‘Tis the season for infinite family gatherings, overly crowded shopping malls, extreme traffic jams and, of course, overindulgent holiday eating.
The month of December is often characterized by an overbooked calendar brought on by an extensive number of social gatherings held in a short period of time. Whether you’re the host or the guest at such festivities, the presence of food remains a constant factor, leading to another phenomenon known as holiday weight gain.
Packing on the pounds can be tough to avoid this time of year, but that’s what New Year’s resolutions are for, right?
Don’t let the stress of the season get you down; enjoy your time with family and friends, celebrate and reflect on all the memories of the past year, and please, don’t be a scrooge.
