From the end of October to the end of December, the average American gains 8-10 pounds. Well, it’s no surprise when we have three holidays focused around eating within a 90-day period, or make it four holidays if you count New Year’s too! Sure, making smart food choices is always going to be helpful. Yes, going to the gym consistently can make you leaner and stronger. But what about your internal system running the whole show? If your lymphatic system or adrenal glands get burned out due to environmental stressors, poor food choices (i.e. Halloween candy), or excessive use of stimulants, your body won’t be functioning in optimal condition, and that IS going to put a hamper on your upcoming holidays.
