Sure, we’re told to “fall back” in early autumn, but that doesn’t mean you have to be negligent with your healthy eating and fitness goals. So how does one battle the blues in the face of gray skies, dipping temperatures, and the urge to crawl back under the covers on dark, dismal mornings?

Here are seven tips for avoiding fall weight gain…

 

1. Fall Back—Don’t Be Lax with your Health

According to research from the National Eating Disorders Association, Americans tend to “fall” into bad habits come autumn, which means they tend to exercise less and eat more—compared to any other time of the year.

However, packing away your swimsuit and retreating into hibernation for winter isn’t really an option for we humans. Fight the urge to hit the sofa after work (I realize it’s tough when you leave the office shrouded in darkness) and make a stop on your commute at the gym or take a brisk walk or run prior to settling in for the night.
