The holiday season is always filled with tasty temptations, so it's not surprising that seasonal party fare, including decadent desserts, can lead to overdoing it in the diet department if you're not careful. Even people who maintain a healthy weight tend to gain about a pound between Thanksgiving and New Year's, while studies show that those who are overweight can put on 5 pounds or more during these five festive weeks. But you can stay on track by continuing to eat regular healthy meals and snacks and by keeping up your exercise routine throughout the holiday season. It's the best way to control your hunger and you'll be less inclined to reach for that extra cookie or piece of pie or go overboard at the buffet or dinner table.
