Rodgers: When you’re getting ready to go to a family gathering or celebration and you know there’s going to be a lot of food around, planning ahead really helps.
Narrator: He recommends these tips when it comes to holiday celebrations: Don’t “save up” for big meals, rather have a light snack beforehand; keep an eye on the drinks, alcohol in particular adds calories and enhances appetite; and go easy on dessert.
