A Serious Diet Meets the Holidays

"Ed Levine's Serious Diet, Week 99: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Serious Eaters"
Serious Eats (December 25, 2009)

"All right, all right, serious eaters. I am going to dispense with the usual blow-by-blow, bite-by-bite, food-by-food description of all the temptations I've been confronted by this holiday season, because let's face it, you've already heard most of it. And frankly, I'm sure all of you are tempted by the same kinds of things this holiday season.

"Everyone is confronted by too many cookies, too much chocolate, too many baked goods of every stripe imaginable...."

If I'm reading Mr. Levine's profile right, he lives in New York City. America is one of those places where food is quite inexpensive, quite a few people work sitting down, and they have quite a bit of disposable income.

Over-eating and under-exercising are a fairly common problem.

Kudos to Ed Levine, for sharing his experiences on the way down: weigh-wise, that is.

Particularly if you life in the 50 states, you'll probably find reminders of your holiday experiences.

He makes a request, which I'll pass along: "...I'd like you to tell me what you have had the hardest time resisting this holiday season (for me, it's been sugar and spiced nuts)...."
A tip of the hat to williamcooks, on Twitter, for the heads-up on this post.
