It’s difficult to resist all the temptation around during the holidays. The combination of food, deserts, alcohol and inactivity is more common as the days get colder and the party invites keep coming. A little here, a little there… pretty soon it adds up to some extra pounds of body fat. As we age, it becomes harder to get rid of that body fat and increases our risk for many age related diseases.

Add in declining hormones and you have the perfect storm for increased fatigue, continued weight gain and myriad symptoms from age related physical decline.

• Energize your morning: Wake up, exercise and eat a balanced breakfast
• Be picky about the foods you eat: Make good choices, avoid sugar and processed foods
• Graze throughout the day: Eat small meals, preferably healthful foods
• Add in an extra workout: A walk or short trip to the gym
• Drink more liquid: Water or vegetable juice are best. Avoid soda and fruit juices
