Christmas is coming, and it’s not just the geese that are getting fat. Celebrations over the holidays often revolve around gathering and feasting. In the northern hemisphere, baby it’s cold (and wet) outside and the long, silent nights may contribute to seasonal variations in physical activity.[1 2] Together, increased opportunities for eating, and decreased propensity for physical activity likely contribute to the 0.4 – 0.9 kg weight gain found in adults home for the holidays.

The current recommendation prototype on the Apollo Repository will be turned off on 03 February 2023. Although the pilot has been fruitful for both parties, the service provider IKVA is focusing on horizon scanning products and so the recommender service can no longer be supported. We recognise the importance of recommender services in supporting research discovery and are evaluating offerings from other service providers.
