December, 2003 -- If you think that the danger of an expanded waistline is over with Thanksgiving, the bad news is that it is too early to relax! In a survey conducted by eDiets.com (8,690 respondents), 57% of the respondents say they overeat more in late December than in late November. The survey also found that nearly 60% of them just “give in and eat.” The good news is that 18% say they avoid overeating by focusing on a hobby when tempted while another 16% exercise to deal with the urge to overeat.|
The survey found that only a mere 11% of respondents cited turkey as the chief source of temptation for holiday overeating while desserts at nearly 37% and cookies/candies at 27% were the big winners as the most tempting foods.
Of those surveyed, 70% acknowledge that they will put on some weight during the holidays although 42% of those claim that it will be less than 3 pounds. Perhaps optimistically, 30% claim not to expect any weight gain.
When asked for opinions on which celebrities would eat the most and least if invited for dinner, a majority (51%) cited basketball star Shaquille O’Neal as a big eater while supermodel Naomi Campbell was cited as one who would eat least.
