If party events conjure up visions of creamy cole slaw, foot-long hot dogs and bowls of potato chips, you need to brush up on your party survival skills.
Don't let parties throw you a curve ball! Stick to your new, healthy diet by getting some exercise and eating healthy on the day of the event.
Offer to bring a vegetable tray or fruit salad. This ensures you'll have something nutritious to eat if you're faced with high fat, high calorie party fare.
Drink plenty of water. Besides filling you up, water will keep you hydrated and healthy.
Don't go hungry. If you are "starving" when faced with a buffet of finger foods, you're more likely to fall into a eating frenzy.
Before you go, drink a delicious Chocolate or Vanilla Shake or munch on one of Medibar Diet's great new protein bars - Crunchy Fudge Graham, Double Chocolate, Brownie, Double Peanut Butter, Lemon Crunch, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Marshmallow, Cookies & Cream, Butter Pecan, Toffee, Coconut Almond, Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin, Peanut Butter, and Peanut Butter Crunch Bars.
Get active! If you're at a picnic, play a game of horseshoes or volleyball. If you're at a barbecue, suggest an after-meal walk around the neighborhood to fellow partygoers.
Plan smart and you'll be able to enjoy the party while you meet your weight loss goals.
