The holidays are a time when most people are “social feasting” as I like to call it and in doing so creating internal conflict on whether or not to try to stick to a diet during the holidays. Their usual train of thought is: I’ll just wait until after New Years to make a resolution.
The scary statistic is that 92% of New Years resolutions will fail. That means only 8% will succeed! See, I can do math.
Here is some more math, the average American gains .4-1.8 pounds during the holidays and gains 1.2-3.6 pounds per year. In some cases that means most of your weightgain happens between Thanksgiving and New Years. Maybe it’s time to put down that reindeer shaped surgar cookie.
