Christmas is the most magical time of year, and while millions of Brits will have had to change their plans this year, hopefully it will still involve lots of good food.

Turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes, sprouts are all staples of a Christmas dinner. But that’s not all we’re likely to indulge on over Christmas.

Mince pies, trifle, mulled wine, cheese boards anyone?

Whatever you eat this festive season, it’s likely you’ll overindulge a little.

After all, this year has been extremely tough, so you’d be forgiven if you wanted to treat yourself.

But before you tuck into your Christmas pudding, you might want to take a glance at some alarming stats.

GolfSupport.com have worked out how many calories are in your average Christmas dinner – and how much exercise it would take to burn off.
