The proof may be in the pudding, but there’s a whole load of fat in it too — especially around Christmas time when everybody has extra portions, and then some more. After all, Christmas is all about food and family right? Well — yes of course, but what about all that progress you’ve made with your training? The average person gains around 5lbs of fat over the festive period, and it takes a lot longer to lose that 5lbs, so does that mean Christmas is out? Nah — of course not. It just needs tweaking a little.
