At what time of year do people typically gain weight?

During the holidays, experts say, Americans gain anywhere between one and five pounds on average.  Further, the 10-day stretch between the Christmas and New Year holidays is the most common time of year people gain weight. A lot of excess weight can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other health problems, so try to manage your intake during this merry season.
