    LOL! I did this exactly. Basically had 30 truffles in one day. Except I came back slightly leaner o.O

        Went from 90% Primal to 70% over the holidays and gained a few lbs (168 up go 171). I ate a lot, grains in several pieces of pumpkin pie crust and way too many pieces of my wife's wonderful pumpkin loaf and dark chocolate rum balls, organic vanilla ice cream, chicken enchiladas, mashed potatos, lots of cheese, dark chocolate, red and white wine and even had a beer while watching football. On a positive note I IF'd most days until at least noon and ate a totally paleo breakfast, and did some good training which helped keep the fat gain to a minimum. Back to 90% Paleo/Primal as of today and will probably be back to my pre holiday weight in a couple of days.

          This is on the blue ones. Bad! I guess I better stay away from that stuff from now on. I just ASSumed that since it's chocolate the worst ingredients in it would be the soy lecithin and sugar.

            I've pretty much gained 4 lbs from september to now. I feel like my body just wants to store extra fat for the winter. I can't be too sure if it's fat since I go through weight fluctuations quite often. In any case I did eat non primal food during the holidays and boy did I pay for it.

              I sampled everything that looked interesting, and felt like crap on more than a few days. But all the chocolate is gone now, so I think I'm in the clear.

              Interesting though...it took much less to satisfy my impulses. I know I ate much, much less pie, shortbread, chocolate and booze than I would have in previous years. It was good, but it was more than enough. And that overfull feeling was overwhelming.

              I have no idea if or how much weight I might have gained. Its irrelevant. My clothes still fit and I have the tools to get back on track.

                Actually this is for all of them...I don't know why but all the bags have the same ingredients? O_o

                  First time in many, many years I did not gain a pound over the break.

                  Unfortunately, I have no idea why. I was about the same percentage primal last Christmas and gained 8 lbs (that never left).

                  Can one be a hard gainer and a hard loser at once?

                    Ditto- on all counts! Felt like crap, kept eating it. Lost 5 lbs of water the past 2 days, starting to feel normal again.

                    Why the hell do I do that to myself on occasion? To remind myself just how gluten and dairy intolerant I REALLY am?? Arghh!

                      In holidays we gain a lot of weight This is because we have nothing to do we simply stay at home Eat too much Do less exercise So to remain out of this problem we should remain busy during holiday Do a little bit of exercise And try not to eat too much

                        I didn't gain any weight, we didn't go many places over the holidays and the few places we went the food wasn't tempting. Turns out the primal stuff we eat at home is so much more tasty.

                          +1 especially on the Primal food. Other foods just don't do it for me anymore.

                            I ate a TON more cheese than normal, and some sugar in sausages. The only completely non primal food I had was a cherry pie, and I don't regret a second of it. I'm already forgetting the bloating and gas, but the flavor of the crust as it flaked apart in my mouth is as crisp a memory as if it happened yesterday. As for the rolls, crackers, cakes, and stuffing, forget about it!

                              I also did not gain any weight this holiday season. Mostly, we've been eating primal.

                              I splurged on home-made snicker doodles (not primal ones) -- about 12 total. And then, also I've had gelato once (child's sized scoop). And today was the biggie: pizza (gf crust). It was good. And, we went berry picking, so I had fresh berries and fresh whipped cream (no sugar or flavor added, just cream!). Delicious.

                              I suspect this may be the last go. Next week is home, then a few days out in the countryside again, so more fresh produce no doubt (picking zucchini or onions likely). Maybe asparagus. Hmm.

                              Anyway, it's been mostly primal. With IF, and no weight gain here.

                                Unfortunatley, I indulged in a bit too much alcohol and roast potatoes, and I can really feel the difference (not in a good way)
