Top 10 Holiday Diet Tips of All Time

To help you survive the seasonal parties without packing on the pounds, WebMD consulted diet gurus across the country for their best holiday diet tips. Here are their top 10 recommendations:

1. Trim back the trimmings.To shave calories, go easy when adding nuts, cheese, cream sauces, gravy, butter, and whipped cream.
2. Wear snug clothes and keep one hand busy. Hold a drink in your dominant hand so it won't be so easy to grab food.
3. Chew gum. When you don't want to eat, pop a piece of sugarless gum into your mouth. This works well when you're cooking or when you're trying not to dive into the buffet.
4. Be a food snob. If you don't love it, don't eat it, And don't think it's your responsibility to sample everything on the buffet.
5. No skipping meals. "People who skip meals to save up calories tend to overeat everything in sight 
once they get there," says Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD, author of Diet Simple.
6. Check it out. When you arrive at the party, grab a sparkling water with a twist, and wait at least 30 minutes before eating.
7. Add fun and games. Take the focus off food and getting family and friends more active during holiday parties.
8. Alternate alcohol with nonalcoholic beverages. Cuts calories in half.
9. Skip the appetizers. If you need a little nibble before the meal, go for the veggies, fruit, salsa, or a small handful of nuts.
10. Limit the variety.  "Variety stimulates appetite...limit your choices to just a few items and stick with these, it will be easier to control than eating a little bit of 20 different dishes" according to David Katz, MD, MPH, author of The Flavor Point Diet.
