 Talking About Weight the Most Dangerous Topic on Holidays and at Parties

Talking about weight has been found to be the most dangerous topic when on a holiday or at a party, a new study conducted by researchers at University of Alabama at Birmingham said, adding that the topic was most likely to lead to hurt feelings.

The best way to help avoid gaining weight is to plan ahead, and combine the holiday with non-food activities, like walking through the neighborhood with a friend to look at the holiday decorations, or take the kids ice skating or go Christmas caroling.

Stick with the truly special treats that are most wanted this time of year while skipping out on filler snacks and foods, and make low-calorie drinks available with the meal.

Also, don't avoid sleep, as studies have shown that you might overeat when you don't get enough sleep, and you are also more likely to get sick.
