5 Easy Ways to Avoid Gaining Weight During the Holidays

The holidays are a time to share with family and can provide you with many lasting memories. However, if you're not careful shoveling cookies and pie in your mouth before ringing in the New Year can have a lasting impact on your waistline. Here are 5 easy tips to stay fit and avoid the holiday bulge:
Keep exercising! Just because it's cold outside and there are presents under the tree doesn't mean it's time to skip the gym. Even if you decide to pass on hitting the gym, take a walk around the block to burn some of those extra calories you're consuming.

Portion control! Avoid loading up your plate before even taking a bite. It's true - your eyes are bigger than your stomach. Eat a little and then decide if you want to venture back for seconds.

Don't think about food! We know this is impossible, but studies have shown if you think about the act of eating you will actually eat more. Keep your mind on holiday cheer and not on holiday treats.

Eat throughout the day! This may seem ridiculous, but it's widely accepted that eating more smaller meals is better for your metabolism than a few large ones.

Watch what you drink! It's easy to rack up a few 1,000 calories while you indulge in seasonal decadent drinks. One serving of the average eggnog will set you back roughly 350 calories and nearly 20 grams of fat.

HydroPeptide®: the Leader in Peptide Based Skin Care

The HydroPeptide® collection utilizes more peptides, at higher concentrations than any other skin care company to provide significant anti-aging results.

Peptides are present in every living cell and possess a variety of biochemical activities. Peptides were first synthesized in 1975 as medicine used during childbirth and are now used in almost everything. However, the power that peptides have in skin care wasn’t realized until earlier this decade. In 2004, HydroPeptide® became the first skin care company to incorporate peptides into every product. Currently, the HydroPeptide® collection includes 19 different peptides to boost collagen and fight wrinkles.

What are peptides? Peptides are cell messengers that nourish, repair, and send neural-messages, which naturally stimulate diminished collagen and other important skin tissues as well as relax repetitive wrinkle-causing facial expressions. Peptides are found in nature, but are lab-enhanced for safety, maximum efficacy and stability. HydroPeptide® is the first skin care company to include peptides into every product and includes them at the highest clinical concentrations. This is significant because different peptides stimulate different collagen, elastin, and other parts of the skin matrix. One of the great aspects of peptides is their versatility. These cell messengers provide restorative results as well as preventative benefits.
“Having peptides in every HydroPeptide® product gives our company a distinct advantage over others,” said Dr. Louise Peck, PhD and founder of HydroPeptide®. “The results peptides provide are cumulative, so having them in every product makes perfect sense. The 19 peptides in our collection are the most scientifically advanced and are what make HydroPeptide® so effective.”

HydroPeptide® products will PURIFY, RELAX, NOURISH, STIMULATE, HYDRATE and PROTECT skin addressing all aspects of the Simply Ageless Skin Key™. The Simply Ageless Skin Key™ is a stress free guide to looking ageless. The founder of HydroPeptide®, Dr. Louise Peck, believes anti-aging products must tackle each aspect to effectively counter-act aging. HydroPeptide® simplifies life by addressing as many elements as possible in as few steps as possible. Go to to learn more.

HydroPeptide® products are available in prestige retail locations nationwide and at Paraben free. Phthlate free. Formulated for all skin types. Not tested on animals.
