GABRIEL GARCIA, Cándido; BERNA, Amparo; SEBASTIA, Natividad  y  SORIANO, José Miguel. Prospective study on the effect of the influence of holiday periods in the weight during a low-calory dietetic treatment. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, n.6, pp.2246-2251. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: Overweight and obesity are both in Europe and in Spain, one of the major public health problems since they are associated with cardiovascular risk factors and the occurrence of other diseases. Nowadays, the prevalence of obesity SEEDO in Spanish society is about 25%. In addition to evaluating how our lifestyle habits influence in our weight, it would be interesting to assess how the festivity days, which in many cases are often extended beyond officially holidays, can influence the total annual weight gain. Methods: A prospective and descriptive study was conducted in a total of258 patients (95 men and 163 women) undergoing a treatment for weight reduction, at least during one month ago. We studied seven holiday periods. Results: In all patients, there was a significant linear correlation (p < 0.05) difference between weight loss and vacational time studied with greater prevalence in the Christmas period. No statistically significant association was found between weight loss and age or sex.
