  • Holiday excess might be inevitable,

  • but it doesn't have to be bad for you.

  • Here's how.

  • Hey this is Annie Gaus guest hosting for D News.

  • One of the best things about the holiday season

  • is the excuse to sit around and eat tons of good food,

  • drink tons of nog, and just do nothing,

  • which is part of the reason why it's so common to pack

  • on a couple pounds during the holidays.

  • According to a 2000 study by the New England

  • Journal of Medicine, people can gain an average

  • of just over a pound over the fall and winter.

  • And not surprisingly, even short term periods

  • of overeating and inactivity can have negative effects

  • on your blood sugar and metabolism.

  • But don't worry, there is good news.

  • A new study shows that exercise can counteract

  • those negative effects, even if you

  • are gaining a little bit of weight.

  • Physiologists from the University of Bath

  • tested groups of young men, having

  • them consume more calories than normal,

  • the equivalent of quality overeating.

  • One was sedentary.

  • The other exercised on a treadmill for 45 minutes a day.

  • And in just over a week, the inactive group

  • saw a whole range of negative effects,

  • like a decrease in blood sugar control

  • and changing gene expression in fat cells

  • linked to poor metabolism.

  • But the exercising group showed normal blood sugar levels

  • and less undesirable gene activity.

  • But what's interesting is that they

  • matched the excess calories according

  • to your level of activity.

  • They had the active group consume even more.

  • So everyone was at a similar level of excess.

  • So the implication of the study is

  • that even if you're stuffing your face with ham and fruit

  • cake during the Christmas week, exercise doesn't just

  • burn off some of those calories.

  • It can also have a protective effect

  • against some of the bad things that can happen in your body.

  • So in summary, eat, drink, be merry,

  • don't forget to move sometimes, and more importantly

  • have fun over the holidays.

  • As always, you get in touch with the show

  • at Twitter and Facebook at D News.

  • And you can also find me on Twitter at AnnieGaus.

  • Thanks for watching, and see you next time.

Holiday excess might be inevitable,
