Hmmm ... I'm sorry to bust your bubble, but speaking as a modern American female I can say that the story about foods that consume more calories than they add to your diet is a myth. Believe me, we women are experts on calories! But celery is still an excellent source of fiber, which we all know can help tremendously in a weight management program.

I can definitely recommend something that helps me stay on track: check out one of those free nutrition programs like thedailyplate or sparkpeople.com. It can be such an eye-opener once you actually record what you're eating. The thing is, these programs count not only your calories, but also all your other nutrients, and suddenly you realize what you've actually been doing. I think just one week's worth of keeping a record is enough to put you on the straight and narrow. Give it a shot -- it may seem a little tedious at first, but it's completely free (these programs survive by their side-bar ads) and it's a stunning education.

Good luck with all that! The holidays can be tough.
