Follow these tips round the clock to avoid holiday overeating.
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.
Take the mid-afternoon to prep whatever you’re bringing to the party. Integrative Woman’s Health expert Dr. Aviva Romm recommends calling your host the week before to ask if you can bring anything that will meet your health needs (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, etc.). If you are bringing dessert specifically, nutritionist Kristin Kirkpatrick recommends buying it instead of making it so you don’t have to waste your calories eating cookie dough, brownie batter, pie filling, and other unhealthy sugary things.
