It’s that time of year, let the over-eating begin. Nutritionists said that most people pack on five to ten pounds during the holidays.

Nutrition Specialist Dennis Frank said some people get overwhelmed with holiday commitments.

There are a lot of people who are very depressed this time of year,” Frank said. “With all the joy going on there are some people who don't feel that. And gaining weight is probably just adding another burden.”

Owners of Title Boxing Club said they have noticed a slow down in the number of clients who are coming to work out too.

“Our class sizes are a little bit smaller than we would expect,” Chris Campbell, co-owner of Title Boxing Club, said.

They point to holiday parties, traveling to see family, constantly being around food and even the colder weather as reasons why people are less active.

“People suspend reality in a way because their lifestyles change,” Kim Campbell, co-owner of Title Boxing Club, said. “They get busier because of the holidays. They do more traveling. And of course we all know that we eat more.”

Kim recommends eating what you love, but not overdoing it. She said it won’t be the last time you eat a piece of pie, so you don’t need to eat half of the pie.

Dennis Frank said you should plan out how much you want to eat before you go to a party, and to eat a healthy snack before you walk out the door.

He also said to limit yourself to one alcoholic drink per party.
