| Filed under: Exclusives!FitnessAdam Ernster

You don't have to! We swear!

We're not alone either. Celebrity trainer Adam Ernster thinks fears of gaining weight over the holidays are completely unfounded and slightly irrational.

If you're one of those people who associates the holiday season with an extra 10 pounds around your torso, the first step toward reversing that trend is to STOP assuming you're going to gain weight! Ha!

Remember, the only person who controls how much your body weighs is YOU! Don't use your Christmas vacation as an excuse to derail from a healthy diet and avoid the gym.

Despite the popular idiom, it is possible have your cake and eat it too. Enjoy the family gatherings, parties, and other holiday functions that come equipped with dietary temptations, but continue working toward your fitness goals!

Check out the video above for some common sense advice to avoid this fabled holiday weight that people are always making small talk about!

How To Help Friends Lose Weight

| Filed under: Exclusives!FitnessAdviceAdam Ernster

Considering our country is plagued with obesity, we all probably know a family member, friend, or loved one who is overweight. We've also probably had the urge to help them lose the extra pounds, but HOW do we do it?

FitPerez correspondent and celebrity personal trainer Adam Ernster is here to give advice on how to properly approach the issue.

First of all, remember that before you decide to "help" someone lose weight, they have to WANT to lose weight!

Second of all, if you know they are overweight, it's safe to assume they do too. Don't remind them of the problem before they are ready to face it.

As good as your intentions may be, if they aren't executed properly they may backfire. Too much pressure to change can make them run away from the problem and back to emotional eating.

Check out the video above to learn what to do and NOT to do when trying to help a friend lose weight!

| Filed under: FitnessFast FoodAdviceAdam Ernster

"Use common sense!"

That's the best rule of advice here — but Adam Ernster also makes a good observation that you should stay away from soda and fries, and make sure whatever you're eating has more protein in it than fat.

All fast food restaurants are required to have their nutritional values, though sometimes you have to ask for the little pamphlet!

Thanks, Adam!
