Today is the day women will officially start their diets to shape up in time for Christmas, according to new research.
 
With the party season fast approaching, six out of ten women will embark on a regime to get their body in shape in time to fit into their glitzy outfit.
 
The study also found around 58 per cent of women plan to shed some pounds before their office party to make sure they are looking their best. But they are facing a tough few weeks as the report revealed the average dieter wants to lose an average of 10lbs by the start of the festive season.

A spokesman for British Lion eggs, which carried out the research, said that eggs for breakfast would help women stay trim. Research from Surrey University earlier this year debunked the myth that eating eggs increased people’s cholesterol level.

‘Research shows that eating eggs for breakfast can help to keep you feeling fuller for longer and therefore can help with weight management,’ a spokesman said.

While 71 per cent will eat a healthy balanced diet to shed the pounds, almost one in ten plan to skip the odd meal completely. Another four per cent will cut out breakfast from their daily routine.

The poll of 3,000 women revealed 14 per cent even buy their party outfit in a size they know is too small in the hope they will fit into it by the time the big event arrives.
