Never Too Early To Ward Off Winter Weight Gain 

Labor Day signifies the end of summer and before you know it the winter weather will be upon us.It’s that time of year where folks tend to put on extra weight during these months where we’re less active.Local gym owners, like Crystal Blount owner of Curves in Waterville, are encouraging people to get a jump on a diet and exercise routine to try and avoid the winter weight gain.Keeping a food diary of what you’re eating and committing to a 30-minute-a-day exercise routine can help people keep those dreaded pounds away. There’s some other things you can do in your day-to-day life that can also make a difference.”Taking the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Even another one that I try to encourage my members to do is during a commercial when you’re watching TV at night, get up and walk around your house. And not just going to the refrigerator,” Blount said.Choosing a diet and exercise routine that doesn’t leave you hungry or overtired is also recommended.
