Foreign all-inclusive holidays may be heavenly on the wallet but are proving hellish on the waistline, says a study published today.

More than half of those quizzed had put on half a stone while on all- in away breaks, the holiday company Flying Colours said. A further 5 per cent had piled on as much as a stone, thanks to regular visits to the buffet table and a liberal supply of alcohol.

"People tend to adopt a totally different mentality on holiday. Those on diets throw caution to the wind and even those who normally have a health eating regime tend got go a little wayward," said Flying Colours development director Karen Gee.
