WELL-BEING
PPLAARNNTEYR ’Tis the season of overindulgence! Cocktail
parties, cookie exchanges and celebrations can leave us with an unwanted holiday haul: extra
pounds. Here, we reveal healthy ways to manoeuvre around the buffet and bar while
still eating, drinking and being merry By Carli Whitwell

FULL SPEED AHEAD
GREEN-LIGHT THESE HEALTHIER OPTIONS

THE TIPPLES
All those holiday toasts can add up to a lot of calories – and it’s a vicious cycle. Sugar-laden spirits and mixers cause your blood sugar to spike and then crash, notes celebrity trainer Valerie Waters. That makes you want sugar, which is why you might find yourself reaching for the cookie tray. Sipping cocktails also means more stops in the bathroom, which creates a craving for sodium. Skip the eggnog and
opt for lower-calorie alcoholic beverages such as champagne (91 calories a glass)

or wine or wine spritzers. White wine has 140 calories a glass and light reds about 135 to 165 calories. A bonus for Malbec drinkers? Red wine also contains the antioxidant resveratrol.

THE TREATS

Give yourself the gift of a full stomach by noshing on lean sources of

protein and vegetables, advises nutritionist to the stars Lisa DeFazio.

Vegetables are full of fibre, vitamins and antioxidants, and you can

eat a lot for few calories. Proteins will “help satisfy you,”

says registered dietitian Abby Langer. She suggests seeking out shrimp cocktails (a dollop of cocktail sauce won’t hurt) and chicken skewers.

SLOW AND STEADY
PROCEED WITH CAUTION WITH THESE DELICIOUS SNACKS AND SIPPERS
THE TIPPLES
Your best middle ground, according to experts, includes skinny versions of your favourite cocktails. For example, if you like daiquiris, swap the supersweet frozen mixture for a DIY version and you can save yourself 300 calories. Light beer is another option. A 12-ounce can has about 50 fewer calories and fewer than half the carbohydrates of a regular beer. If hangover-free mornings are on your Christmas wish list, be sure to alternate each alcoholic beverage with a glass of water.
THE TREATS
If you’re up for a little indulgence, good options include cheese or quiches, which both contain hunger-quelling protein. Sushi is also a decent choice. Fish is low-fat, contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, calcium and vitamin D. Just beware any fried additions or lashings of rice. Also remember that all those hors d’oeuvres can add up. “You take, take, take all these little things and suddenly you’ve eaten 1,000 calories,” says Abby.

RED ALERT
PUT THE BRAKES ON EATING TOO MANY OF THESE DECADENT DELIGHTS

THE TIPPLES
Piña coladas. Baileys. Eggnog. Do you hear what we hear? Trouble! Piña coladas and their ilk can contain as many
calories as a cheeseburger; Irish cream liqueur is full of saturated fat, and eggnog boasts about 350 calories per cup. Mixed drinks are hidden landmines. A shot of vodka has between 60 and 100 calories, but that skyrockets when you add fruit juice, lemonade or pop. “Sodas will be high in sugar and calories, so don’t waste calories on them,” says Lisa. Swap them out for a club soda or diet pop.

THE TREATS
Studies show that most of us gain about a pound during the That can add up over the years. Overdoing it on anything creamy (think crab cakes and dips), fried or flaky (those delicious sausage rolls) are big no-nos. “They’re just dripping in fat. Anything that leaves a mark on your napkin is a terrible choice,” says Abby. That goes for pastries, too. These are typically made with white flour, which means fewer nutrients and fibre. “You want to avoid the fast carbs – white flour or sugars – so any cookies, candies, pizzas and bread,” says Valerie. Adds Abby: “Remember this rule: ‘You can have one of anything, just don’t have one of everything.’”

THE DISH Reality TV star Nicole likes to deck the halls with a glass of eggnog. “People actually think it’s really gross, but I love it.” THE VERDICT Go easy on this treat, which is traditionally made with cream, egg yolks and lots of sugar. “It’s like a milkshake, basically,” says Abby.
