The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming — and so are the goodies and drinking that can add 10 pounds to your scale in a weekend party.

But how to keep it off? Be strong and avoid the sugary, fatty foods that will just accumulate on your waist, hips, and bottom. The booze is loaded with calories as well. Buffets are always plentiful in the upcoming season of good tidings of joy.

Try to avoid anything white — sugar, flour, pasta, bread, rice — and stick with color, that is, veggies and fruits (not chocolate and cookies). Drink 8 glasses of water a day and if you must have a spiked eggnog or champagne toast, have a small glass and sip throughout the night. Moderation may keep you safe as well.

If you slip and indulge too much, do extra exercise. Hit the gym, take a class, or go out and dance the night away:

This week’s announcement that Hostess Brands is filing for bankruptcy is filling me with mixed emotions.
Ho Hos, Twinkies, Dolly Madison, Drake’s and Eddy’s are basically junk food. I found it funny that a 1970 era commercial for Ho Hos emphasized that they were fortified with vitamins and iron. Maybe that’s why my mom stuck them in my school lunchbox back in the 70s.

Today we are smarter consumers. A diet with Twinkies and Ho Hos would do nothing but add a spare tire to our waist. Even though saying farewell to the nostalgic snack giant, founded in 1930, is better for our health, it is sad to see 18,500 jobs being lost.
