The Relationship Between Feasting Periods and Weight Gain: a Systematic Scoping Review
TLDR
Interventions targeting festive periods could have a significant impact on population weight gain, and the scalability and sustainability of such interventions require further investigation, as do the broader socioecological factors driving unhealthy eating during festive periods.
Preventing weight gain in adults: A systematic review and meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lifestyle intervention prevents cumulative weight gain in non-obese adults, with future research required to inform cost-effectiveness and implementation feasibility.
Self-reported changes in energy balance behaviors during COVID-19 related home confinement: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
The findings support the need to implement and support measures that promote strategies to maintain body weight and establish a methodology to collect body weight data at multiple time points to longitudinally assess the dynamic relationship between behaviors and body weight change.
COVID‐19–Related Home Confinement in Adults: Weight Gain Risks and Opportunities
TLDR
Extended home confinement in the global COVID-19 pandemic could exacerbate the problem of obesity in adults by substantially contributing to or exceeding annual weight gain.

Walking on Water—A Natural Experiment of a Population Health Intervention to Promote Physical Activity after the Winter Holidays
TLDR
A winter-specific urban trail network on a frozen waterway substantially increased visits to an existing urban trail system and was associated with a meaningful dose of MVPA, which could nudge populations living in cold climates towards more activity during winter months.
Analysis on the Change of College Students' Life Pattern and its Impact during the COVID-19 Outbreak in China.

Regular weighing to prevent excessive gestational weight gain: a study protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
This study will provide key information for countries to develop guidelines on antenatal care and strategies to tackle excessive gestational weight gain and will create a “Summary of findings” table according to the methods described in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions.
Consistently biased: documented consistency in self-reported holiday healthfulness behaviors and associated social desirability bias
TLDR
Consistency was found in self-reported agreement with a series of holiday healthfulness statements, across time, holidays, and samples of respondents, which are notable in both self-reporting of health-related data and in studying a unique consumption period around the holidays.

An intervention using Wi‐Fi scales and graphic e‐mail feedback, the caloric titration method (CTM), to reduce age‐related weight gain over 1 year among college students was evaluated.
Consistent Self‐monitoring of Weight: A Key Component of Successful Weight Loss Maintenance
TLDR
The characteristics associated with frequent self-weighing and the relationship between self‐weigheding and weight loss maintenance were investigated to investigate the effects of diet and exercise on weight loss.
The efficacy of a daily self-weighing weight loss intervention using smart scales and email
TLDR
To examine the impact of a weight loss intervention that focused on daily self‐weighing for self‐monitoring as compared to a delayed control group among 91 overweight adults, a large number of overweight adults were obese.
The effect of holiday weight gain on body weight
A prospective study of holiday weight gain.
TLDR
The average holiday weight gain is less than commonly asserted, and the net 0.48-kg weight gain in the fall and winter probably contributes to the increase in body weight that frequently occurs during adulthood.
Daily Self-Weighing to Control Body Weight in Adults
TLDR
In conclusion, daily self-weighing may be a useful strategy for certain adults to prevent weight gain, lose weight, or prevent weight regain after loss.

TLDR
Encouraging people who have recently lost weight to weigh themselves regularly prevents some weight regain.
Self-weighing in weight gain prevention and weight loss trials
TLDR
Results support the idea that daily weighing is valuable to individuals trying to lose weight or prevent weight gain, and should be emphasized in clinical and public health messages about weight control.

TLDR
A high preholiday absolute TEE or residual TEE did not protect against BW gain during the winter holiday quarter, and obese men (BMI ≥30) gained more BW than did obese women.
