For all of us holidays, especially around Christmas is the season where we meet our family, friends and enjoy the time together. It is also the time when we tend to eat a lot, especially high calorie, high fat rich food items like pastries or meat based dishes. And then once we are done with the holiday, and get ready to return to our normal lives, we find a couple of pounds have been added to our weight. All this is primarily because of eating too much in a short span of time without any control. A lot of people face this issue of not being able to control their weight during the holiday season and end up starving or going on fad diets, which will only make them ill and weak.
