 Burn Your Christmas Lunch With a Walk
The government is promoting "Christmas walk" as a means of burning off a heavy Christmas lunch, which can contain up to 1,500 calories. This is actually more than half of recommended daily intake for men and three-quarters of RDA for women.

"Whatever the weather, a traditional festive walk is a great way for families and friends to avoid that sluggish feeling and have a more active Christmas," said Public health minister Gillian Merron. "Being more physically active can make a real difference to your health - taking that extra walk is something we can all enjoy as a family."

Towards this end, the government has also drawn up a list of famous walks like Tower Bridge, a trek in the Peak District and walk on Birmingham's Moseley Bog.

Tom Franklin, chief executive of Ramblers, welcomed the idea, "Winter is a great time to go walking - there's nothing like a crisp winter day and the kids will really enjoy themselves if it snows," he added.
