7 Tips for avoiding over-indulgence at Holiday parties:
Spend time making conversations instead of stuffing yourself with foods/drinks.
Have a 200-350 Kcal snack before you arrive the party (ex. a handful of nuts, a non-fat Greek yogurt with 1 Tbsp of flaxseed/chia seed/fresh chopped berries, a piece of fruit with 1 Tbsp natural Almond Butter).
Suggest guests to bring a healthy dish along with recipes to share with friends and family.
Limit alcohol consumption. Choose wine or straight spirits over mixed drinks or beer. Have at least a glass of water in between drinks.
Eat slowly and enjoy every bite of your meal.
Stick with the 3 bites rule if you want to have cheat foods (ex. high calorie pie).
Have fun and dance off the calories with friends and family.
Holiday Food Choices:
Vegetable or Fresh Fruit Salad with light dressing (ex. Greek yogurt)
