Moderation urged during the festivities

NEWTON

The holidays are a stressful time, and can lead to weight gain. Ann Marie Sheridan, owner of Cutting Edge Fitness in Newton Centre offers some helpful tips to avoid the "holiday bulge":

- Portion control. If you are planning on eating dessert, take a small sample of it.

- If you are going to a party, bring your own low-fat alternative.

- Plan ahead! That way, you are less likely to indulge in unhealthy snacking habits.
