The average person consumes approximately 7,000 calories on Christmas Day, according to the Christmas Calories Swap Shop infographic.

That means good news for the gyms, since many people make new year’s resolutions to work out more, especially after the gluttonous holidays. But while exercise is a healthy habit, there’s no reason why a few of the holiday goods can’t be swapped out for a few delicious but belly-friendly choices. With greasy rich feasts of sausage stuffing and quiche, it’s hard not to pack on the pounds over Christmas. Readers will be delighted to know that the replaced options are not as dreadful as imagined with a glass of champagne weighing in at half the calories of mulled wine and gravy over cranberry sauce, who says eating healthier can’t be just as tasty?
