51% of annual weight gain happens between Thanksgiving and New Years.
Here are 12 scientifically-backed ways you can avoid weight gain this season from Brian Wansink, Ph.D.and the Cornell Food Lab:
1. Survey first. Do a loop around the buffet and decide what you really want to eat rather than taking a little of everything you don't hate.
2. Always sit to eat. If you only eat when you are sitting, you'll mindlessly munch less.
