Night Out, Stomach In

Between watching what you eat and exercising regularly, staying in shape can feel like a full-time job—and you work hard enough to spend a night on the town at least once a week. But sometimes, letting loose can lead you to metaphorically highlight all your Excel spreadsheets and gently rest your finger on the delete button. Don’t press it! By planning ahead and keeping a few simple food rules in mind, your big birthday dinner, bachelorette party, etc., can be a smashing success without threatening all the progress you made in the office (i.e. your super-fit bod) that week. Read ahead and plan your next special occasion with no fear for your figure.
