Start thinking about losing those holiday pounds
Posted on 12/29/2017 7:59:00 AM.

(undated) -- The holiday season is coming to a close and many of us have packed on a few extra pounds. Nutrisystem Corporate Dietitian Courtney McCormick says it's best to keep our weight loss goals realistic.

"We use to have goals, like working out an hour a day, losing 20 pounds or stop eating cookies and while they all may sound like really great New Year's resolutions. Those overly ambitious promises usually end up -- we break them a few weeks later," said McCormick.

McCormick recommends making weight loss a gradual process.

"Really the goal should be to drop one to two pounds per week. If you go at that rate, you're more likely to sustain and maintain that weight loss," said McCormick.

McCormick recommends taking simple steps like drinking six cups of water per day, getting plenty of sleep, and exercising 150-minutes per week.  The aerobic exercise goal can be easier to reach if you set your alarm to remind you to squeeze in a few ten-minute sessions per day.  Crash diets may seem like a fast fix, but results are rarely maintained.  If you follow these few recommendations you can get off to a healthy new year.
