Mary Hartley, the registered dietician in residence at Dietsinreview.com, told ABC News that a hearty family breakfast consisting of two pancakes with butter, syrup and sausage links kicks the day off with a total of 600 calories and Hartley noted mapping out a reasonable holiday meal.

Hartley said that while most people will skip lunch in favor of an early dinner, they will typically spend the day noshing.

Hartley said that it was more likely most people will consume several handfuls of chips and nuts, some crudite with dip, and a couple of appetizers totaling 1190 calories.

Cedric Bryant, the chief science officer at the American Council on Exercise, said that these estimates seem plausible except for perhaps the breakfast and most people make the mistake of skipping breakfast thinking they'll save up their calories for later and this is a strategy that often backfires, causing people to eat even more.
