Enjoy Holiday Hoopla Without Gaining a Pound

Don’t Arrive Famished

Have a light snack (under 200 calories) about an hour before you make your entrance at a party or other holiday event. This will help take the edge off so you don’t dive into the first edible item you lay eyes on (helloooo, chocolate-fondue fountain!). Smart snacks include apple slices with one level tablespoon peanut butter, two rice cakes topped with sliced turkey, and a stick of string cheese with a banana or orange.
