Holiday parties make it easy to overindulge. Here are a few simple tips that'll help you enjoy the festivities without having to worry about packing on the pounds:
- Don't Go Hungry - You're much more likely to overindulge if you face a buffet of delicious food on an empty stomach so have a healthy snack before you make your grand entrance.
- Hold the Drink - Limit your alcohol consumption as alcoholic drinks are full of empty calories. Try to substitute alcohol for sparkling mineral water.
- Get Active - Don't give up your usual exercise routine just because it's the holidays. If you do, the weight will pile on and it'll be more difficult to get back into the routine once the holidays are over.
Enjoying festive holiday parties doesn't have to equal weight gain. If you watch your intake and keep your physical activity up, you'll be able to start the year off in style – and in the same size clothes!
