Your Christmas party diet OFFICIALLY starts here: Women keen to drop a dress size for festive season should start slimming now
Forget about warming comfort food and step away from the office biscuit tin.
For those looking to wow colleagues – and the office crush – at this year’s Christmas party, the diet needs to start today.
With 62 per cent of women admitting in a new survey that they plan to slim down for the festive season, today has been earmarked as the time to start in order to safely drop a dress size.
Over half (52 per cent) the women polled admitted to wanting to lose at least 9lbs before they slip into their party dresses (the equivalent of a full dress size).
Just 10 per cent admitted they were completely happy with their current shape and size.
That’s right, ladies – you need to start slimming for Christmas on the first of November. Which highlights two depressing assumptions:
- Women need to be dieting for around 6-7 weeks before a Christmas party.
- Women need to diet for a Christmas party.
Personally, I’m not entirely convinced by either assertion, but then I don’t have the force of the media and the commercial PR industry putting pressure on me to worry about my weight. Speaking of which, which company decided to remind women just how essential it is to feel unhappy with their current weight?
The survey was conducted by George at Asda as they release a new range of 30 Little Black Dresses.
