Thanksgiving marks the start of a 6 week period where we are bombarded with strategies to burn off the dreaded holiday weight gain.

Many of these holiday weight loss tips, tricks and strategies are just time wasters.


Because no matter how COOL these strategies sound as a headline on a magazine cover, many will do nothing to help you TRULY burn off and avoid added holiday fat.

Just about every article states that in order to all you have to do is Burn More Calories.
