Guest: Jamie Cooper, PhD, Associate Professor in the University of Georgia’s Department of Foods and Nutrition  The average American gains 1 to 2 pounds a year, which doesn’t sound like a lot of weight until you consider that over the course of 50 years, you’re looking at a gain of 50 to 100 pounds. Research out of the University of Georgia sheds some light on when and where we might be packing on that extra weight. Not to put a damper on your spring break, but vacations might actually be making us fatter.
