Tips to avoid weight gain

How much weight do Americans gain a year during the Holidays?

Although it was believed that Americans gain a lot of weight during the Holidays, in reality Americans gain only about a pound during the winter holiday season. However, this extra weight accumulates through the years and may be a major contributor to obesity later in life.

How much weight do we gain during winter holidays?

Although it is commonly believed  that people gain 7 to 10 pounds over a holiday season, but the actual weight gained by most people is one pound. 

Cumulative weight gain

Since the holiday weight gain, although small if you just take one year, can add up over time leading to significant weight gain later in life.

Difficult pounds to shed!

Studies have shown that most people do not succeed in losing these extra pounds that easy during the summer months and the cumulative effects of yearly weight gain during the fall and winter are likely to contribute to the substantial increase in body weight that frequently occurs later in life!

Alarming Obesity and Overweight Statistics

According to the data from Centers for Disease Control, obesity and overweight status affects up to 69% of all adults in the United States!

Overweight and Obesity Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

CDC Adult OBesity Statistics

  • 35.1% percent of adults age 20 years and over are obese in the United States in 2011-2012!
  • Taking both overweight and obesity together, 69% of all adults age 20 years and over are overweight or obese (2011-2012)

CDC children and adolescents

  • 18.4% (2009-2010) percent of adolescents age 12-19 years who are obese
  • 18.0% (2009-2010) percent of children age 6-11 years who are obese
  • 12.1% (2009-2010) percent of children age 2-5 years who are obese

How to avoid weight gain during the Holidays and rest of the year?

W8MD's 8 tips to avoid holiday weight gain!

  1. Focus on the protein, not the starch. Remember, fat is not your enemy, especially the unsaturated fats which are healthy fats!
  2. Drink a glass of water before you start your meal and up to 8 glasses of water a day!
  3. Avoid skipping meals as this sends the starvation signals to the body leading slowing of metabolism and compensatory over-eating at the next meal!
  4. Start the day right with a protein based meal such as egg whites or other source of protein and never skip breakfast!
  5. Build physical activity in your daily routine - you need 8,000 steps a day or more!
  6. Limit screen time to no more than 2 hours for kids and 4 hours for adults including TV, tablet, computer screens, smart phones etc. Work screen time excluded!
  7. Do not arrive hungry to a meal! Never eat until you feel stuffed, never go hungry! The body needs nutrition, especially protein on constant basis as the muscle tissue recycles!
  8. If you did gain a couple of pounds like most Americans during the Holidays, remember W8MD(w'eight'MD) medical weight loss centers of America's unique insurance physician weight loss and sleep wellness programs available in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania!

How can W8MD medical weight loss centers help?

W8MD is a physician supervised, evidence based non surgical medical weight loss and wellness program with offices in many states in the United States and most W8MD weight loss centers accept health insurance for the weight loss physician visits unlike the many "cash only" weight loss programs.

As one of the very few medical weight loss programs willing to work with health insurance for the physician weight loss visits, W8MD medical weight loss programs in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other places have helped thousands reach their weight loss goals!*

Dr. Tumpati and staff were very courteous. The doctor took time to explain my condition, the methods to treat it, and his recommendation for treatment in my particular case. I was not rushed in and out in 5 minutes as with many other doctors. I would recommend Dr. Tumpati to others - Verified patient!
