PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare and TV Personality and busy mom of two, Samantha Harris, are pleased to announce the launch of Let's Fight Holiday Fat - a new, free online guide that provides weight maintenance support for Americans trying to squeeze in healthy eating and exercise this season. The tool, created courtesy of alli® - the first and only FDA-approved weight-loss aid available without a prescription – is for anyone interested in overcoming the holidays and being weight-loss ready for 2013.
"My life is pretty hectic – and I know I'm not alone when I say the holidays can be a stressful and tempting time to derail or delay weight maintenance goals. For the millions of Americans who will resolve to lose weight next year, simply sticking to a healthy regimen and not gaining pounds in December can be a struggle," said Samantha Harris. "That's why I'm excited to partner with and help launch LetsFightHolidayFat.com. The healthy holiday alternative recipes are reduced calorie, low-fat and delicious, and the fitness videos are easy for anyone to follow along at home."
LetsFightHolidayFat.com combines three core elements for the weight conscious during the holidays: diet, physical activity and motivation in an easy-to-use interface. It helps track goals and prepare for long-term success with features including:
- Follow-along fitness videos; from cross training to yoga / pilates
- Healthy (reduced calorie, low-fat) daily meal suggestions and recipes
- Custom calorie and activity tracking
- Community and social features and forums
- Smart phone accessibility
- Expert tips and tricks
