For many people, there's no question that the dawn of the holiday season also means the accrual of several unwanted pounds each year. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, the abundance of holiday cookies and treats, drinks and feasts can seem overwhelming.
While you may think that one indulgent peppermint hot chocolate during your Christmas shopping isn't so bad, a report published last fall by the New England Journal of Medicine confirmed that people in Germany, Japan and the U.S. gain weight during the holiday season. On average, Americans were found to gain 1.3 pounds throughout this festive time of year. In the United States, the biggest and most common window for weight gain was in the 10 days after Christmas. In Japan it was Golden Week and in Germany it was Easter. Regardless of the holiday, celebrations and festivities are undoubtedly linked to unhealthy habits and weight gain.
In a follow-up article discussing the report, the LA Times noted that while about 50 percent of the gained weight among participants was lost shortly after, the other half of added pounds remained through the second half of the year.
Though the weight gain was the focus of this particular study, Hallelujah Diet followers know that it's not just the pounds that matter. Trying to shake the bad habits picked up during the bliss of the Christmas season can be tough to do. One study author, Brian Wansink of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab, said, "Make an October resolution instead of a New Year's resolution."
However, we here at Hallelujah Acres practice lifelong resolutions for good health. Thus, instead of finding yourself engaging in unhealthy practices well after the holiday season is over, kick start your health today by incorporating the Hallelujah Diet Winter Detox Kit into your plant-based diet.
