Vacation souvenirs, from T-shirts to snow globes, that prove you’ve “been there” are lots of fun to collect over the years. Unfortunately for many adults, picking up a few extra pounds on vacation is an unwanted souvenir of good times, too.

“If you’re only gaining a pound or two a year, and you gained three-quarters of that on a one- to three-week vacation, that’s a pretty substantial weight gain during a short period of time,” said Jamie Cooper, an associate professor of nutrition in UGA’s College of Family and Consumer Sciences.
