1. Be more active. If you exercise for 30 minutes three times a week, increase that to 45 minutes five times a week.

2. Plan ahead, never go to a party hungry. It is easy to lose your inhibitions if you’re starving; then everything looks good.

3. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Aim for seven a day.

4. Choose wisely. Select the simplest foods on the buffet that are not fried or coated with sauces.

5. Eat a small portion of the dessert that looks best to you.

6. Watch the drinks. A light beer or wine will have fewer calories.

7. Practice saying “no thanks.”

8. Enjoy socializing. Conversation has

zero calories.

9. Consider bringing a low-calorie treat that you’ll enjoy. Most people love fruit.

10. Reduce temptation by eating only in the break room at the office or at the kitchen table at home.
