The September/October issue of Weight Watchers magazine (www.Weightwatchers.com) offered up 3 tips for getting through a party without overeating. I think their ideas can work anytime, anywhere. Here they are: (1) get a good night’s sleep! Sleep deprivation can lead to overeating, so get your zzz’s. (2) Rehearse in your mind the food and amount you will eat at your next meal or snack. “Seeing” it beforehand can prevent overeating. And (3) take a brisk 15 minute walk – doing so has been shown to reduce sugar cravings and increase mood. The next time you feel like you might overeat give these tips a try. What have you got to lose but some weight?!
