The Holiday Season does bring some tasty treats!!

posted by Jake McBride - 

The holidays will be here before you know it, and while some people look forward to spending time with family, or even getting gifts, let’s face it, the thing we are most looking forward to is the food.

It’s no secret that the holidays can wreck havoc on our diets, and most of us usually feel bad about it. A new survey by Quest Nutrition finds that 87% of Americans admit the experience increased food cravings over the holiday season, with 97% giving into those cravings, and 26% giving into them every time the opportunity arises. And while all that food may taste yummy, another 75% of people say they feel guilty after they’ve succumbed to that craving.

So, what holiday foods do people crave most? Believe it or not, chocolate chip cookies are the thing people give into the most (44%), followed by pumpkin pie (41%). But not every craving is sweet. In fact 39% of people crave mashed potatoes, while 36% crave turkey.
