HOLIDAY SURVIVAL GUIDE
prevent weight gain

Tasty hors d'oeuvres and who-can-count-how-many glasses of champagne can add up to give to 10 extra pounds by January.  Stephen Gullo, president of New York's Institute for Health and Weight Sciences' Center for Healthful Living, provides easy tips to avoid packing on the pounds.
  • Wear formfitting clothes to parties.  You'll know instantly if you are gaining weight.
  • Never go out hungry.  No time for a balanced meal?  Have a few GG Bran Scandinavian crispbreads.  They are the highest-fiber crackers in the world, and with only 12 calories a slice, you could eat the whole pack and still lose weight.
  • If you don't have time to eat before an event, order a Virgin Mary with extra celeryTomato juice is an appetite suppressant.
  • Carbonated beverages can trick the body into feeling full.  Drinking a diet soda will help limit your intake.
  • Think finger control.  You should have nothing in your hands except for shrimp, crudités, chicken kebabs, or fruit.
  • If you have an issue with hors d'oeuvres, carry a clutch in one hand and a drink in the other.  It will be inconvenient to eat.
  • If you crave high-calorie cheese or chocolate, have no more than two pieces.
  • If you must drink, have only one or two cocktails.  Too much alcohol inhibits your judgment during a meal.  He suggests choosing something you don't love so you won't finish it as quickly.  It's not calories you should worry about but how drinking can work as an appetite stimulant.
  • To limit alcohol consumption painlessly, alternate one alcoholic beverage with a nonalcoholic drink.  If you are going to a long dinner, order a bottle of mineral water as a reminder.
