: Cape Gazette HEALTH & FITNESS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16- THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2014 2~ Tips for a healthy holiday season Holiday treats can tempt the most well-intentioned palates. To avoid holiday weight gain, the Delaware Division of Pub- lic Health advises adopting a healthy eating strategy and giv- ing gifts that help your loved ones stay healthy. Studies show that holiday weight gain is often permanent. To curb your appetite, don't go to a party hungry; eat something healthy before departing. Try sal- sa or low-fat dips. Fresh berries, apple slices, citrus wedges, figs, and dates satisfy a sweet tooth. Unsweetened nuts, sunflow- er seeds, and toasted pumpkin seeds provide crunch and valu- able nutrients. The 5-2-1 Almost None campaign recommends that ev- eryone eat five or more fruits and vegetables each day and limit recreational screen time to two hours each day (this includes TV, computer, and gaming). Drinking plenty of water helps stomachs feel full and hydrates skin dur- ing the season when skin is drier due to cold weather outside and heated homes inside. Increasing physical activity reduces the risk for chronic dis- eases, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cer- tain cancers, while improving mental health and wellness. To prevent obesity in children, it is important for children to lead physically active lifestyles and not consume too many calories. Obese children are at increased risk for developing high cho- lesterol, high blood pressure (hypertension), type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and many other conditions and diseases.
