“The holidays are often marked by weeks or even months of overindulgence. This can cause irreparable damage to some and get even the fittest people into trouble. We tend to forget that ‘The Holidays’ aren’t really a season like football or winter; they’re just a handful of days. So, party on those days and stay on track with your health for the others and it can be a great time, without being a harmful one,” said Dr. Ben Lerner, co-founder of Maximized Living. “With a few tips from us, you can also learn all kinds of methods to make great tasting holiday meals and desserts that won't send the scale and your blood pressure rising through the roof.”
