This ideal is within the reach of everyone. Stories in Fight Fat with Fat by Dr. Salerno’s patients confirm the seemingly miraculous results a proper diet has on a person’s overall health.

Fight Fat with Fat presents Dr. John Salerno’s adaptation of the well-known Atkins low-carb diet for today’s lifestyle. The Fight Fat with Fat diet works!

CHRISTINE CARTER - HAPPINESS EXPERT - KEEPING THE “HAPPY” IN HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Happiness Expert Dr. Christine Carter Discusses Practical Tips For Happily Navigating the Busy, Overwhelming Season

For many, the holiday season triggers a mix of feelings: we’re excited for it to arrive, yet often end up feeling overwhelmed once it does. During these months when the desire to feel happy and the use of the word itself prevail, Dr. Christine Carter, sociologist and happiness expert, says you CAN take steps to make the holiday season happier – and less overwhelming.

5 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOLIDAYS HAPPIER -- EVEN IF YOU ARE SUPER BUSY

The holidays are, at best, a mixed-bag for most people when it comes to happiness. We tend to look forward to this time of year, only to feel overwhelmed when it comes. Here are five science-based ways to make the holiday season happier--and less overwhelming--this year.

#1: Trade high expectations for big appreciation. Do you have high hopes about what will make this holiday season a good one? Unfortunately, unmet expectations often make us feel disappointed or even resentful. The reality is that unless we consciously cultivate gratitude, we are more likely to feel frustrated when we don’t get what we want than we are to feel grateful when we do. Turn this “abundance paradox” on it’s head. First, watch for where your expectations are keeping you from enjoying yourself. Then, make an effort to find something about the situation that you truly appreciate. Disappointment rarely makes for happy holidays, but gratitude can bring joy to the world.

#2: Create a giving trifecta (or make every gift you buy help someone in need). A mountain of research shows that giving to others -- particularly those in need -- makes us happier, so I’m always looking for ways to buy my Christmas gifts from retailers that donate money to causes I believe in. For example, this year I’m going to purchase gifts through the AmazonSmile program using my Chase Freedom card. This creates a giving trifecta: First, I get a gift for someone on my Christmas list; second, AmazonSmile donates a percentage of my purchase to a charity I love (the Tipping Point Community, a local non-profit that fights poverty); and third, I’ll also donate the 5% cash back I get from the Freedom card to Tipping Point.

#3: Lower your standards. This is a busy time of year, and something’s got to give. Let it be the little things. Even though I prefer homemade meals, I become very dependent on inexpensive prepared foods from Trader Joe’s at this time of year. Similarly, I’ve lowered my fashion standards so much that I basically wear the same outfit in different slightly different colors every day.  And I’ve stopped being such a perfectionist when it comes to gift giving; although I’d prefer to exquisitely wrap each gift in handmade paper, I get hives just thinking about having to wait in line at the post office to mail those gifts. This year I’m letting Amazon do my shipping and wrapping (see tip #2)!

#4: Have a go-to way to say no. We tend to have more invitations to events and parties, more opportunities to volunteer, and more people asking us to help out during the holidays than we could ever possibly accept. When we accept too many invitations, tempting as they might be, we eventually become too exhausted to enjoy the season. It helps to have (and practice!) a go-to way to say no. Mine is the strangely effective, “Thank you so much for asking, but that isn’t going to work out for me right now.”

#5: Put your to-do list on your calendar. One of the things that can detract from our happiness is our extra-long long task-list. Researchers used to think that worry about unfinished tasks was our unconscious mind trying to

FOOD NETWORK'S CLAIRE ROBINSON OFFERS TIPS AND TRICKS FOR DELICIOUS THANKSGIVING DISHES AND HOW TO “SHARE A MEAL” WITH FAMILIES IN NEED 

Thanksgiving is a great time to entertain with friends and family – it’s also a time to think about giving back to those less fortunate.  As we enjoy delicious seasonal favorites from turkey casseroles to pumpkin pies, it’s difficult to fathom that there are 16 million children in America struggling with hunger – that’s the population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago combined.  This holiday season, Unilever Project Sunlight has a simple way you can help.

Claire Robinson, host of the Food Network’s “5 Ingredient Fix” will share some of her top tips and tricks to create savory fall favorites  and how to give back to the people who need it most – at the very same time. When you buy any Unilever product – including Thanksgiving holiday essentials like Hellmann’s and Country Crock – the company will give that same item to a family in need through Feeding America as part of the Unilever Project Sunlight “Share A Meal” program.

More about Claire Robinson:
Claire Robinson is the host of “5 Ingredient Fix,” a Food Network series featuring delicious, eclectic recipes made with five ingredients or fewer. Claire was previously the host of “Food Network Challenge,” bringing her culinary knowledge and passion for the iconic show to its brand-new set and providing minute-by-minute detail for the thrilling challenges. Claire also spent time working on production teams for Food Network’s “Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello” and PBS’s “Everyday Baking for Everyday Food.” More information about Claire can be found on her website, claire-robinson.com and her Twitter @clairerobinson5.

More about the Unilever Project Sunlight and Feeding America Partnership:
In the past 5 years Unilever has helped to distribute more than 30 million meals to children and families in need through its partnership with Feeding America. This holiday season Unilever Project Sunlight will donate up to 100,000 meals to Feeding America to children and families in need.

Did you know just over half of the dogs and 60 percent of the cats in America are overweight or obese?*

  • Which supplements enhance your pet’s skin and coat; help with weight management, vitality and digestion?
  • The trend that appeals to the “wild” in your animal.
