Holiday Weight

College students may return to class Monday a few pounds heavier after this week's holiday.

Researchers at the University of Oklahoma in Norman evaluated 94 students the week before Thanksgiving and the week after.  Students gained an average of 1.1 pounds over the holiday weekend.  Those students who were already overweight, gained an average of two pounds more.  The good news is, most of that extra weight was lost by mid-January.
