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.

What do you think?  Will you be eating more than you normally would during the holidays?  Are you going to try to do anything about it, or are you going to wait to get back on track til the new year?

Eatingly yours,
