1. Don't go to the event with food on your mind: keep to your daily routine and make sure you eat 30 minutes prior to attending event.
2. Find the healthy options: most parties/events will have a fruit and veggie tray. Be sure to locate and use as your go to throughout the party.
3. Portion Control: If this is a sit down dinner, try to specify how you want your meal prepared, if that is not an option, eat 1/2 of the meal in front of you.
4. Liquid Consumption: Keep alcohol to a minimum. Have a full glass of water between each beverage. Overindulgence in #4 will render #1-3 useless!
