The holiday season is upon us, presenting us with numerous opportunities to indulge and perhaps a little less time to exercise.  But if we want to avoid being among those whose New Year’s resolution is to drop a few holiday pounds, it’s important that we try to stick to some semblance of a routine.

We’re not saying you can’t enjoy some eggnog at your holiday office party – or even a few nibbles of a traditional holiday gingerbread house, Christmas pudding or bûche de noel. But if you’re taking in extra calories, you have to find ways to burn them off.  We know the weather doesn’t always cooperate this time of year, but there are plenty of ways to exercise indoors.

We hope you enjoy all of the wonderful things the holiday season has to offer – from spending time with friends and family to volunteering in your local community.  And if you’re keeping an eye on what you eat and drink this holiday season, our industry provides myriad beverage choices in a wide range of calories, all of which can be part of a healthy diet. And like Sip & Savor mentioned yesterday, our industry is voluntarily putting calorie labels on the front of every bottle, can and pack we produce, making it easier for consumers to make informed choices about the beverages that are best for themselves and their families. Clear on Calories is just another tool to help you out this holiday season and throughout the year.
