Obesity levels in America have been on the climb for the past 2-3 decades and now over 65% of the population can be categorized as overweight or obese. The average American gains 1-2 pounds each year. A major contributor to annual weight gain is fast approaching – the holidays. The holidays are notorious for rich foods, extra calories, and weight gain.
Surviving the holidays without gaining weight depends on you making the right choices without feeling deprived. Dietitians Ursula Ridens and Lisa Nelson have teamed up to share practical tips on how to enjoy the holidays without the “gift” of extra weight.
In this information packed call, participants will discover simple ways to modify favorite foods to provide fewer calories (but still taste great!); ten insider secrets to help you enjoy the holiday festivities without packing on unwanted pounds; the most important thing you MUST do before the holidays arrive if you want to be successful; and one simple step to drastically decrease and prevent weight gain during the holidays.
Ursula and Lisa understand the physical, mental, and social pains of carrying extra weight...shame, guilt, achy joints, trouble getting up from the couch, not being able to move freely to play with your kids or grandchildren, diabetes, high cholesterol, and many more. Ursula and Lisa have over 20 combined years of experience guiding individuals to long term weight loss through healthy choices.
Since 2001, Ursula Ridens, RD Inc. has worked with individuals who suffer with unhealthy relationships with food and their body. The primary approach targets realistic lifestyle and behavior change for weight management, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, and managing diabetes for a longer, healthier life. The company offers online and in-office services including individual and group nutrition coaching, step by step weight loss programs, e-coaching, corporate wellness programs and seminars, and teleclasses.
