Dr. Oz's Holiday Secrets
With the spread of delicious treats and flowing alcohol, it can be especially hard to monitor your waist at the multitude of holiday parties you'll attend this season. For these parties, Dr. Oz says you really have to focus on adjusting your behavior.
Prepare before you leave. Eating some nuts 30 minutes before heading to a party will cut down your appetite.
When you arrive, always have one hand free to greet others. This is both good manners and will keep you from two-fisted eating or having wine in one hand and food in the other.
Alternate drinking glasses of alcohol with water to dilute the effects of lowered inhibitions. Or, if you're at a dinner party, have drinks only after dinner for dessert.
