We all know what happens when we grocery shop while hungry. Inevitably we wind up caving to temptation and coming home with all sorts of extra (often unhealthy) foods which we had no intention of purchasing.
The same thing happens when we are running around all day during the holiday season, forgetting to eat and then head out to a dinner party. Unless we have incredibly impressive willpower, we are liable to end up stuffing our faces with all of the most fattenings of delectable hors-d’oeuvres and desserts.
Next time, pre-eat. Before the party, have a high protein high fiber snack to stabilize those cravings. Pair the snack with a tall glass of ice water to maximize your pre-party hydration levels. Follow through with this step, and it will take the ravenous edge off so that we can make the best choices possible.
