Americans Expect to Gain Eight Pounds Over the Holidays

Most Americans can expect to gain about eight pounds over the holidays.

The fourth annual ‘Writing Off the End of the Year’ survey conducted by OnePoll is revealing that people expect an average weight gain up a pound from last year.

Half of Americans have broken a diet to give in to the temptation of holiday foods.

However, most respondents were not worried about their weight.

Ninety percent stated that they planned on enjoying the holiday season without the worry of maintaining a healthy diet.
