Come October and time of festivity begins.first it's Durga Puja and now Diwali is round the corner and it will be followed by wedding season and up next Christmas and new year parties. all this festivity means feasting.overeating ruins your digestion system as well as give you some extra weight. Here are some specific tips to help you to enjoy eating out without the guilt. 1. Always eat a healthy light dinner before you go to a party. 2. At appetizer tables, choose two or three of your favorites and put them on a small plate or, better yet, a napkin. Then, walk away. When you're done with your food, throw away the napkin or take your plate to the kitchen. Avoid large plates. 3. At a buffet, cover most of your plate with vegetables and fruits. Then find room for smaller portions of the high-calorie main dishes. 4. Watch out times when you feel guilty for overeating. Just because you slipped up at lunch isn't license to overindulge all day. Remember: One meal is one meal. One day is one day. 5. On the nights you decide to have a drink, limit yourself to one or two. And don't indulge every night. 6. If you are drinking, alternate alcoholic beverages with nonalcoholic drinks such as fresh lime soda or water salted / fresh fruit juice. Drink extra water to help flush out the excess sodium you consume during rich meals. 7. No matter how busy you get, make time for a healthy breakfast. Eating a morning meal will help control cravings later on. 8. Store healthy snacks at the front of your fridge and pantry, and go for them before you treat yourself to the splurge stuff.
