“On the twelfth day of Christmas, CEBM gave to me…….Knowledge.

With 12 days to go before Christmas (and well aware of the fact that the 12 days of Christmas are in fact after Christmas), thoughts are already turning to the big day and all the yummy food that comes with it.

But we would be shirking our responsibility by not providing you with evidence-based information on how to manage the festive indulgences.

So here it is. Your guide to the calories in your favourite (or not) foods over the festive period and what you need to burn them off. Don’t say you haven’t been informed!
