Holiday weight gain

Eating Habit During the Holidays With the holiday season in full swing, many of us become concerned about how we will keep from packing on unwanted pounds!  Recently Dr. Mercola offered some suggestions. He pointed out that:

  • The average American gains close to one pound during the six-week period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, while those who are overweight or obese gain an average of five pounds
  • Simple tips, such as planning out what you’ll eat at the start of each day, eating your protein at the beginning of your meal, going for a walk or reprogramming the way your brain responds to high-sugar foods can help keep your weight in check
  • Intermittent fasting can also help you avoid weight gain and also normalize hormones related to weight and metabolism, such as insulin and ghrelin
  • Achieving and maintaining your ideal weight isn’t something to think about exclusively during the holidays; it should be more of a year-round consideration
