    What’s the best alcohol choice to drink?

    Experts recommend liquor-based drinks with low-cal mixers. Rum and diet soda or vodka and Sprite Zero all run around 100 calories. Wine is a good option too—lighter glasses have around 100 to 120 calories—but experts caution that it’s easy to overdo the portion. “The real diet danger with drinking isn’t just the calories in your glass. Alcohol lowers your inhibitions, which can cause you to make poor food choices. Plus, it can interfere with how your body metabolizes other foods, making you more likely to store fat.” To avoid post-party regret, stick to one drink. Sip, savor; and then switch to water.

    When I’m going to a party, what should I eat the rest of the day?

    Here’s what you shouldn’t eat: nothing. “If you walk in to a party famished, it’s setting you up for disaster,” says the expert. “Maybe eat slightly fewer calories than usual, and focus on veggies and lean protein.” For breakfast, she recommends an egg-white omelet with veggies and cheese ,and a slice of whole-grain toast. For lunch, have a salad piled with non-starchy veggies (think broccoli, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes) and a protein like turkey, tuna, or chicken. Then nosh on a nutritious snack about 30 to 60 minutes before your party—a combo of fiber and protein.

     

    What should I eat at a holiday dinner?

    If there’s one simple rule to follow, it’s this: Fill half your plate with veggies, provided they’re not smothered in butter or cheese. This will help you fill up and avoid eating more higher-calorie carb or protein options. For the rest of your dish, split it between whole grains and lean protein. If there’s an indulgent-looking recipe you have to try, take a tablespoon or small scoop. “People overestimate how much they need to eat to feel satisfied,” says experts.

    How do I say “no” to friends and family who offer unhealthy food?

     

    People feel so guilty saying no out of fear of offending someone. But chances are you’re overestimating how much your response bothers them. Don’t worry about making excuses—just start with a simple, “No thanks” or “That looks great; I’ll try some later.” If you want to ensure you have something healthy to eat, ask the host in advance if you can contribute to the festivities.
