Countdown to the New Year! 6...

Merry Christmas! Enjoy yourself today!

You can have fun, enjoy the food and festivities, and be mindful of your calorie intake too. Here are a few tips for portion control at the festivities today:
  • Socialize away from the appetizer table! Take only one small plate-full including lots of veggies. Don't graze.
  • Alternate between alcohol and a calorie-free beverage; this helps you limit the amount of calories you take in. Choose wine, light beer or alcohol mixed with a calorie-free mixer.
  • Eat one plate at dinner. Try to make 1/4 meat, 1/4-1/3 starch and the rest veggies (about 1/2 your plate).
  • Take one small piece of your favorite dessert.
