This is a rough time of year to try to watch what you eat.  If you're going to watch anything, it's 20,000 calories worth of desserts and booze going into your mouth. Oh Yes, those Holiday parties and dinners!

According to a new survey, we basically "write off" the end of the year when it comes to our health and our diets.

41% of people use the holidays as a reason to punt on healthy habits and one in three have already started postponing those habits until January.



The survey also found 47% of people say they already know they'll give in and break their diet during the holiday season.  The top foods that we break our diet for are cookies, pies, and cakes and home-cooked holiday meals.

30% of people say they've had a moment during the holidays where they've unbuttoned their pants because they ate too much.

And overall, the average American will gain SIX pounds over the next month-and-a-half.  That's the same amount of weight we packed on last year.
