'Tis the season to be jolly. The holidays are in full swing, and that means you probably have plenty of gatherings, parties and dinners on your plate... as well as plenty of season's eatings that are loaded with fat and calories.

There are ways to stay on track and still enjoy the festivities. It's simply a matter of some strategizing. For starters, it's far too commonplace to arrive at parties feeling absolutely famished. Your first stop is the buffet table, where you load up on pigs in blankets, mini quiches and coconut shrimp that probably total three days worth of calories. Stick to your healthy eating regimen and don't skip any meals in preparation for the event. Try to go for a balanced breakfast, a light lunch and maybe a salad or snack before the party.
