The holidays are in full swing. As we dash and prance from one holiday party to the next, we are surrounded by decadent delectables calling us, daunting us, alluring us until we succumb to the temptations and say to ourselves, “Oh! I gotta try that!”
Years ago, I taught a series of weight management classes where we covered strategies for handling the holidays without overeating. One tip was to not under-eat the day of the party because inevitably we arrive at the party starving and snarf everything in site! Instead it’s best to eat healthy meals throughout the day knowing full well that our healthy-for-me meter will go out the door the second we eye the buffet table.
