When Fat Attacks

Your waistline could be in for a double whammy this holiday season. It's not just all the roast turkey, sugar cookies and the egg nog.

Professor Denise Martz expects the toll of the uncertain economy will be like throwing fat onto the fire. She's a professor of psychology who specializes in body image and obesity. She says people often overeat when they're stressed and we're sure stressed.

Martz adds with all the parties it's easy to lose track of how much you're packing away. She suggests people keep a food diary of what they're eating.
