Xmas gorging season starts at 10am today.
Byline: RUKI SAYID
JUST before 10am this morning is when we are most likely to start the Christmas over-eating.
The biggest indulgers, typically those aged 16-24, are likely to have so many mince pies, chocolate treats and alcoholic drinks in the run-up to Christmas they will consume 30,000 extra calories, a survey found.
But 28% of males and 23% of women claim they never tuck into festive treats.
The most common reason given for over-indulgence was "comfort eating".
Tilda Basmati Rice, that carried out the poll of 1,000 adults, instead recommends getting plenty of natural light, eating wholefoods to feel fuller and keeping meals as balanced as possible.
A spokesman said: "Healthy 'feel good' choices can help us feel happy and healthy in the longer term."
