4. Upsize variety, downsize portions
Sometimes you’ll find yourself drooling at the sight of a lavish spread. When you get that “I want it all” feeling, follow your bliss – but bite by bite.
Wanting a piece of cake, pie or gingerbread? Have them all, but aim for just a spoonful or two of each. By the end of the party, you’ll leave with that fabulous "I've had it all" feeling.
5. Eat, drink less, and be merry?
For weight loss, you don’t want to slow down your metabolism, yet that is exactly what alcohol does. If you still choose to drink, avoid the eggnogs, cream drinks, and any beverage made with extra carbohydrates. Sip your beverages slowly, giving your body more time to metabolize it.
6. Don’t arrive starving
This is the same principle as grocery shopping while hungry. Some people hold back their appetite in anticipation of loading up on the party fare. The backlash from this kind of restriction is more likely to result in overeating.
Almased offers a better alternative. Try eating your usual meals and add a snack before party time. For example, try half of an Almased holiday smoothie to fill in the hankering gaps.
