Some Dieting Tips to Fighting the Battle of the Bulge at Yule

November 26, 1987|United Press International

NEW YORK — Do your clothes fit tighter every year around Jan. 2? Does the endless round of holiday dinners and parties wreak annual havoc with your waistline?

This year could be different, say the editors of Weight Watchers magazine. With some planning and a little willpower, you can get through the holidays without gaining weight.

The magazine offers the following tips:

--Nip holiday binging in the bud. Don't eat impulsively because you're under stress or feel anxious, and remember that little snacks add up to big calories.

--Arrive at parties fashionably late; this can help you stick to a sensible eating pattern. Also, try to have a glass of some non-alcoholic, low-calorie beverage in your hand at all times to resist munching on snacks.

--Continue to exercise during the holiday season. Exercise puts people in a positive frame of mind, which will curb the craving to overeat.

--Stick to your usual regimen as much as possible during the holidays. Following a regular routine can help you cope with the temptations of all that holiday food.
