The holidays are all about best purpose: early finish of shopping, mailing cards on time, and what is the most important one – surviving the year’s fat-filled feeding race. Sorry, we can’t help in licking envelopes or shopping that is up to you! But we can arm you with these smart eating tips for indulging without weight gain.
Get away from the table – The worst thing you can do is stand around the table at a party and dip into the bowl. You will have no idea how much you are really eating unless you do put your choices on the plate.
No chips or crackers – Do not waste precious calories on blasé fare. At parties try the host’s signature dish or a decadent hors d’oeuvre. Always pick up the special food that have lots of love poured into it, take just a small amount, and feel the taste of each bite. If you discover something that is not as wonderful as you thought, discreetly ditch it.
