The holiday season is in full swing and you know what that means, Christmas parties! But along with the fun of Christmas parties comes lots and lots of food and drinks! So how are you going to keep your diet under control this year? Follow these healthy tips to help you stay slim while still enjoying the party!

  • Eat a snack before you go – Going to a party on an empty stomach may cause you to overindulge. Have a healthy snack before you leave to prevent yourself from making unhealthy choices on impulse at the party.
  • Decide before you go what you will eat – Setting a goal for yourself before the party can be helpful. Tell yourself that you will only eat one of grandma’s famous peanut butter cookies or only a bite of aunt Martha’s bread pudding to help keep you on track once you get there.
  • Bring your own healthy dish to share at the party – Worried that the parties you are attending this year won’t have anything that fits into your diet? Make a healthy dish to bring along! You’ll be surprised to find out that other attendees will be glad you did!
  • Stand clear of anything creamy, crispy, and fried – It’s safe to assume that creamy and fried foods are high in fat and may sabotage your diet. Stay near the veggie tray instead and avoid these high-fat foods.
  • Have a glass of water between each drink – To avoid overindulging in cocktails, alternate between a cocktail and a glass of water throughout the night. Drinking water will ensure you stay hydrated and prevent you from making poor food choices later in the night.

How do you plan to stay healthy at holiday parties this year?

Happy Christmas Eve!
