Most likely, the majority of the parties you have this holiday season will be hosted by another individual which means you won’t have control over what’s served. What you can control, however, is what you choose to eat and how you choose to eat it! If the party is set up buffet-style, start out by using a small plate and serving yourself the cleanest, healthiest options available, preferably the vegetable and protein dishes that are offered. After you finish your first plate, give yourself 10-20 minutes before diving into the next. This is about how long it takes for your stomach to tell your brain that you’re full. If you’re at a dinner party where the meal is served in courses, just remember to eat slowly and give your brain time to process your fullness levels.
