Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 12, 2008
As the holiday season comes to a close and the champagne glasses and party trays are put away for next year, many people are finding the high-calorie foods and beverages of the holiday season have had a serious impact on their waistlines.
"The good news about holiday weight gain is most people only gain one to two pounds during the season. However, for many, the additional pounds are never lost and those pounds can really add up over a couple of years," says Beth Hubrich, RD, with the Calorie Control Council.
In fact, the Council's 2007 consumer survey indicates 95 million Americans consider dieting a "constant concern." With so many Americans concerned about dieting it is no surprise that many are looking to technology and the Internet for tools to use in their battle of the bulge.
