A minute on the lips...

Written by  The Hound

As we head into the festive season, your canine crusader has come across some research that may have you thinking twice about reaching for a second (or even third) helping at Christmas dinner this year.

According to the experts at GolfSupport.com , they have done some research and discovered how many exercises you’d have to do to burn off your favourite festive foods.

Some of their key findings include: 

  • The most calorific festive food is the Christmas Pudding (305 kcals) taking 1,445 squats to burn off one serving.
  • In second place is Pigs in Blanket (280 kcals), with 430 burpees needed to burn off one serving.
  • Rounding off the top 15 is the love-them-or-hate-them Brussel Sprouts (45 kcals), with only a 4-minute jog required to burn off a serving.

How depressing!
