Walk into many parties, and you're immediately faced with tempting, calorie-laden foods.
Here's a plan to help you enjoy the merrymaking without packing on extra pounds:
Fill a small plate with fruits and veggies, so you'll get full on healthy foods rather than junky ones.
To drink, choose sparkling water, club soda, diet soda, or water. Add a wedge of lemon and lime for flavor.
Find one treat that gives you the biggest thrill and go for it (you may be less likely to splurge later on). A few 200-calorie options:
25 plain potato chips
Three dice-size squares of cheese with five crackers
Two 3-inch cookies or three 2-inch cookies
1/2 cup or 1 scoop of plain ice cream (without nuts, candy pieces or other swirly add-ins)
