“Christmas food will make you fat!” says diet firm
Brits eat all their daily calories before lunch on Christmas Day
The average person consumes their entire recommended daily allowance of calories before they even start tucking into lunch on Christmas Day, a survey finds.
The average Briton has consumed their entire recommended daily calorie intake by 2.08pm on Christmas Day, before they even start tucking into lunch, a survey suggests.
People eat an estimated 7,000 calories throughout the day –three times the amount of energy needed in a 24 hour period.
The study found a more than a third of women would like to lose half to one-and-a-half stone ahead of the festive season but instead the average person will gain 6lbs between Christmas Eve and News Year’s Day.
With Christmas just around the corner, the Telegraph and the Daily Mail carried a stark warning that the amount we’re all set to eat over Christmas will lead us all to become grossly overweight. A warning sent to us directly from a diet firm, naturally:
Alexis Boo, spokesperson at Ideal Weight who carried out the research, said: “With the numerous parties and desire to look good in our best outfit, Christmas is a key time for people to think about their weight.
“It’s easy to go overboard during the festive season and eat indulgently with all the temptations on offer, but there’s no reason why you can’t have a bit of what you fancy without worrying about the waistline.”
No reason at all, especially if you’re going to join this particular diet club in the New Year.

November 29 is the ‘Day of Vice’ for dieters
November 29 has been named as the day dieters are most likely to give in to their cravings and fall off the wagon
November 29 has been named as the ‘Day of Vice’ when women dieting all over the country fall of the wagon and start indulging in the festive treats on offer in the run up to Christmas, a new survey revealed.
The end of November is the single most unsuccessful day for dieters, when 60 per cent give up on attempts to lose weight.

Dieting is hard, and it’s almost impossible to stick to a disciplined and sensible dietary regime. Which is why you need the help of companies like the one behind this article, to step in where your own willpower fails:
Izzy Cameron, nutrition and weight management specialist at Diet Chef, which carried out the research, said: “It is hard to give up alcohol and all those sweet treats especially at this time of year, but if you want to shed those pounds they are the secret calories that can easily add up; even those handful of chocolates from the Christmas tin.
Where would we be without a faddy dieting firm to tell us how useless our own willpower is when it comes to watching what we eat?
