1. Wear A Tight Dress

It’s science people- if you wear something tight, you won’t be able to overeat because there’s just no fucking room. Also, if you wear something tight you’ll likely have kept up your diet prior to the event so that you look good in what you’re wearing. So away with those elastic waist band pants and in with a cute body con dress.

2.  Mix in waters in between drinks

I used to be one of those people that never drank water, like ever- and i didn’t understand why I was hungry all the time. Turns out, half the time when you’re hungry you’re actually dehydrated and your body is trying to get hydrated through food. I’m not saying you can’t get drunk, just alternate with water so you stay satiated.

3. Seat yourself next to healthy shit

If you sit yourself next to the mashed potatoes and stuffing, chances are you’re going to fill your plate with that first. So sit yourself next to high protein options like turkey and veggie options like the salads so your plate fills up with that first. Leave little spaces for carbs so you can control yourself.

4. Don’t skip breakfast

A lot of people have the tactic of skipping breakfast to make room for the big meal at night. I know I probably sound like your mom saying this but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day and it will keep your metabolism running all day. Also, since you haven’t been starving yourself you’ll be less likely to inhale an entire bread basket upon walking into the event.

5. Keep Track

It’s easy to get carried away eating hors d’oeuvres while socializing so just make sure you keep a mental note of how much you have because those mini sliders can add up. Trust me.

6.  Dance off the Calories

Hit the d floor and you’ll feel less guilty about all the carbs you ate. Regina George didn’t choreograph a dance to jingle bell rock for nothing- I’m on an all carb diet GOD KAREN
