    Turkey coma, food baby, sugar high — when it comes to Christmas calories, there's really no end to the overloading (or over-serving). And, because mom's homemade apple pie, a second mug of eggnog, and that figgy pudding might all be impossible to resist, we're saying, "Don't resist!"…or, at least don't feel guilty if you go for the eating gold. Yes, here at R29 HQ we spend as much time agonizing over our lunch orders as we do picking out our outfits — and we spend double the amount of hours on both during the celebratory season.
