How NOT to look like S. Claus

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us (and on our hips and thighs)  it’s time to talk strategy for the rest of the holiday eating season.  Did you know you the average person packs on about 5 extra pounds between now and New Year’s? 

It’s not hard to see why…holiday cookies, candies, egg nog, a holiday cocktail party (or two) every weekend…the eating is endless!  Now I’m not saying you should deny yourself these treats, but remember they are that…treats…to be enjoyed in moderation.  But if you need some hard/fast rules to nosh by here are a few tips:

  • Exercise the day of the party so you’ll be more focused when faced with tempting foods.
  • Have a small, nutritious snack before you go.
  • Fill up on zero- or low-calorie beverages.
  • Drink a glass of water between every alcoholic beverage.
  • Don’t stand near the food table. — I LOVE THIS IDEA! So simple, yet effective!
