December, we will be providing tips to help you stay fit through the holidays. ~Bess

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: NASA says rebounding is the most effective exercise created by man: it is low impact, improves balance and coordination, and the gravity-force of each jump on the rebounder automatically trains the pelvic diaphragm, which helps control incontinence & enhance lifestyle. It is also considered the best exercise for the immune system. Check out a sample rebounding class here.

by Mariel Hemingway

For me to be alive and happy I have had to organize my life differently. I had to find time where I would otherwise have been stressing over plans undone or future desires unmet. I have moved into a space where how I wake up becomes the template for a day well lived. I awaken with the sun most days if I have gone to bed early enough the night before...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: It is so easy to get up in the morning and just start on our to-do list without taking notice of the gift of just being able to wake up in the first place. I love Mariel’s way of being in the moment of waking up, and being present in those first moments of the day, aware that what she does sets the tone for the rest of the day.

ATH Guest Editor of Exercise & Fitness

Exercising can get boring. I know firsthand. I get into an exercise groove—and start to do the same things day after day. Running, Spinning, elliptical, and swimming are my go-to cardio favorites. While it seems like I’ve got a nice mix working for me, even this routine starts to get old after awhile. Freshening things up with a new class here and there will keep you motivated to stay on track with your fitness goals...

Looking for the perfect holiday present for a fitness fan? Gift offerings this year range from apps that can store a run in the country to be viewed later to gadgets so sophisticated they measure quality of sleep as well as calories burned...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Other great gift ideas include gift certificates for Rolfing, Massage, or a series of private lessons in Pilates, Yoga, or belly dancing.

by Dr. Al Sears

Touch your toes without straining your back. Play golf or tennis without waking up the next morning with aching joints. Do the strenuous activities you did when you were younger without pain.

These should be a piece of cake. If they’re not, it’s time to declare war on stiff muscles and joints...

From Thanksgiving onward, do you feel like you have a food hangover from overeating? The average person gains 9-12 pounds from Halloween through New Year’s Day. If you’re not careful, you will not only gain weight but change your metabolism permanently. Once you damage your metabolism, it can change in a way that is hard to reverse...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Lisa Lynn is the resident fitness expert on the Dr. Oz show. This article is part of our Holiday Health Series to help you keep fit during the holidays.

by Nathan Wei, MD

The holidays (Thanksgiving through New Year’s) are a stressful time for everyone. One important activity that often gets overlooked is exercise. During most of the year, setting a regular exercise program is doable. During the holidays, it's more difficult. Whether you exercise outdoors or indoors, here are some useful tips for you to follow...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Holiday weight gain may seem unavoidable and squeezing in exercise time impossible, but incorporating a few of Dr. Wei’s tips will help avoid those seasonal pounds. One fun fact: According to one fitness expert, shopping on Black Friday for 2 hours burns approximately 300 calories.

Did you know the average Thanksgiving dinner has over 2000 calories? That, mixed with the rest of the holiday season, helps account for a shocking statistic. The average American gains seven to ten pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day...

Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy a long weekend with friends, family, and, of course, food. While you may be looking forward to this year's turkey feast, a festive dinner can cause concern for anyone watching their waistline ... and for good reason. The calories in a typical holiday feast can quickly add up, totaling up to 2000 or even 3000 calories in a single sitting. Unless you are planning on offset the calories by completing a marathon on Sunday, stick to proper portion sizes and make smarter choices to prevent the post-holiday bulge...

Editor´s Note from Rachel Webster: If you want to prevent injury and get the best results possible from your workouts, perfect the basic moves before you progress.

Editor's Note: Have you ever tried a new exercise class without having the slightest clue of what to expect? Nia was that for me. I was a few minutes late and missed the introduction, so my only instructions from the teacher were spoken through his mobile mic as he danced and spoke, "Body, give me a sensation now." I leave this with you as you discover for yourself the beauty of Nia.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
