Holiday Weight Gain? Start Anew with a Detox and Fast for 2023

Did you know the average American likely gained about 6 pounds during the Holiday season? Not only is this 6-pound gain unhealthy, but it can destroy motivation and sabotage all the hard work done during the year beforehand.

Why do we put on weight? There are several reasons. Here’s the truth about Holiday weight gain and what you can do now to get back on track with Dr. Colbert’s 21 Day Detox and Fast Starter System.

Study Shows Average of 6-Pound Holiday Weight Gain

A study survey conducted in 2018 of over 2000 respondents found that (1):

  • 45% planned on not trying to eat healthy during the Holiday season
  • 44% plan on eating multiple Holiday dinners in one day
  • 33% were okay with eating so much on Holidays they feel sick
  • 40% typical require looser clothes after a Holiday meal
  • 54% don’t plan on exercising at all through the
  • Only an estimated 12% will get through the end of the year without adding pounds
  • 33% have already decided on their New Year’s Resolutions; these include exercise, eating healthy, self-care, saving money, and learning a new skill

Unfortunately, this data tells a dismal story. However, you can start anew in 2023 and change your health!

The Truth About Holiday Weight Gain

Holiday weight gain typically occurs because many adults see the last 6 weeks of the year as a great excuse to overeat, slack off on exercise, and become more sedentary in general.

It’s 6 weeks of letting go of healthy habits that causes the weight gain, and not a couple extravagant meals.

Instead of finishing the year strong, many people are ready to cozy up and quit during December. They might order donuts or eat cinnamon rolls for breakfast on an ordinary day. Snacks may become Christmas cookies rather than a healthy choice. They often plan to undo any weight gain once they set their resolutions for the New Year.

New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Undo Holiday Weight Gain

The problem? There is a mountain of evidence that shows New Years’ Resolutions don’t work. Most people completely abandon them before January is over, often just after one week (2).

The mentality of feast now and resolve later, for 6 weeks, leaves many adults in a cycle of perpetual weight gain, year after year at worst. Or at best, a cycle of gaining and losing the same pounds over and over again.
