The Best Secrets for Staying Fit During the Holidays

We traded in rosé for spiked cider and watermelon sorbet for pumpkin pie (just the smell of cinnamon has us salivating) a while ago, but we're only now realizing that the holiday season's mouth-watering indulgences can come at a higher calorie count, jeopardizing our formerly healthy diets.
