4 Waist Saving Tips to Help you to Stay Trim When you Party

Written on the 19 January 2015 by Studio Pilates

Family gatherings, social events, and holidays are prime time for indulgences.

When it's time to party, it's easy to lose sight of your goal, relax, and have too good a time. Now, I'm not saying you have to restrict yourself. I actually think enjoying an indulgence or two is good for both body and soul. But beware: straying too far away from your eating plan can be a slippery slope.

Here are some tips that can keep you free and clear of that downhill course.

Eat before you go. If you arrive at a party or event on an empty stomach, you are much more likely to eat what is being served and those options are often going to be fatty.
Limit your alcohol intake. Not only are wine, beer, and mixed drinks filled with calories, the alcohol will wear away your resolve. Stick to a lower Kilojoule drink such as vodka, lime and soda and avoid sugary drinks.
If you're attending a family event, offer to bring a dish that you know is low in fat and/or kilojoules and that you will enjoy eating.
Focus on the people at the party and not the food after all, they are why you are there, not for the cake.

Just like everything else, enjoy in moderation and just because you are letting your hair down you don't have to forget about your goal.
