The best time of the year that I really look my best and feel healthiest is during the summer months. Wintertime, however, I really pack on the pounds with most of it piling up in the belly region. I become a slug. I blame it on my upbringing in northern Maine and instinctive 'hibernation' preparation to layer on the fat to keep from freezing important body parts off. If you're from the north you know exactly what I'm talking about.

My challenge during the winter solstice is to actually lose weight. But honestly, I hate to work out when it's cold. So I searched on-line for ways to hide the beer belly. And guess what? I found an awesome video that will help all of us out. Just don't let me catch you wearing the 'man-girdle' that you'll see at the end of the video.

Rock on, chubs!
