Holiday Weight Hard to Come Off

Many Americans are finding that the weight they gain during the holidays stubbornly does not come off at the start of the new year. According to a recent article in PLOS One Journal, this is because people wind up consuming MORE calories after Christmas!!! During the holiday season, people consume more calories than usual as they go to parties, buffets and large family feasts. However, they don’t stop purchasing junk food at the start of the new year, even though they start purchasing three times as many healthier foods, like fruits and vegetables. Therefore, the consumption of healthy foods increased but consumption of non-healthy foods remained constant. This results in Americans eating 14% more calories and spending $20 more on each shopping trip than before the Christmas holiday! Yikes! Start 2015 off right and keep away from sugary fattening foods to get yourself back on the right track!
