Make Merry and Burn It Off

So holiday weight gain might not be that mythical seven pounds the media was throwing around recently, but the one or two pounds people actually do gain during the holidays tends to stay with them for life. If you are wanting to have your egg nog and drink it too, you are going to need to make sure you keep moving over the next couple of weeks. NYC Personal trainer Stacy Berman has gone to the trouble to figure out how much caloric trouble a few traditional holiday treats cause. She has also figured what you have to do to burn those calories so you can maintain your figure!

  • One glass egg nog (220 calories per glass) requires one hour of ice-skating (220 calories burnt per hour)

  • One slice of pecan pie (510 calories per slice) requires three and a half hours of shopping (150 calories burnt per hour)
  • Stuffing (198 per ½ cup) requires half an hour of shoveling snow (195 calories burnt per 30 minutes)

Me? I'll take a slice of pie and some marathon shopping!

Yes, I hate all of those things, but I still find plenty of other high caloric food to eat. I just add an extra mile or two to my run (and shopping, of course) and hope that I at least come out even after the holidays.
