Studies have shown that during the months of December and January, many people gain at least one pound … every year. Why? One main reason is that besides being less active during the winter months, we also turn to comfort foods to get us through those dark, dreary winter days.
In order to prevent that one pound per year weight gain that can be so hard to come off, the following foods should be avoided or at least eaten in extreme moderation:
Macaroni and cheese
Cream based soups and bisques
Cream and cheese based casseroles
Pies with whipped cream and/or ice cream
French fries, chili cheese fries, onion rings
Creamy pot pies (with pastry top and bottom)
Just by making some slight alterations and by avoiding these fattening foods you will see that you will not only feel better but you can prevent packing on those unwanted pounds, too.
