“I Can’t Even Move!” Ten Tips to Avoid Overeating and Burn More Calories During the Holidays
3. Eat Before You Go Out
During the busy holiday season, you’re probably running around visiting family and going to parties, so rather than pigging out at your company soiree, eat before you leave the house.

Use a small plate and fill it up if you MUST eat once you get there. Since you’ll be less hungry because you ate at home, this will trick your brain into thinking that you’re eating more than you actually are. I know it isn’t fun but do you really feel like beating yourself up again about how much you ate?
