Holiday Eating Tips and Recipes
Felicia Drury Kliment has released her annual online holiday eating tips and recipes. Kliment offers these tips to help her readers with holiday health problems like dieting, weight gain and gastro-intestinal complications. These holiday tips and recipes will help readers to maintain their healthy lifestyle when confronted with rich, unhealthy mounds of food that are impossible to resist.
"Undigested, acidic food waste causes our bodies to put on pounds because the body attempts to protect itself by converting the waste into fat and storing it in the fat cells," Kliment said.
Kliment claims that a perfect solution to this problem does exist and that it is still possible to prevent the unhealthy effects of overeating the wrong foods. She advises that readers consume a few slices of fresh pineapple before, during or after they eat. Pineapple has such tremendous digestive power that it continues to ripen after it has been cut up.
"Carry a small Ziploc bag of sliced pineapple and eat a few pieces right before you sit down to a holiday meal," says Kliment. "You will be amazed by the results when you don't gain weight or suffer from acid reflux during the holidays."
