UNITED KINGDOM -- The U-S is number one in the holiday food map. When it comes to eating too much, America is a bad role model for the rest of the world!
Researchers in the U.K. found that the amount of weight gained on vacation depends on where you go.
The U.S., with its big portions and all-you-can-eat buffets, is the worst destination for the waistline. People who travel to the U.S. pile on about 8 lbs. in two weeks.
The Caribbean, with its all-inclusive resorts, came in a close second. France is no. 3 but not so much for the quantity as for the quality of their food.
