 Don't Let the Post-Holiday Bulge Get to You

Want to stay 'ship shape' inspite off the holiday season? Well, Linda Michalsky, assistant professor of clinical nutrition at UT Southwestern Medical Centre, offers tips to help keep in shape.

Gather your friends and relatives for a talk-as-you-walk after the meal and circle the table two or three times before getting seconds or dessert.

Limit portions to half or less than half what you would normally take for everything but your favorite dish.

Michalsky advises to wait 15 to 20 minutes before going back for seconds or dessert. If you cut a piece of pie/cake in half, someone will immediately grab the other half.

Use smaller plates, she says. If you only have large plates, leave some room so that part o the plate is visible.

Drink a lot of water between other beverages and choose a seat away from the food tables.
