There is a debate about goose, which is rich in animal fat. In France, where cholesterol-laden duck livers are a delicacy and often eaten, the incidence of heart disease is relatively low compared to the UK.

Christmas cake and pudding are fine, so long as you don't keep eating them all year round. The same goes for seconds - fine as a one-off treat but not every mealtime.

Even alcohol is acceptable over the festive season, so long as it's in moderation and you're not driving. Have the occasional alcohol-free day just to let your liver recover a bit from the boozing and remember that beer is much more fattening than wine as it is full of calories.

I find that it is nice to go for a walk with the family to get some exercise and 'walk off' your meal. It will also help you work up an appetite for the next one. Maybe you could use the time to visit neighbours or friends.

Another helpful form of exercise is helping out with the washing up after the meal. Not only will it keep you occupied and perk up the mind, it will give the cook a welcome rest.
