Everyone agrees that skipping meals creates havoc in our bodies so Elizabeth Somer, RD, M.A., says keep your stomach filled and blood sugar level high by eating regular, small meals even when you're about to enjoy large family get-togethers.
Elizabeth says don't skip meals or fast all day in anticipation of a binge. You're better off eating small, light meals throughout the day, and a light snack before leaving for a large gathering. A quick fix-and-carry smoothie created with your Oster® MyBlend Personal Blender will make you less tempted to overdo it at the party. Keep in mind that every unnecessary nibble at the buffet table averages about 25 calories. Four of those mindless bites a day and you'll gain a pound a month.
