200 is the Magic Number
We’re only a few short weeks away from 2020.
The holiday season is winding up and the New Year will be here before you know it.
How was it last last year? Did you survive the food, drink and desserts onslaught without gaining too much weight or did your plan go out the door and you’re not real happy with the way you look and feel right now?
I've heard both sides. Many people were able to maintain their fitness routines, consume some goodies but didn't go overboard with all the extras.
There’s also the group that over indulged and are now paying the price for all the extra food consumption.
That’s really all it takes to gain weight over the holidays.
200 to 250 additional calories per day over a 4 to 5 week period will give the average person an extra 10 to 15 pounds of weight.
Yep, the magic number is 200 calories!
If there was no working out involved, then weight gain was a lot easier than if the extra calories were consumed and burned off.
Now, we’re left with the overweight/weight loss dilemma and how we’ll get unwanted weight off…. Again!?!?
Stay tuned for tomorrows post. I will discuss the reasons for most failures and how to avoid the same mistakes we've seen in the past.
Start Strong, Finish Stronger in 2019!
