Avoid 'fat' talk and to keep fights at bay

Washington, December 8 : Most unsafe topics of conversation while on a holiday or at parties is weight, it has been revealed.

Experts at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have found that discussing weight should be avoided during the holidays, as it will most likely cause hurt feelings so instead of pointing it out, you can take action by starting to eat healthy and exercise, and let them model your behavior.

The best way to help avoid gaining weight is to plan ahead, and combine the holiday with non-food activities, like walking through the neighborhood with a friend to look at the holiday decorations, or take the kids ice skating or go Christmas caroling.

Stick with the truly special treats that are most wanted this time of year while skipping out on filler snacks and foods, and make low-calorie drinks available with the meal.

Also, don't avoid sleep, as studies have shown that you might overeat when you don't get enough sleep, and you are also more likely to get sick.
