Director's Message

 

Season’s Greetings! We hope you are well during this busy fall. As we enter the holidays, I was inspired to look up the latest research on holiday weight gain and obesity. Some good news is that we think we gain more than we actually do. People’s perceived holiday weight gain averages three and a half pounds, but their actual weight gain is just one pound. Some bad news is that the seemingly modest one-pound holiday gain increases blood pressure and sticks around after the holiday season, adding to lifetime risk of obesity. We did a study to identify the factors that helped prevent holiday weight gain. What mattered most was paying attention. People who keep track of their weight, eating and activity were most successful at holiday weight control. Awareness is a critical ingredient of health.
