Scary October Surprise Weight Gain
How it happens and how to fight it!
Summer is over, temperatures fall, scales go up, and we can now where hoodies to cover up, but what makes this time of year tougher for those pursuing fitness goals, is the fact that we have 3 months in a row that revolve around eating....let's just say....not optimal food choices. This combined with the tendency to stay indoors and decrease activity leads to the extra holiday pounds that we all try to lose in January. There is even scientific research to support this from the New England Journal of Medicine You can find that here. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc1602012
Some sources say, depending on your region, that weight gains can be as low as 1.5 lbs, but some can gain up to 10lbs over the holidays. It all happens very slowly.
