Holiday gatherings mean special people, special foods and lots of temptation to indulge.

While celebrations often lead to overeating, it is easy to keep things under control if you’ve got a plan.

  • Start your day with a small meal that includes whole grains, fruit, dairy foods and protein like eggs, ham or peanut butter.

  • Don’t starve yourself before the meal. The longer you go without eating, the more you eat when you sit down for a meal.
