2: Tame the party animalLet's get realistic about this. How many parties do you expect to attend in the next few weeks, including New Year's Eve? Two or three a week? Do you realize that if you drink two glasses of wine at each of those parties, by the end of the season, you'll have drunk more than half a pound of extra weight? The worst part about holiday party wine is that, usually, it's not even the good stuff.
Tip: Play the Good Samaritan and assign yourself the designated driver. Then you have a compelling reason not to drink. If you really want a glass of wine, keep an expensive bottle at home and enjoy a glass at home when you return from the party.
