Alcohol and Weight Gain

To avoid holiday weight gain, limit your cocktail consumption.
Gram for gram, alcohol contains more calories than sugar — and, like most beverages, those empty calories won’t nourish you. Besides, getting tipsy can lower inhibitions and cloud your judgment so that a second helping of everything suddenly seems like an excellent idea.
When you arrive at a celebration, make the rounds before getting a round. Before piling food on your plate, take a quick look at all your options. Devise a plan that will allow you to sample your favorite foods without going overboard.
