Avoiding the “Holiday Heft”November 20, 2008 | Posted by admin
Each year, as the presents pile up under the tree, the snow banks pile up on the roadside, people notice something else piling up… additional pounds. According to CNN, over 70 percent of the U.S. population will gain weight over the holiday season. It’s hard to resist all the tempting treats constantly offered – the cookies and candy that seem to always be an arm’s reach away, a second (or third) helping of Aunt Mary’s special casserole at the family’s holiday dinner, and maybe another “small” slice of pie.We rationalize these indulgences by telling ourselves that it only happens once a year… but getting that weight off seems to take a good portion of the next year.
Was it worth it?
