Holiday Weight Gain

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - The holiday season is now well past us and now it is time to deal with what it left behind, especially around our waste line.

We show you how to tackle holiday weight gain in this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch.

Dr. Judith McKenzie is on the case.

Many people experience a 5-10 pound weight gain from their baseline.

Turn things around by, eating more vegetables and whole grains. Drink only calorie free beverages. Control portions and increase exercise.

See your doctor for information on lifestyle changes that will help you lose weight.
