With so many parties and so much great food, the holidays can be a challenging time of year if you’re trying to watch your weight and your waistline. How can you treat your taste buds without sacrificing a good time?
Eat sensibly on the day of your holiday dinner. Be sure to have a moderate breakfast or brunch before the big dinner arrives. This will help make sure you don’t come to the main meal with a full appetite and a fuller plate.
Eat the right appetizers. Those hot dogs in a blanket and miniature egg rolls are certainly tasty but they can really pack on the pounds. Each bite contains about 100 calories or more. Choose to eat fresh vegetables instead (without the dip, of course) or, if that’s not an option, simply limit your portions.
