    I indulge, but tbh, I could do with gaining some weight so it's not a worry for me.

    I find breathing, eating and drinking is a good way of surviving christm... oh wait, that's not your question.

    I don't worry about it. I train hard and just let myself enjoy it. I generally don't eat chocolate anyway, so that's no biggie and christmas dinner is plenty of protein with carbs and vegetables. Perfect.

    I see it as the easiest possible way to ensure I get well over 2500 calories per day.

    Im lean bulking at the moment, so i'm only eating 300 calories over maintenence. So, thats like 2300. To compensate for the enevitable all out binge on christmas day, i've done a sort of mini cut. Lost 1 1/2 lbs last week, and so far .5lbs this week. Therefore, on christmas day. I can overeat a ton

    It's quite easy to survive usually. I sit in my home, we open our presents and have Christmas dinner. We then watch TV and later play boardgames and have some sandwiches.

    Every year is a struggle for survival.

      Dude seriously 1 day of a lot of eating is fine. Plus you don't need to eat all these sweet things. Xmas dinner is pretty nutritious from my point of view; some good carbs and protein there as well as vitamins and nutrients. Then there's no need to stuff yourself silly with sweets and puddings. Starters like salmon are got for you too with omega 3 etc etc.

      And tad off topic OP but long time no see :wink2:

      It's probably going to be like two weeks of indulgence with all the family/family friends I'm being dragged to see.

      But if anyone's offering food/alcohol. I'm not complaining.

      it hasn't affected me at all since I barely eat chocolate now, nuts I like and are a good snack anyway, and on xmas day i'll just eat half the turkey and veg, pretty healthy aside from the pudding and whats 1000 cals of pudding and cream gonna do to me? make me obese?
