Is this the Perfect Diet for the Holidays?

 When researchers ran this diet study I read about in Time, I doubt they had the holidays on their mind. But their results came out JUST in time to keep you from gaining a massive amount of weight this month . . . maybe.

--The University Hospital in South Manchester, England has figured out a new diet style, and it sounds like the PERFECT way to manage holiday parties, meals, and gravy.

--They found that if people significantly cut carbs just two days a week, it's more effective for weight loss than trying to cut calories every day.

--They had one group in the study eat a 1,500-calorie-per-day diet. The other group ate their normal diet . . . except twice a week, they didn't eat any carb-heavy foods like bread, pasta, potatoes, or rice.

--And they found that people who cut carbs just twice a week lost almost TWICE as much weight in four months as people who just tried cutting back a bit every DAY.

--So how can this apply to the holidays?

--Go ahead and have some really ridiculous meals . . . but during those days of the week when you're NOT at parties or dinners, cut out carbs and you could have your least bulky Christmas ever.
