The Average Weight Gain in Dec. is Five Pounds
The Thanksgiving-through-New Year's season is the biggest EATING SEASON of the year . . . and that's saying something, since we're a country that likes its eating.
So what's the damage? According to a new survey, the average weight gain in December is . . . four to five pounds.
Here are the top five reasons people gave for gaining weight during the holiday season.
#1.) More social gatherings.
#2.) More rich comfort foods available.
#3.) More stress.
#4.) A limited selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
#5.) Less physical activity.
