Tis the season to be healthy

It's the time of the year for sweets, treats and delicious foods.

While the food is delightful the extra calories can pack on some weight.

The average American gains 1-2 pounds over the holidays, which can add up over time.

Join Civilian Health Personnel Services this month and learn ways to stay healthy and trim during the holidays.
