Loosen your belts if you're making Jamie Oliver's Christmas dinner menu, which is said to amount to a whopping 10,000 calories per person.
According to the Daily Mail, the celebrity chef's yuletide menu totals at more than 7,000 calories per person, and almost 10,000 if you include his "leftovers" suggestions.
Considering that it is recommended that women consume 2,000 calories per day and men 2,500 calories per day, the menu surpasses that amount five times over - and that's not including breakfast.
The recipes for the menu are featured in the 41-year-old's Christmas Cookbook, including turkey wrapped with rashers of salty bacon (898 calories), creamed spinach with cheddar and oat crumble (347) calories and Christmas pudding (627 calories).
While the seven course lunch, afternoon tea and evening meal certainly look and sound delicious, we think they take Christmas indulgence to a whole new level.
Oliver has not yet commented on the calorie content of his festive feast.
