Follow these tips:

  • Don’t skip meals while waiting for a holiday feast. That way you’re less likely to overeat.
  • Choose lean proteins and lots of vegetables and fruits. Limit butter and high-fat dressings.
  • Shop for healthier items, like low-fat drinks and dips, unsalted nuts, and whole grain crackers.
  • Eat your favorite foods, but try smaller portions of the most decadent.
  • Keep up your exercise routine.
  • Focus on people. The more you chat with others, the less you’ll nibble
