BROOKLYN - Some people are making sure they take extra steps to prevent unwanted winter weight gain as the holidays approach.

The "Cooking Matters" program helps low-income families make healthy, inexpensive meals. The program advises adding as many colorful fruits and vegetables to a meal as possible and cutting what's on a plate into sections.

Mark Ryan, of Gold's Gym, says any kind of cardiovascular exercise that will get the heart rate up and help an individual burn calories is key as well.
