    The holiday season is notorious for breaking up
    otherwise healthy eating and
    exercise
    habits. 
  
  
    But strong habits and good planning can help prevent
    holiday overindulgence, according to Sebastien Lagree, personal
    trainer to A-List stars like Meghan
    Markle, Michelle
    Obama, and Kim
    Kardashian.
  
  
    Eating before your big meal, drinking plenty of water,
    and making time for just five minutes of exercise a day can
    help keep you healthy and fit.  
  
  
    And, if you're generally healthy, a day or two of
    festivities won't do any lasting harm to diet or exercise
    goals, so don't stress.
