What’s Your Holiday Health IQ? (Quiz)

  • 4 of 6

Answer #3: TRUE. A study by Pennsylvania State University found that when people ate among friends or family, they consumed about 50 percent more than if they were alone or among strangers. One theory? Drinking and watching others indulge lowers your resolve, while conversation prolongs the meal and distracts us from being aware of how much we’re eating.

Answer #4: A., Soup. A study conducted by Baylor College of Medicine in Houston found that people who consumed a bowl of hot soup before meals ate less, lost more weight, and kept it off longer. Try these cold-weather soups to keep you warm—and full.

I hope I don't end of gaining THAT much weight between now and New Years because my 33rd birthday is just 12 DAYS AFTER New Year's!

So Vicki, how is it you use a computer and the internet and call yourself green? Do you know you can NOT be green while using technology?

People need to grow up and realize that there is no such thing as living "green". We can all make choices to reduce our environmental impact, but in the end, EVERYONE contributes to environmental problems. Even the Amish, who use no electricity, buy products and deal with the "outside" world, and thereby increase their impact.

And just for some enlightenment:

It is soooooooo easy to talk the talk, Diane, but how many people can actullay walk the walk?
You get invitations to dinners, people start cooking you dishes that they dont usually cook, there are always amazing desserts and drinks, so even if you promise yourself you are not going to gain weight, you probably will :/

There's really no reason to stuff one's self on Thanksgiving. Why not enjoy the food's of the season and share with someone instead of stuffing yourself to excess?

Why not Tofurkey and not kill for a holiday? Wouldn't that be the kinder and more focused thing to do? Do you know that you can NOT be green while eating meat?

People need to evolve and become more humane!
