Dr. Eileen Silva a specialist in Natural Health and author of A Healthier You! (Insight Publishing) thinks people should be aware of the little mistakes they make around the holidays that cause them to pack on the pounds.
Silva feels people dont get enough zzzs over the holidays, and says if theyd devote more time to sleeping, theyd spend less time looking for food to perk them up.
She says during festive times, people also substitute water with things like egg nog, punch, or worse, alcohol, and that everyone should up their water intake to two quarts, no matter what else theyre drinking, which curbs the appetite and cleanses the body.
And speaking of cleansing, Dr. Silva thinks colon cleansing is a great holiday detox activity because she says colons contain anywhere from seven to 15 pounds of debris at any time.
If you have a little more because of holiday binges, you shouldnt feel bad because, she notes, Elvis supposedly had 63 pounds of garbage in him.
