Tempting foods at holiday office parties can easily derail your healthy diet. Consider the following alternatives so you can avoid weight gain this holiday season.
· Before the party, eat a nutritious, protein-packed meal, followed by a high-fiber snack. This way you won’t be so hungry when you arrive at the party and you won’t eat as many less nutritious foods.
· If it’s a potluck, bring a heart-healthy dish.
· At the party, look for whole grains, fruits, veggies and grilled choices rather than dishes that are fried or loaded with cream, cheese or butter.
· It’s okay to indulge in dessert, but a healthier choice is to but find a colleague and split one together.
