They dedicate hours to the gym and practically starve themselves, but then grow discouraged and ultimately relapse into destructive behavior like binge eating. Can you relate?

Here's a guest post by our amazing nutritionist, Meghan Doherty! 14 Tips to Skip Holiday Weight Gain What causes the dreadful 5-10 pounds that most American adults gain from October to January each and every year?

Here's how you can avoid gaining weight and losing your progress:
