Weekends are a danger zone for weight gain, according to a study that analyzed the food consumption of thousands of Americans. The average 19- to 50-year-old consumes 115 more calories a day (mostly from alcohol and fat) on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays than on Monday through Thursday. This can add up to a weight gain of almost 5 pounds a year. Adults aged 51 to 70 average 74 more calories daily, mostly from fat, on weekend days
