Infographic focuses on the subtle sabotage of everyday mistakes dieters make
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/24/2013 -- It is no secret that the holidays is a prime time to see the scale tip unfavorably for many individuals. During the winter period, especially during the holidays, people tend to be less active and eat more feel-good foods as the cold weather rolls through. The colder weather also naturally has individuals burning less calories as they handle daily affairs, again due to the colder temperatures. Once the holidays are over it is time to get serious about losing those unwanted pounds that have been packed on. That is why BetterBodyJournal.com has noted some key yet subtle weight factors within a infographic, which are often overlooked by those who are looking to shed the pounds.
The first factor that is almost always overlooked is the general inactivity of an individual during the colder months. Warmth is something individuals naturally gravitate toward, and when it is cold outside, people find it more relaxing and enjoyable to simply stay bundled or avoid the sometimes abrasiveness cold. By doing so, they often end up missing out on calories they might have otherwise burned during the warmer times of the year. The Better Body Journal infographic points out that nearly 66% of all Americans simply do not meet the minimal requirements for working out.
The infographic points to another common subtle cause of weight-gain, which is drinking alcoholic beverages. This is another factor that rises during the holiday period due to the number of gatherings and social affairs people attend. Alcohol does not only make it harder for the body to process calories. Drinking also often stores plenty of empty calories, as well as causes one to become uninterested in workouts the following day. This all equates to more poundage during the festive time of year.
Better Body Journal's infographic also notes that television viewing often comes with the saddled baggage of high-calorie snacking, which can be a huge area of calorie retention. To avoid the extra pounds, one may simply need to avoid the sheer amount of time watching television, and especially make an attempt to avoid eating poor food choices in front of it.
Finally, the BetterBodyJournal.com urges individuals to not be swayed by misleading labels and food claims. The best way to know how good a food is, is to read its ingredients and be aware of its overall content. Simply because one uses a low-fat sour cream on their potatoes over the holidays does not mean it did not add to their weight gain.
