TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - During this holiday season, it is easy to pack on the pounds.

Many people will gain from their eating habits during the holidays because of food selection.

The studio manager at Orange Fitness says there is no quick fixes. Taking it slow and getting back in to your old routine she says is the best way to take on the new year.

Juli Pucklett goes on to say that finding a gym family can make the gym a lot more comfortable.

Getting in shape is one of those timeless New Year's resolutions, especially after eating all that food over the past month's celebrations.

Local experts say nutrition also plays a huge role in weight loss. One way you can succeed is to develop a healthy eating plan and eat the right portion sizes.

"Burn more calories than you put in. Very very simple," said Menia Chester. "If you know that you are gonna be eating a lot of things that have more calories in them take a smaller portion size. So just use your portion sizes even use a smaller plate, it's good too."

Experts also say you should do a variety of exercises.

Short bursts of high-intensity exercises have been shown to burn fat better than long stretches of cardio.
