Here are 20 surefire tips that I use with my clients and friends that really work if you want to prevent weight gain or even lose weight during the holidays (or vacations, parties, and family gatherings year-round). In America, with all of the holiday festivities, parties, gatherings, and calorie-dense foods, it's not uncommon for people to gain weight between Thanksgiving week and the first week of January. In fact, over half of Americans will gain between 5 - 10 pounds during this short time. OUCH! Let's make this the first holiday season that you actually feel on top of the world when the New Year arrives — with soaring self-control and confidence and a healthier and stronger you — without gaining any extra weight.

1. Start the day in a healthy and positive way: Just as the first day of a new 30-day health and get-fit plan sets the tone for the entire month-long program, the first 40 minutes of each day sets the tone for the entire day. How do you want these first minutes to be in the morning? I want them to be relaxed, happy, healthy, positive, and sanguine. To make this happen, do what you can the night before so your first moments upon arising can be as positive as possible. Lay out your exercise clothes or your work clothes so you don't need to think about what to wear in the morning. Perhaps you can pack the lunches for yourself and your kids the night before. Or how about this? Set the kitchen table for breakfast the evening before so it's ready to greet you in the morning. When you begin the day in this most positive way, your entire day will flow more smoothly and confidently. During the holidays, there's so much added stress in our lives, so this simple practice of honoring those 40 minutes will make a profound difference in your life. Start tomorrow morning and continue this simple practice thereafter. In an upcoming Blog, I'll share with you what I do the first 40 minutes of the day.
