Thanksgiving is next week and experts are warning not to turn to holiday food as a way to deal with stress.

If you do that, you could be setting yourself up for weight gain in the new year.

Experts say that many people will gain anywhere from seven to 10 pounds from the middle of October through the end of the year because of all the fatty foods available at parties and other gatherings.

Experts advise to cope with your problems by taking a walk, calling a friend or reading a good book.

The key is finding a way to refrain from using food to help you feel better.
