Thank you, Gill. This is interesting. I cut down to 800 calories the Monday after Thanksgiving, and it did help.

Some of my fellow Spanglers might be interested to read this blog from Dr John Douillard - he offers the suggestions of reducing calories for two days a week (to about 750 kcals) to prevent weight gain during the holiday season. I'm not sure I could be disciplined enough to do this - but I'm tempted to give it a try.

PS - the 'study' referred to is not scientifically sound as it was only 22 people! But - it's still pause for thought I think. There is a link to the study at the end of the blog - it was 22 overweight people who were in the study, and it concludes

"These preliminary findings suggest that this intermittent energy restriction intervention might support weight management efforts and help promote metabolic health during the winter holiday season."
