A chunk of advent calendar chocolate for breakfast, a Christmas coffee with whipped cream, a festive sandwich for lunch and more mince pies then you can shake a stick out.
No, these aren't the alternative lyrics to Twelve Days of Christmas but they are some of the foods we find ourselves indulging in during December.
However, if you're determined not to pile on the pounds, it is possible - and it doesn't include hellish spin lessons or drastic diets.
With just a few simple switches here and there you can avoid the dreaded seasonal weight gain.
Give Christmas coffees the cold shoulder
Festive hot chocolates, lattes and mochas taste amazing and they're all the better because of the festive cups they come in. But as lovely as they look the drinks are laden with sugar and calories. Limit yourself to one a week or if you can't resist the urge for another try ordering it with skimmed or soya milk to lower the calories.
Add some greens
On the days where you are not going out for Christmas meals and parties give you body a break from the heavy foods and booze. Prepare lighter meals at home with plenty of greens, lean meats or fish. Add fibre to your diet with whole grains and beans. Healthy meals don't have to be limited to salads and if you fancy something warm and hearty cook up a casserole, stew or soup with lots of vegetables and herbs to add flavour.
Eat everything in moderation
Mince pies and festive treats are almost impossible to resist entirely, the key is to not avoid going cold turkey altogether. Eat a little of what you fancy in moderation. So, if you want a Ferrero Roche have one or even two - it is Christmas after all - but resist the urge to nestle down on the sofa and go through the entire tray whilst watching Home Alone.
Gentle exercise like walking is great to get the body moving. Any form of movement that increases your heart rate and burns a few calories is good news - you don't need to spend hours slogging it at the gym to get fit. Alternatively, if it's far too cold to venture outside home workouts are just as effective. Buy yourself a fitness DVD or why not try a workout tutorial on YouTube, you can find anything from cardio, yoga and dance workouts at just a click of a button.
Limit the Baileys
The luxury creamy alcoholic beverage is a Christmas staple but did you know each serving has 130 calories? That's as much as half a Mars Bars. Swap your second glass of Baileys for prosecco which comes in at 80 calories per glass.
Your body and skin can start to feel sluggish with all the indulgence and upping the amount of water you drink can help detoxify the body and also dehydrate. The increase in sugar and alcohol can leave your skin feeling very dry and your body feeling dehydrated. Put back in what your body is loosing with a few extra glasses of H2O.
Do 10 minutes of skipping
Can’t afford or get to the gym? No fancy exercise equipment? No excuse! Get creative and do a quick workout at home.
Skipping with a rope is a fantastic way to get your heart rate up – it gets you breathless in no time – or you could achieve similar results by doing a short session of burpees, star jumps and some body-weight exercises.
