Here are a few Holiday eating tips from Body Intelligence:
• Anticipating and planning will reduce excess Holiday eating. For example, at a party carry a glass of sparkling water so that your hands will be occupied making it harder to snack
• Learn to cope with Holiday stress without eating (see Chapter 4)
• Plan either a serious or humorous assertive response to social pressures to eat (see Chapter 5)
• Alcoholic drinks add calories and are disinhibiting making overeating more likely. To reduce unnecessary eating, enjoy alcohol with your meal rather than with snacks (see Chapter 6)
