By Toni Gasparis
It’s that time of year – the time of lots of parties and the overeating that comes along with it. While the holidays can be an exciting time to see family and friends and have some fun, they can also cause a lot of stress for fear of gaining weight. Use these tips from Dr. Oz’s trusted experts to arm yourself with the hourly tools needed to make sure you get through each party this season without added guilt.
Follow a healthy meal plan and eat a hearty breakfast. It is often thought that in order to maximize calories allowed at holiday parties it is best to starve oneself beforehand. This logic could not be further from the truth, cautions Feller. Skipping meals in order to give yourself more calories to play around with later is not a good idea because “we often severely underestimate the number of calories we consume at parties” says Feller, so we still end up overeating. Feller recommends trying out a breakfast salad in order to keep your blood sugar stable and pump your body with some extra nutrients in the morning.
