Just because it's the holiday season, it doesn't mean you have to pack on the pounds!
"Between Christmas cookies and cocktail parties, plus all the heavy holiday meals in between, it can be easy to put on a few pounds during the holiday season," the former Girl Next Door blogs. "Don't let it happen! Here's how to make it to 2013 with a flat belly.
"Start every day with breakfast and a short workout. Eating breakfast will rev up your metabolism for the day and a short run or a 20 minute yoga session in the morning boosts your energy and keeps your appetite in check for the rest of the day."
She also suggests fueling up on healthy food before gorging on all the fattening fare.
"Never go to a party hungry," she advises. "Eat a small meal before attending cocktail parties, dinner parties, or any events where food will be served. Holiday appetizers are usually fried, stuffed with cheese, or full of sugar. Taste what you want but never make a meal of party appetizers."
And watch out for high calorie alcoholic beverages!
"Drink lots of water! Particularly if you're drinking cocktails, pace yourself and drink a glass of water between alcoholic beverages. If you're drinking cocktails, have a few sips of your favorite seasonal drink, like eggnog, or apple cider, then switch to something lower calorie like vodka soda with a lime wedge."
