Tips For Navigating Holiday Parties

TIP CONTENT PROVIDED BY: EXOS

Parties are abundant this time of the year and they all seem to have an overwhelming amount of sweets, food and alcohol. Here are a few tips to get you through this party season.

  • Have a small snack or your full meal before the party. Eat a healthy meal or snack that contains protein (chicken, eggs, jerky, beans, nuts) to prevent hunger and overeating.
  • Hydrate. Drink water before and during the party. This will help decrease hunger and will keep you hydrated if you are drinking.
  • Use a smaller plate, and only fill it up once. If there’s a buffet of options, find a small plate and keep yourself to only filling it up once. This will force you to choose the foods you really want and keep you from overindulging or getting lost in all the options.
  • Socialize away from the food. People who stand by food while they’re socializing tend to eat mindlessly. Find a spot where you’re away from the tempting treats and can focus on interacting with friends and family.
