    As the title states.

    Currently in a bit of a tiddle - I want to have a reasonably healthy x-mas dinner - steamed brussel sprouts, carrots and vegetables with steamed/grilled salmon or king prawns and turkey without the skin and without gravy. No dessert or starter.

    For calories counting/weight watching is this ok?

    Plus what are you guys having?

    Yeah it is not much fun - but I'm just very strict about calories - even on x-mas day lol - it drives my mother insane!

    Sounds good, OP, although for dessert you can have some satsumas or something

    We're having roast lamb with roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings and lots of steamed veg and gravy.

    When my mum that I wanted lamb because 'chicken was so last year', she found it hilarious... :rolleyes:

    We haven't had turkey for ages (we usually have venison), so we'll be having that this year.

    As the others have said, Christmas is meant for pigging out :P

    You are so right! I plan to fit in as many calories as I possibly can... but I'll also do b/w 1000-1500 calories worth of exercise and hope that evens it out a bit lol

    Haha, I fully intend to spend my day eating far too much and doing no exercise whatsoever! My diet will then start on the 1st of January... New Years resolution perhaps?

    About as much food that I can possibly fit in, which is a lot only on Christmas though!

    Its worked out that I'm having three Christmas dinners this year, two with all the family and one with friends. The first and second are pretty much this:

    Starters: paté with toast and raspberry sauce or melon. I'll go for the melon, I hate paté!

    Turkey, Ham, maybe even a little bit of beef we'll see, roast potatoes, carrot and turnip, parsnips, peas, brocolli, yorkshire puddings, sprouts, stuffing and about 10 pigs in blankets.

    Dessert: a **** load of cakes, apparently I'm baking one >.<

    Then a load of cheese and crackers then left over turkey sandwiches.

    Third Christmas dinner is pretty much the same but with beef and not as many pigs in blankets

    Must point out that all the dinners arn't on the same day its one every two days I think!

    Sandwiches if last years anything to go by. Why are you worried about calorie counting? Christmas Day is one of the only days a year when everyone should stuff their faces

    I can't believe you're dieting on Christmas day. That makes me sad

    I think I'm having some Pate and crackers and stuff for starters, butternut squash bake thing with loadsa veg for main meal, and ice cream/fruity cheesecake for dessert. YUM.
