Five tips for helping you stay away from 'holiday fat' | Updated: 2015-02-25 15:42

It's easy to gain a few pounds over holidays, especially for the Chinese as the Spring Festival and its component family feasting are nearing.

To get rid of those "holiday fat", however, is not that easy. Following is what you are supposed to do to avoid putting on extra weight.

Stay active

One of the major causes of weight gain during the holidays is lack of activity. Time is spent doing holiday errands, which makes us more tired, less motivated, and not wanting to stick to our routine.

Best thing to do is to stick to your regular schedule. Not only will it help keep weight gain down, it will give you more energy and it will reduce your stress.

Don't starve yourself

Many people think before attending new year feast, they should go hungry all day so that they can "afford" the calories later on.

The truth is you may be so hungry that you will forget about any sense of the word moderation or control. The right thing to do is to make sure to eat your normal and healthy meals before the New Year feast.
