The holidays aren’t easy on a lot of things—including waistlines. On average, most people gain at least one pound each holiday season, and while it may not seem like much, it adds up. And people who are already overweight tend to gain more.
That’s a trend Kaiser Permanente is trying to prevent. The health care giant has launched a campaign called Maintain Don’t Gain that provides employers and their employees tips for staying healthy during the holiday season. The campaign really comes down to promoting the message of prevention and healthy lifestyles to employers, explains Jennifer Christian-Herman, executive director, Healthworks product management and innovation.
