Holiday Party Guide: Eat, Drink, and Still Be Slim
Secrets of a Successful Dieter
Forty pounds lighter, lotsa parties (and two years) later, Weight Watchers meetings leader Liz Josefsberg finally has a grip on her munchies. Her formula:
- Relax. "I realized that I can become very anxious at social events, and I eat to keep myself busy. Now I take a half-hour walk before the party to calm my nerves."
- Strategize. "Early in the day, I create a plan for what I will and won't eat. If I decide to have a drink, then I won't have dessert. And I don't eat standing up, because experts say our brains may not properly register it."
- Hit rewind. "If I have too many mini quiches, I don't continue to stuff my face and wait until the next day to resume my diet. Each minute is a chance to start over."
