Christmas Lunch

Few of us want to calorie count at this time of year but the number in your typical festive feast may surprise you. According to the latest research, the average Brit will consume a whopping 5,906 calories on Christmas Day alone — that's almost three times the recommended daily allowance for women. And it's the equivalent of eating 12 Big Macs, 55 Kit Kats or 118 chicken nuggets!
Most people will tuck into a quarter of those calories before even they begin their festive lunch, with the average Christmas dinner containing around 1,450 calories alone. The remaining calories come from eating countless mince pies, chocolate, smoked salmon starters, cheese and Christmas pudding throughout the day — not to mention the glasses of bubbly and other festive drinks. It all adds up to 210g of fat in a day. If they eat this much the average person will gain 7lbs over the festive period. You would need to do 21.5 hours of walking, 13 hours of aerobics or 7.5 hours on the treadmill just to burn off your Christmas Day calories.
Scary!
