Enjoy Holiday Hoopla Without Gaining a Pound

Watch the Alcohol


Alcohol is a double whammy: It’s loaded with calories and it lowers your inhibitions, which means you’ll probably end up eating more than you planned. Avoid seasonal drinks like spiked eggnog, buttered rum, and peppermint (schnapps) hot chocolate, which are laden with calories, sugar, and fat. Instead, stick with wine or champagne (one medium goblet), wine spritzers (one or two glasses), or light beer (two cans or bottles, max).
