The last thing most of us want to think about over the holidays is dieting or watching what we eat.  After all, Thanksgiving and Christmas start the party festivities that last well into the New Year.  Unfortunately, it’s a time to be tempted to over eat and put on those extra pounds.  So what do you do to avoid all that?  Join Deb Guenterberg as she shares some simple holiday eating tips and tricks to make the most of the season without weight gain.
