Mirror: Yes, you feel like a giant, festering human landfill site, but all those treats are just too good to pass up.
However, the remorse which follows festive over-indulgence lurks just around the corner.
Those waves of crushing guilt which start to wash over you the moment that last pig in blanket / Quality Street / mince pie has been eaten are familiar to us all.
The diet and health food industry are relying on you to feel this way. As if on cue, we are suddenly confronted with detox and diet adverts and informationals.
However, if you do want to make one detoxifying tweak to your life, there is one unexpected ingredient scientists believe you should to add to your water to make nice with your body.
New year, new you.
No, it's not a slice of lemon, nor a bouquet of kale nor a goji berry.
Instead, by incorporating sweet potato, you could be introducing ingredients which assist in appetite suppression.
The downside is, you have you have to prepare them in a specific way - and it's not the tastiest, most appetising method of preparation.
Researchers from Japan recommend boiling the sweet potatoes then drinking the leftover broth, My Body and Soul revealed.
They found the proteins (called sweet potato peptide (SPP) which remain in the water once boiled, effectively suppressed the appetites of mice - and they believe the same would happen in humans.
After 28 days on a high fat diet in combination with drinking SPP, the mice were shown to have a significantly lower body weight, lower cholesterol levels and lower levels of leptin, which helps to regulate our hunger levels.
“We were surprised that SPP reduced the levels of fat molecules in the mice and that it appears to be involved controlling appetite suppression molecules,” said lead researcher Dr Koji Ishiguro.
"These results are very promising, providing new options for using this wastewater instead of discarding it."
