Now that you’re at the party and everyone around you is toting a little plastic cup and a mile-high mound of sugary confection on their plates, what do you do?
STEP AWAY FROM THE TABLE.
LESS IS MORE.
Choose a small plate, fill up off of the crudités then move as far away from the table and bar as possible. Nibble away at your plate slowly and, when finished, sip on water or chew gum.
BE THE SOCIAL BUTTERFLY YOU ARE!
While everyone else is stuffing their faces, take charge of the conversation. You’ll warm up the party while refraining from plumping up beside them.
TAKE THE FOCUS OFF THE FOOD.
The holidays are about celebrating so celebrate your friends and family, not the food.
WHITE OR RED? GREEN OR YELLOW?
Watch what you drink. Stay away from the sugary sodas and punches, steer clear of the calories-loaded beer and pass up the fat-packed eggnog.
IT’S A PARTY SO RELAX AND HAVE FUN.
Don’t forget why you’re celebrating so relax, enjoy yourself, give thanks and keep all things in moderation.
