Americans Consume 6,000 Calories on Christmas Day

Stockings aren’t the only things getting stuffed this Christmas! Health experts says that the average American consumes a staggering 6,000 calories on Christmas – and an extra 500 for every day leading up to the holidays.

It’s not surprising that many find it difficult to stick to a healthy (or even  moderately unhealthy!) eating plan during the month of December. With temptation seemingly around every corner during the holiday season and colder, darker evenings, it is harder to maintain an exercise routine or healthy habits.

But winter doesn’t have to be synonymous with weight gain, and you don’t have to wait until the new year to resolve to get back in shape! At Bon Secours In Motion, our nutrition and weight loss experts offers a wide range of tailored weight loss and weight management services designed to help you lose the weight for good. Our three pillars of fitness are healthy eating, physical activity, and motivational support to help you change your behaviors.
