Most holiday celebrations revolve around food. While it is great to spend time with friends and family, it’s important to have sensible eating strategies in place before heading to a party.

  1. Drink a bottle of water before the party. It will help to fill you up so you won’t eat as much. It can also help keep you from getting dehydrated, which is important if you are also drinking alcohol.
  2. Fill your plate with veggies. Mindless snacking on crackers and cheese, nuts, potato chips and dips can easily add up. Load your plate with leaner, lower-calorie foods first.
  3. Have a sugar-free mint (or two). You’ll be less likely to eat mindlessly.

  5. Dance away the distractions. And the calories.
