They think that we will eat now, gain now and lose later. This is THE NUMBER ONE REASON the average person gains 15 pounds during the holidays. Do not allow other people to rob you from feeling good. #7: Lacking knowledge; we do not do our homework and learn how many calories we are eating and drinking. We do not learn and study what we eat and this lack of knowledge is the main reason we choose to drink a high calorie drinks or eat a high calorie meals. We just did not know.
