Subtitle: while Im not headed out of town (thank you lord) Im hosting this year so I wont be around much for a few days.
My biggest diet tip?
Skip the dessert? NO.
Eat before the party so youre not hungry for the tantalizing delights offered? NO!!!
Exercise more? NOPE. This is a great time to, if you feel like it, TAKE A BREAK.
what do I give up between now and January second? Eating stuff I dont like just to be nice.
Im such a picky eater. It's immediately evident and, once you get to know me, IMMEDIATELY evident that it isnt a health thing (read: I cant stand green peppers, red peppers or mushrooms).
As a result I spend ERRR SPENT a lot of time eating stuff I really couldnt stand (see above veggies and add MAYO and onions to the list) just to be nice.
So as not to hurt people's feelings.
that's my one tip and suggestion for you: dont be nice. smile and say no thank you if it isnt something you REALLY want.
otherwise: ENJOY. INDULGE. There's plenty of time to give a care about caloric content later.
that's just my .02
