The upcoming days will prove to be a virtual minefield of diet saboteurs and figure-fatteners, with holiday cheer all around. You'll encounter delicious cheese logs at the staff holiday party and be greeted by the sweet aroma of pumpkin spice at the coffee shop. There's no escaping it.
We're not necessarily saying you need to give up wine, bread, and cheese -- although it certainly wouldn't hurt after eating your body's weight in pumpkin pie over Thanksgiving. But if you don't want to give yourself an early Christmas present (we're talking an extra 5 pounds), then do yourself a favor and at least avoid these calorically-laden food offenders.
