Christmas Weight Gain Can Last for Many Months After
A new study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, finds that Christmas weight gain may last for months. The scientists found that in nearly 3,000 adults from across three countries there was up to 0.6% increase in weight gain during ten days after Christmas compared to the 10 days before Christmas.
Moreover, researchers discovered that by the following summer, the subjects taking part in the research had only lost about half of the weight gained over the winter holidays.
The Royal Society for Public Health in the United Kingdom notes that people in the UK can consume up to 6,000 calories a day, which is three times higher than recommended calorie intake. Also, these calories are hard to burn – burning off the calories from Christmas dinner would take 1 hour and 40 minutes of running, the scientists warn.
