1. Arrive at the event feeling satisfied.
It’s tempting to save the calories for the bigger meal, skipping meals backfires and results in consuming extra calories at holiday parties—far more than you would have consumed had you eaten the previous meals. There is less room in your stomach for extra junk when you’re stuffed with healthy fare. Plus, when you’re full, you’re less likely to focus on food in the first place. Eat regular meals and be sure to include veggies and fruits, which will prevent your stomach from grumbling and keep your blood-sugar levels stable without adding too many calories.
